Skoda Enyaq Coupe begins tests; Enyaq’s Indian launch under investigation

The Skoda Enyaq that is under consideration for launch in India will get a coupe sibling next year. SKODAHOME.cz forum member Michal Z has snapped the yet-to-be-named Skoda Enyaq Coupe testing on public roads. Think of it as the same relationship by the BMW X6 and the X5.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupe will be the closest road-going version of the Skoda Vision iV, the brand’s MEB show car from the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Compared to Skoda Enyaq it should have a wider and lower body, along with a roof dropping steeply to the rear and into the short D-pillars. Changes in the proportions would give it a planted stance and a visibly more athletic character.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupe would look similar to the Skoda Enyaq, but the silhouette would have a close resemblance to the Skoda Vision iV.

The exterior design could have differences with respect to the bumpers, grille, fenders, wheels, etc., but the interior shouldn’t change. Enhanced aerodynamics would allow the coupe version to accelerate a tad faster and have a lower energy consumption in driving. For reference, the regular version goes 0-100 km/h as quickly as in 6.2 seconds and has a drag coefficient of 0.27 Cd. The Skoda Enyaq Coupe should come with all or most of the Skoda Enyaq battery pack and motor options.

Theoretically, the coupe version should offer better performance and a higher range in the same configurations. For reference, below are the Skoda Enyaq iV specifications:

EVW gathers that the Enyaq iV could have more than just one derivative. The range could be expanded in the coming years and it is likely that Skoda would go in the downward direction than create more premium vehicles.

The Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV could debut in early 2021, shortly after deliveries of the Skoda Enyaq iV in Europe begin. Due to the high importance of rear-seat comfort in India, the coupe version may not be deemed fit. If the regular version gets the green signal, the launch could happen in 2022.
