ŠKODA unveils electric SUV based on VW’s MEB platform: 510 km of range, and more

ŠKODA has unveiled the ENYAQ iV, an interesting new electric SUV based on VW’s MEB platform for mass production of electric vehicles.

All of Volkswagen brands are benefiting from the development of the MEB platform, a modular electric platform that can support a variety of different vehicle models.

The Czech ŠKODA is one of the first to take advantage of it with the new ENYAQ iV unveiled today.

They have been teasing the vehicle for months, but we are now finally seeing the production version.

Thomas Schäfer, CEO of ŠKODA, commented on the launch:

“The launch of the ENYAQ iV sees the start of a new era for ŠKODA. This is our first all-electric car to be based on the MEB platform. By launching this model, we are making E-Mobility Simply Clever – with long ranges, quick charging, ease of operation and affordable prices. The ENYAQ iV is made in ŠKODA’s heartland, Mladá Boleslav, making our main plant the only production facility for MEB-based vehicles in Europe outside Germany. This is a great testament to ŠKODA’s expertise and I would like to thank the entire team that got the ENYAQ iV rolling. It’s a great car and I’m really proud of the team.”
