Efficient, emotive and electrifying – these attributes neatly sum up the ENYAQ iV. In launching its first all-electric SUV, the Czech car manufacturer has taken the biggest step yet in its electromobility strategy. The new ENYAQ iV is the first ŠKODA production model to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform. It is built at ŠKODA’s main plant in Mladá Boleslav, making it the only MEB-based model in Europe to be manufactured outside of Germany. ŠKODA’s new flagship boasts generous amounts of space as is typical of the brand, and – thanks to its emotive design language – its appearance is electrifying too. Inside, new Design Selections replace the classic trim levels, while a clear and new structure of the options available means the car can be configured with just a few clicks. The ENYAQ iV comes with rear- or all-wheel drive, and there are five power levels and three battery sizes to choose from. The range of more than 520 km in the WLTP cycle is perfectly suitable for travelling long distances. The car will be launched in the spring of 2021.
DS 4 Platform & Latest generation Hybrid
The new evolution of the EMP2 platform introduces new parts in composite materials, hot-stamped structural parts and more compact elements such as the air conditioning unit, which allows offering more storage space. The trunk volume is 430 liters, with hands-free access and a motorized tailgate. The new evolution of the EMP2 platform has been designed to meet the latest impact regulations and satisfy the most stringent consumers without compromising the overall mass of the structure. The notion of dynamic serenity so cherished by DS Automobiles goes even further. The use of technical solutions such as pseudo-gluing (about 34 meters of glue bead and welding points applied to the vehicle's structure) as well as completely redesigned suspension and steering elements, guarantee a driving pleasure that is a benchmark, thanks to optimal body torsion and exceptional feel that invites driving pleasure.
To celebrate the European launch of the all-new Honda Civic e:HEV, the car took centre stage at the Vanity Fair ‘Social Garden’ exhibition at Milan Design Week 2022. Honda’s all-new 11th-generation Civic has been engineered with a unique human-centred approach to dynamics and design. Following the ‘exhilarating Civic’ development ethos, Honda engineers focused on how exterior and interior packaging can work together to create a more comfortable and refreshing in-car experience that will enhance owners’ everyday lives.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV is the sportiest version yet of the new, all-electric SUV from Mladá Boleslav. Its look is characterised by a range of black design features and large wheels, while the lowered sports chassis makes for a particularly dynamic driving experience. The interior adds to the sporty feel, thanks to decorative, carbon-style trims, a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel and seats with integrated headrests. ŠKODA’s new flagship model range now includes a SPORTLINE variant, offered in three performance levels. The ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 60 has an output of 132 kW, while the ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80 produces 150 kW. Both feature rear-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive ENYAQ SPORTLINE iV 80x is equipped with two electric motors generating a combined output of 195 kW.
