Škoda Auto, the car maker from the Czech Republic that builds its models similar to Volkswagen Group vehicles, will offer you an internal combustion gasoline vehicle for longer journeys if you hire an electric car.
The company launched its first five-seater electric SUV, the Enyaq iV, which uses the same powertrain and technologies as the Volkswagen ID. 4. The Enyaq iV is in the same category as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, the electric Volvo XC40, the Kia e-Niro and imminently the Tesla Model Y (at the earliest in May).
Initially, Škoda’s Enyaq iV will be available in two versions. The Enyaq iV 60 has a 62 kilowatt-hour battery and the more expensive Enyaq iV 80 has an 82 kilowatt-hour battery, while both have single rear-mounted electric motors for rear-wheel drive. . The distance traveled on the battery is between 412 kilometers and 697 kilometers. Both cars charge at a maximum rate of 50 kilowatts, unless you specify a load of 100 kilowatts and 125 kilowatts for the 60 and 80, respectively.
All-wheel drive Enyaqs with a second electric motor for the front axle are under construction, as well as a faster vRS version, Top Gear reported.
As with any new type of product, Škoda offers an electric vehicle rental package to ease the minds of potential buyers who have always used internal combustion gasoline vehicles.
“Switching to an electric car has never been easier thanks to Škoda Lease & Care. With a Lease & Care plan, everything is covered by a simple monthly payment with the maintenance and car costs also included ”, says Škoda on its UK website.
There are three different Lease & Care packages.
“All of our care packages are available with an optional annual allowance of seven days from VWFS car hire which can be added to your monthly payment. This gives you access to a range of vehicles for added peace of mind on those long journeys or if you just need something a little different for the weekend, ”Škoda said.
