It’s only been a few days since Skoda announced the Enyaq Coupe iV, and already the VW-owned marque has revealed the pricing of the top-spec vRS version. At a price of £51,885 ($70,381), this all-electric SUV will be the most expensive Skoda ever sold regardless of ICE power or not. This is also the first all-electric car to hold a vRS badge.
Powered by two motors, the car boasts 295 horsepower and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. Along with the vRS badge, the car also gains a sporty suspension setup which lowers the car by 15mm at the front and 10mm at the rear. Dynamic steering finishes off the handling improvements.
Of course, being electric, it’s slightly faster to 60mph than an ICE car with 300 horses, reaching 62mph in 6.5 seconds. It won’t blow you away, but it’ll certainly get you out of a tight spot. Top speed is however limited to 111mph to allow for a higher range sitting at 309 miles (497km). And when you’re out of electrons, 36 minutes will give you 80% of them back thanks to 135kW charging of the battery.
To reflect its higher performance on the outside, it comes equipped with 20-inch Taurus wheels with 21-inch Vision wheels available as an option. It’ll get full LED matrix headlights, an illuminated Crystal Face grille, a panoramic sunroof, and a number of gloss black accents.
Inside the car you’re treated to a 13-inch infotainment system and an accompanying 5.3-inch instrument cluster behind the wheel to view from perforated leather sports seats. This leather carries on onto the dashboard where you’ll also find carbon fibre accents, and ambient LED lighting. The pedals are finished in aluminium.
Skoda is accepting orders for the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS from February 17 with the already discussed price tag of over £50 grand. The equivalent SUV from VW, the ID.5 GTX Coupe, will set you back almost another £10,000 on top of that, so this is surprisingly the more economical option.
Deliveries will begin in July.
