Skoda Australia is getting set to introduce the Enyaq EV next year, topped by the latest
250kW RS version.

It will be the most powerful vehicle ever offered by the brand.

Upgraded Enyaq RS debuts in Europe in both five-door SUV and SUV Coupe body styles,
with a range of up to 547km (WLTP).

It dispatches the dash from 0 to 100km/h in just 5.5 seconds.

Enyaq 85 (previously called 80) moves to 210kW of power, with up to 576km range, rear-
wheel drive and 0 to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds – two seconds faster than the previous
150kW version.

Skoda’s Kieran Merrigan said the Enyaq 85 and Enyaq RS will arrive in Australia at the
same time in July, 2024 as upgraded models destined to become a highly compelling
electric medium SUV alternative.

“Both the 210kW and 250kW Enyaq are the most powerful Skoda models we have ever
offered, while delivering among the longest electric vehicle driving range in the electric
medium SUV segment,” he said.

“Skoda customers are also among the most discerning and progressive in the market, and
the Australian love affair with RS-badged product continues.

“Together this tells us that our performance and technology flagship, as an appealing
SUV, will be warmly welcomed into the market from mid next year.”

Upgraded Skoda Enyaq’s more advanced electric motors, batteries and thermal
management – such as the ability to pre-heat the battery – deliver an increased charging
speed and better overall driving experience.

Charging for both the Enyaq 85 and Enyaq RS offer a peak capacity of up to 175kW,
reducing the recharge time from 10 to 80 per cent to 28 minutes.

Australian models will also include new 4.0 software that brings a completely redesigned
user interface with a more intuitive design.

The virtual instrument panel and head-up display also receive new graphics, and the voice
assistant is improved.
