    The all-electric Skoda Enyaq iV SportLine adds sportier looks, bigger wheels and more style

    Skoda has added a new SportLine trim to its Enyaq iV all-electric SUV range, featuring a lowered sports chassis, 20-inch alloy wheels and plenty of black exterior detailing.

    The gloss back trim applies to the grille surround, detailing on the front and rear bumpers, the mirrors caps, window line surround, badging and the car’s subtle rear spoiler.

    Inside, the Skoda Enyaq iV SportLine receives a pair of bucket seats that offer more support, a three-spoke multi-function steering wheel and carbon fibre-effect trim inlays.

    The SportLine chassis has been lowered by 15mm at the front and 10mm at the rear, so while it’s not a full-on performance model, this should lower the Enyaq’s centre of gravity for slightly sharper handling.

    This new trim level will be available with a choice of two powertrains, starting with the Enyaq iV 80, which boasts a 201bhp electric motor. As the car is based on the VW Group’s MEB platform for electric vehicles, this drives the rear wheels for a predicted 0-62mph time of 8.5 seconds, while the Enyaq iV 80 will offer a claimed range of up to 323 miles (WLTP).

    Buyers wanting more performance can opt for the Enyaq iV 80x, which features two electric motors for all-wheel drive, offering a total of 261bhp and 425Nm of torque. Skoda claims a range of 311 miles between charges is possible.

    Both models feature an 82kWh lithium-ion battery, of which 77kWh is usable, that can be recharged in 13 hours from a 7.2kW home wallbox feed. Unlike some Enyaq iV trims, SportLine won’t be available with the brand’s smaller 58kWh battery.

    While the Enyaq SportLine will receive larger alloys, the design featured in our images is not yet confirmed for the UK. However, this trim level does benefit from full matrix LED headlights as standard.

    Skoda is yet to announce pricing for the new Enyaq iV SportLine variants, but expect this trim level to start from around £38,000 for the lower-powered iV 80 model, including the £3,000 government plug-in car grant.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>This would make a fine addition to the motabiliy scheme. And 323 mile range is very practical indeed however there is now a compelling case for an increase in the BHP limit.</p>

    Yes, I think a power to weight ratio limit would be better than a BHP limit, you need a few extra BHP to move the larger battery around.

    Those larger wheels on the Enyaq SportLine will merely make it look prettier at the expense of range.

    There’s no question it will change they have no choice unless they want to provide a small number of EVs in the future.

    I spoke to my local Skoda dealer yesterday. They anticipate the car (doubt this version) being on the scheme in Q4.

    Has anyone spoken to Motability about the Enyaj?

    I think we all have to accept that the bigger more expensive cars will not be appearing even in their cheaper guise, i think Motability will concentrate on small to medium EVs with the odd specialised vehicle like the NV200 for people who need full size electric wheelchairs. I truly believe that the EV revolution will say goodbye to luxury cars on the scheme purely down to the cost.

    I hope you are wrong Stuart but fear that there may be some truth in your thoughts.

    Considering that there are already plenty of cars at around this price point and some up to £50k already on the scheme and that the service costs on EV’s are cheaper, I see no reason that they won’t be on the scheme.

    The problem is currently the demand is so high from the general public, that they (The manufacturers) don’t need to reduce the price as they sell every car they can make at the full list, but the demand will start to drop, they will be able to make more vehicles and then they will come on the scheme, I’d expect them both on the scheme in the next 12 months
