Enyaq is to be the name of Skoda's first electric SUV based on the Volkswagen Group's Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB).

With its first all electric SUV, Skoda is establishing a new naming convention that combines the 'E' in reference to electromobility and the 'Q' characterising the final letter of Skoda's successful SUV family. The name of the new Skoda Enyaq is derived from the Irish name 'Enya', meaning 'source of life'. Enya itself comes from the Irish Gaelic word 'Eithne', meaning 'essence', 'spirit' or 'principle'. The 'source of life' symbolises the start of a new era as the car manufacturer enters into electromobility.

The Skoda Enyaq is the Czech brand's first series-production vehicle based on the Volkswagen Group's MEB. A series of more than 10 electric models will be launched under the Skoda iV sub-brand by the end of 2022. By 2025, Skoda expects all electric vehicles and models with plug-in hybrid drives to account for 25% of sales. By 2021, the car manufacturer will have invested $3 billion in the development of electric models and a holistic, interconnected ecosystem for modern and environmentally friendly mobility solutions.
