Series production of the Enyaq iV starts today at Skoda's main plant in Mlada Boleslav. The 100% battery-electric SUV is the first Skoda series production model based on the Volkswagen Group's Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB).

At its headquarters in Mlada Boleslav, Skoda has invested $51.1 million in the conversion work required to enable both MEB and MQB models to be produced on the same line. In the future, Skoda will be manufacturing up to 350 units of the Enyaq iV here every day in a fully flexible manner alongside the Octavia and Karoq series.

Skoda upgraded its Mlada Boleslav factory so as to be able to produce the all-electric Enyaq iV as safely as possible alongside the Octavia and Karoq
Skoda has also introduced safety measures in the area of battery handling, for example, by installing thermal imaging cameras. These monitor the temperature in the workshop around the clock and trigger an alarm if any deviation is detected.

The Skoda Enyaq iV's two battery sizes and four performance variants ensure a sustainable yet fun driving experience. In the two most powerful variants, a second electric motor on the front axle works in combination with the rear motor. Depending on the battery size, the range is up to 508km.

Design Selections have replaced the traditional equipment lines for the interior. The harmonised interior options are inspired by modern living environments and use sustainably processed and recycled materials such as wool and leather tanned with plant extracts.

The Enyaq iV is also the first Skoda model to feature a Head-Up Display with Augmented Reality, which displays information on the speed and traffic signs in two areas of the driver's primary field of vision.
