Skoda Auto has finally lifted the curtains off its first electric SUV - the 2021 Enyaq iV. The model started life as the Skoda Vision iV concept showcased at the Geneva Motor Show last year and is the newest model to be based on the Volkswagen Group's MEB architecture for electric vehicles. It is the Czech cousin of the Volkswagen ID.4 electric SUV that will go on sale in Europe by the end of 2020. The 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV electric SUV is slightly smaller than the new-generation Octavia in terms of dimensions while offering the same cabin space as its largest SUV - the Kodiaq. It is the second all-electric offering from the Czech carmaker after the CITIGOe iV.

The Illuminated Grille on the 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV brings the new Crystal Face on the electric SUV and comes with 130 LEDs

The all-new Skoda Enyaq iV electric SUV boasts of strong yet simple lines and the production-ready model looks identical to the sketches released over the past few weeks. The SUV gets the new 'Crystal Face' that is illuminated and is quite the surprise on the offering. Skoda also says that the new Crystal Face is a new design direction that will be seen on future offerings as well. The unit uses 130 LEDs to achieve the illumination and has been borrowed from the concept version.

The sharply styled headlamp cluster is an all-LED unit on the new Enyaq iV, while the rear also sports LED taillights with the razor-sharp design. Skoda is also offering Matrix LED headlights as an optional feature on the SUV. The offering comes with 18-inch wheels right from the base variant and that's extremely likeable, while the range-topping versions get the massive 21-inch alloys on offer.

Inside, the 2021 Skoda Enyaq iV gets tastefully done interiors with a minimal and clutter-free look. The cabin uses a healthy mix of natural, processed and recycled materials with ten theme packages available along with the option to personalise the cabin to the owner's taste. The centre-piece is the massive 13-inch touchscreen infotainment system that shares its user interface with other Skoda cars, but the unit remains exclusive to the Enyaq iV. The new Virtual Cockpit also features on the car along with the new three-spoke steering wheel. The electric SUV is also loaded on the technology front with features like a head-up display with augmented reality and remote-controlled parking.

Like all Skoda vehicles, the new Enyaq iV too comes with ample clever features like the tip-to-close electric tailgate, virtual pedal, and sleep package that puts the car's electrics on sleep mode. There's an ice scraper with a tyre tread depth gauge on the inside of the tailgate. Despite the massive proportions, Skoda claims a drag coefficient of 0.27 cd on the Enyaq iV electric SUV. This, along with the low rolling resistance tyres help improve efficiency. There's also an optional heat pump for the AC that cuts down the amount of energy used by the battery to further improve range.

The safety equipment on the electric SUV is expansive as well with nine airbags, Proactive occupant protection system, Crew Protect Assist, Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist, Exit warning, and a bunch of other active and passive safety aids.
