Skoda is already working on the next more powerful and cheaper Enyaq

The Skoda Enyaq was the Czech company’s first volume electric vehicle. Now, the company is already planning what its second generation will be like. The Czech brand is impatient for the launch of its renewed Skoda Enyaq, And it’s not that this is going to happen soon, but quite the opposite. The model could still be considered a newcomer, since its launch occurred just three years ago, while its first deliveries were at the beginning of 2021. However, Skoda goes one step further and assures that they are already available. working on what its next generation will be like in all possible aspects and sections, given the time that remains for its arrival.

The new Skoda Enyaq

If everything the CEO pointed out is confirmed, we would be talking about an extremely long development, since the manager does not foresee the commercial launch of the second generation of the Enyaq until, at least, the year 2028. That is, five years before its series production, the brand is already working on this new generation of electric SUVs.

Skoda Enyaq

He has given important clues in this regard. First of all, the second-generation Enyaq will employ the SSP platform. It will be the first Skoda vehicle to use it. “At that time, the Enyaq, which, by the way, will be built in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic, will be based on the SSP platform.” When asked about the possible appearance of the renewal of the Enyaq and its possible differences compared to the current one, the manager responded “we are still working on that.”

Given that the current Skoda Enyaq has been a car of considerable commercial success, it is unlikely that the company will move away from the concept released by the compact electric SUV, although it is expected to adopt the new design language they call “Modern Solid”. and the basis of the Vision 7S conceptual model that they presented a few months ago. At the same time, the next Enyaq will benefit from the different technologies promoted by the Volkswagen Group in all aspects.

The first details of the next Enyaq suggest that it will appear under an 800-volt electrical architecture, which will give it the ability to recharge from 10% to 80% of its battery capacity after just 12 minutes of plugging in. In parallel, a significant increase in its range can also be expected, since at that point it should exceed 700 kilometers per charge without major inconveniences. However, it is too early to state this definitively.

By adopting a technology that should already be well established by 2028, Skoda hopes that its price will be proportionally lower than what it costs to buy an Enyaq today. In general terms, the acquisition cost could be comparable to that of a current Kodiaq. The first official data on this renovation will still take until at least a couple of years before its commercial launch.
