Just a few days after the debut of the Enyaq Coupe iV, Skoda announced UK pricing for the new flagship vRS version. Starting at £51,885 ($70,381), the fully electric coupe SUV is the most expensive new Skoda ever, surpassing the regular Enyaq iV and all ICE-powered models including the Superb sedan. Notably, this is also Skoda’s first electric model to get the vRS badge.
The Skoda Enyaq Coupe iV vRS is powered by a dual electric motor setup producing a combined 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. The vRS badge means you get a sporty suspension setup, bringing the SUV closer to the ground by 15 mm (0.5 inches) at the front and by 10 mm (0.4 inches) at the back, plus Dynamic steering.
The most powerful electric Skoda can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 6.5 seconds, making it 0.2 seconds quicker than the Skoda Octavia RS, although top speed is limited to 111 mph (179 km/h) for the sake of range. Speaking of which, the 82kWh (77kWh net) battery pack provides the vRS with a WLTP range of 309 miles (497 km). The battery supports rapid DC charging of up to 135 kW, taking only 36 minutes to reach 80%.
The exterior design is characterized by the standard 20-inch Taurus wheels (optional 21-inch Vision wheels), full LED matrix headlights, illuminated Crystal Face grille, panoramic sunroof, and gloss black accents with extra slits at the front and a full-width reflector at the back. Inside, standard equipment includes the 5.3-inch digital instrument cluster combined with a 13-inch infotainment touchscreen, sports seats upholstered in perforated leather, sports steering wheel, leather-style upholstery for the dashboard, carbon-look accents, aluminum pedals, and LED ambient lighting.
Skoda will start accepting orders for the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS on February 17, with the first deliveries in the UK scheduled for the end of July. The £51,885 ($70,381) price tag makes the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS more expensive even than the VW ID.4 GTX sibling which starts at £48,510 ($65,788) even though the equivalent VW ID.5 GTX coupe-SUV starts at £58,640 ($79,528).
