Skoda Enyaq iV electric SUV spied on Indian roads completely undisguised
Skoda Enyaq iV electric SUV has been spotted testing on the Indian roads for the very first time and that too completely undisguised. This directly indicates that the company is looking forward to joining the league of carmakers in India that have announced EV offerings, the latest being Kia with its EV6 electric crossover. The new sighting of the Enyaq iV electric SUV hints that the car could go on sale in the country as soon as 2023.
Seen without any covers whatsoever, it is rumoured that the test unit was the top-spec Enyaq iV 80x electric variant. It comes based on Volkswagen’s MEB platform which is dedicatedly designed for electric vehicles and is also shared with Audi Q4 e-Tron and Volkswagen ID4. In terms of exterior proportions, the Enyaq iV measures 4,648 mm in length, 1,877 mm in width, and 1,616 mm tall. At this measurement, the Enyaq iV stands a tad smaller than the Skoda Octavia.
