New 2022 Skoda Enyaq Coupé vRS

Sleek electric SUV gets hot 295bhp vRS flagship

Following the successful launch of the ENYAQ iV, ŠKODA is now adding an elegant coupé to the range. The line-up will also include a hot vRS variant,  the first electric model from the Czech firm to gain the performance vRS badging.

The new Enyaq Coupé vRS uses twin electric motors, one for each axle and produce a combined 295bhp and 338lb ft resulting in a 6.5 second 0-62mph time and a top speed of 111mph. Compared to 99mph for the standard versions.

No range has been released yet but expect around 300 miles, similar to near identical Volkswagen ID.5 GTX.

 Unlike the regular Enyaq Coupe, the vRS is only available with Skoda’s larger 82kWh battery, the largest unit offered with the VW Group's MEB architecture and a handy towing capacity of 1400kg.

With a maximum charging capability of 135kW, the vRS can be topped up from 10 to 80 per cent in 29 minutes, while home recharges will take between six and eight hours depending on the wall power output.

The Enyaq vRS sits on 20” wheels (21” versions are available) connected to a sportier suspension set-up, the vRS also features Skoda’s ‘Crystal Face’ grille, which lights up using 131 LEDs, and a full-width red reflector strip at the rear, in keeping with existing vRS models. The vRS features more gloss black detailing, with a grille surround and rear diffuser and bespoke vRS badging.

The Hyper Green paint shown is also an option.

On the inside, a bespoke design package can be specified which gets sporty, vRS embroidered black perforated leather seats with grey piping and contrasting stitching, a leather-style dashboard, carbon fibre effect trim elements and vRS-badged sports seats. The rest of the interior follows suit with the standard Coupé and full-sized SUV, that consists of a 5.3” digital display and a 13” central touchscreen. All Coupé models get a two-spoke, heated, multi-function steering wheel and are equipped with paddles for adjusting the level of energy recuperation under deceleration. Also standard for the vRS is a tri-zone climate control system.

While the Enyaq Coupe’s roofline is lower than the standard car’s, Skoda claims headroom in the rear is on par with that of an Octavia Estate, while the vRS’s boot stands at 570 litres. A powered tailgate will be available as an option, along with Skoda’s hands-free Virtual Pedal system.

Over-the-air software update capability means that the car’s infotainment system can be updated too, with Skoda already planning options that can be activated from the infotainment system. These include additional colours for the ambient lighting, Adaptive Cruise Control and Light Assist from the second half of this year.

There’s also a MySkoda app that can be used to schedule charging or pre-condition the car’s climate control ahead of starting your journey.
