Leasing a Skoda Enyaq
Impressive electric car - Practical and spacious
The Skoda Enyaq iV is a contract hire electric car that has been launched into a competitive segment and it offers a practical and spacious vehicle. It is a sound alternative to rivals and as a purpose-built offering, the Enyaq impresses on several levels.
ENGINES AND PERFORMANCE FOR THE SKODA ENYAQ
The entry-level Skoda Enyaq iV car lease range is powered by a 62kWh battery and a 180 HP electrical motor. This will deliver a range of 242 miles.
The alternative is a battery of 82kWh and two motors delivering 265 HP for a range of 316 miles. Both versions have two-wheel drive and Skoda is planning to unveil four-wheel drive versions.
There's a lot to enjoy performance-wise with the larger battery offering a 0 to 62mph sprint time of less than seven seconds.
Opt for the vRS Enyaq as a contract hire choice, and drivers will get electric motors producing 306 HP for a sprint time of 6.2 seconds. That model's range is 285 miles.

EQUIPMENT AND HANDLING FOR THE SKODA ENYAQ
Of the new battery-powered cars, there's a lot to like about the Skoda Enyaq iV – the iV highlights that it is a battery-powered offering. It's a family-sized car with a luxurious interior and a value-for-money car lease creation. It's taking on the likes of the Volkswagen ID.4, which is of a similar size, and the battery ranges really do impress.
The batteries can be charged at public charging stations with 50kW facilities, and drivers can also use fast chargers to reach 80% of the battery's capacity in 38 minutes. Since the Enyaq has zero emissions, it will be a very attractive offering to company car drivers.
Inside, the interior resembles the Octavia and there are few physical buttons. There's a 13.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment display and most of the car's functions will be operated with it.
The digital instrument display is clear and easy-to-use and there's also Skoda's virtual assistant - she's called Laura - who helps when driving. There's also wireless smartphone compatibility and drivers can remotely control some of the equipment, such as preconditioning the climate control and charging the battery.
This is a well-equipped and comfortable car lease choice, and the new head-up display to project important driving information on the windscreen impresses.
It's also a practical interior, ideal for families, and the boot is 585 litres in size.
On the move, the Enyaq is quiet and smooth and there's decent grip should you decide to put the car through its paces.
It's very quick from a standing start and the adaptive suspension offers just the right amount of softness to suit a driver's personal taste and boost comfort.
Essentially, the Skoda Enyaq is the carmaker's first 'proper' electric car leasing model that it has brought to the market and for the money, it's a hugely impressive offering.
