VW-Group owned Skoda has started series production of the new Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV at its main plant in Mladá Boleslav.
Like the Enyaq iV, it is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB). More than 120 units of the elegant coupé will be produced every day at the main plant alongside the Enyaq iV, Octavia and Octavia iV model series.
Michael Oeljeklaus, Skoda board member for production and logistics, said: “Last year, we produced 50,000 units of the Skoda Enyaq iV. Now we are taking it to the next level by launching production of the new Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV. I would like to congratulate the team on the successful completion of the preparation phase. It’s a great honour for the entire team that the coupé version of our successful electric SUV is also being produced at the heart of the brand, in Mladá Boleslav.”
Some 2000 employees will be assembling more than 120 units of the Enyaq Coupé iV a day on the same production line as the Enyaq iV and Octavia. The two Enyaq iV variants are the only models based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) to roll off a European assembly line outside Germany.
By 2030, Skoda plans to have launched at least three more all-electric models below the Enyaq iV in terms of size and price.
Skoda is also working to develop its home country, the Czech Republic, into an electromobility hub; E-components or E-vehicles are to be manufactured at all three Czech Skoda sites in Mladá Boleslav, Kvasiny and Vrchlabí by 2030.
