Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

It might look like the most compelling version of the Skoda Enyaq is the 80, with its larger battery. However, its price puts it very close to our Car of the Year, the Kia EV6, which is loaded with kit and can charge at a much faster rate. 

The Enyaq is still cheaper than the equivalent Ford Mustang Mach-E or Volkswagen ID 4, though. Resale values are predicted to be strong and the Enyaq is exceptionally cheap to run if you’re a company car driver because it's in a very low benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax band.

The 80 adds steering-wheel-mounted paddles for manually adjusting the level of regenerative braking on the move, along with a heated steering wheel and the extra parking aids. 

Whichever battery you choose, we’d recommend adding the Transport Package.

Reliability

Skoda came 13th out of 32 brands in the 2022 What Car? Reliability Survey overall manufacturer league table, ahead of Volkswagen, Ford and Nissan, but behind Hyundai and Kia. The Enyaq itself is too new to have featured yet.  

Every Enyaq comes with a three-year/60,000 mile warranty on most parts, but the battery is covered for up to eight years with a 100,000-mile cap. If the battery falls below 70% of its original useable capacity in that time, Skoda will pay to put it right.

Overview

The Skoda Enyaq is practical, good to drive, smart inside and well-equipped. Perhaps most impressive of all, though, is the value it offers; the 60 version is priced in line with smaller alternatives, including the Kia Niro EV. The 60 has a fine range for everyday journeys plus the odd family holiday, but we'd advise going for the 80 if you regularly drive long distances.

  • Well priced
  • Extremely practical
  • Comfortable and easy to drive
  • So-so performance by electric car standards
  • A Volkswagen ID.3 is more fun to drive
  • Infotainment isn’t as responsive as rival systems
