Review

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 e-Niro, and is eligible for a £2500 grant from the Government. 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.

Even the smaller battery ‘60’ version gets plenty of standard luxuries, including dual-zone climate control, 19in alloys, power-folding door mirrors, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, front-seat lumbar adjustment, rear parking sensors, ambient lighting, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, a 13.0in infotainment screen and cruise control. Lounge trim gets you a part faux suede interior with mustard coloured stitching.

The less powerful of the two motors choices packs a respectable 177bhp, all of which is fed to the rear wheels. Performance is nippy enough, with 0-62mph officially taking 8.4 seconds (we tested it hitting 0-60mph in 7.7sec). If you specify the optional fast charger is can charge at up to 100kW and has an official range of 256 miles, which from our experience works out to around 180 miles in the real world.
