Introduction

What Car? says...

Until recently, buying an electric car required either deep pockets or an acceptance of mediocrity. Thankfully, that’s no longer the case – and the Skoda Enyaq is a shining example of why.

This is a large SUV (about the same size as an Audi Q5) that offers plenty of space for the family, a healthy range between charges and yet doesn’t require you to bank with Coutts to be able to afford it. Indeed, some versions even qualify for a £2500 grant from the Government.

The entry-level version (badged ‘60’) has a 58kWh battery that gives a claimed range roughly on a par with the cheapest versions of the Volkswagen ID.3. Go for the more expensive ‘80’ model and you’ll get a larger 77kWh battery that promises Tesla Model 3 distances between charges.

There are also heaps of clever features designed to take the stress out of everyday life, including an app that allows you to remotely monitor the charge level in the battery, pillow-soft rear headrests, and even a cleaning tool for the charging cable to stop you getting mucky hands.

But the Skoda Enyaq isn’t the only large SUV that you plug in rather than fill up with petrol. Indeed, the Volkswagen ID.4 is actually closely related to it underneath, using the same platform, batteries and electric motors, while the Ford Mustang Mach-E is also a similar size, yet offers more performance.

So, how does the Enyaq compare with those rivals, as well as smaller alternatives including the Kia e-Niro? That’s what we’ll be finding out in this review, so click through to the next page to start reading.
