Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2
The 60 version of the Skoda Enyaq is very well priced compared with similar-sized electric rivals. It even qualifies for a £2500 grant from the Government – something you won’t get on any Ford Mustang Mach-E or VW ID.4. Indeed, if you want an electric SUV for less money, you’ll need to go for something a lot smaller (think Hyundai Kona Electric, Kia e-Niro or MG ZS EV).
Despite having a larger battery, the 80 version is less compelling, partly because it’s more expensive to start with but also because it doesn’t qualify for any government support. It’s still cheaper than equivalent versions of the ID.4 and Mach-E, though.
Equipment, options and extras
Even the smaller battery 60 version gets a few good luxuries as standard, including dual-zone climate control, 19in alloys, power-folding door mirrors, auto-dimming mirrors and cruise control. Some of the interior packages include leather seats or attractive cloth alternatives for little extra outlay.
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 we mentioned earlier.
Whichever battery you choose, we’d recommend adding a few option packs, with the Family Package Plus, Climate Package Plus, Transport Package and Parking Package Basic the most recommendable.
