The first all-electric Skoda to wear the brand’s famous vRS badge arrived in showrooms, continuing the UK’s love affair with the vRS badge. The highly anticipated performance Coupe variant of the brand’s award winning Enyaq iV went on sale in 2022.
Design highlights include unique sports front and rear bumpers and gloss black surrounds for the grille, window trim and rear diffuser. Badges, tailgate lettering and the air curtain trim on the front apron are also finished in black, while the rear bumper adds a full-length red reflector – a design feature shared will all other Skoda vRS models. Like all Enyaq Coupé iV models, the vRS is fitted with a full-length glass roof.
The Enyaq Coupé iV vRS comes with black 20-inch Taurus wheels as standard with 21-inch Vision wheels with an anthracite finish available as an option. Both feature aerodynamically optimised plastic Aero trims. Full LED matrix headlights and Crystal Face complete the vRS model’s exterior design.
Inside, the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS features a model-specific Design Selection exclusively reserved for the sporting flagship of the range. In addition to black perforated leather sports seats (heated) with integrated headrests, grey piping and contrast stitching, the vRS features a leather multifunction sports steering wheel complete with vRS badge. Customers can also spec the vRS Lounge interior as standard, which offers microsuede and leather upholstery with lime green stitching and piping. The standard equipment includes carbon effect inserts on the dashboard and door trim and aluminium pedals, plus LED ambient lighting and an electrically operated boot with virtual pedal.
In terms of performance, battery and range, the Enyaq Coupé iV vRS is fitted with an 82kWh (77kWh net) battery pack and has a WLTP driving range of 323 miles.
