How the Skoda Enyaq comes to his good CW value-comes

The maximum range of the new Skoda Enyaq IV is more than 520 kilometers. The SUV benefits from a very good aerodynamics in this vehicle class, so Skoda in a recent communication. Thanks to its stalled body, the first purely battery-electric SKODA model on the basis of the modular electrification body (MEB) from the Volkswagen Group reaches excellent air resistance coefficient from CW 0,257.

In addition to a body-optimized body enabled in many areas aerodynamically optimized body clever details: special Aero wheels, an active air management management in the central front air inlet and specially shaped exterior mirrors, which are not placed in the window triangle of the A-column, but on the front doors.

How the Skoda Enyaq comes to his good CW value-comesSkoda

The SKODA Enyaq IV is based as the first production model of the Czech automotive manufacturer on the modular electrification device (MEB) from the Volkswagen Group. The purely battery-electric SUV rolls in the SKODA main plant Mladá Boleslav from the band and is thus produced as so far only MEB model in Europe outside Germany. In conjunction with its 150 kW electric motor, the Enyaq IV 80 comes in the WLTP cycle with a fully charged battery more than 520 kilometers wide.

Active air management controls cooling air supply

At the front of the Enyaq IV is an adjustable cooling roller in the central air intake. Depending on the cooling air requirement of the electric drive, the lithium-ion battery and the air conditioner, the vehicle electronics always opens the cooling roller only as far as necessary. If this rollo is completely closed, this also affects the aerodynamics of the Enyaq IV particularly favorable and the range rises by up to seven kilometers.

The aerodynamically optimized form of the front spoiler directs the air specifically under the vehicle. There it is led along at the disguised underbody, while the air curtains in the front bumper guide the air on the wheel arches along optimally in the direction of the vehicle tail. Since the wheels alone generate around 25 percent of the air resistance, optimized light metal wheels are available for the Enyaq IV aerodynamically.

Exterior mirrors, roof spoilers and rear diffuser reduce air streams behind the vehicle

To a low air resistance coefficient also contributes the reduction of turbulence behind the vehicle. The long-drawn roof profile and the roof spoiler with integrated side finlights increase the output of the vehicle and, together with lateral demolition edges on the rear bumper for a clean circulation of the body. The smooth underbody decreases turbulence and smoothes the airflow under the vehicle.

In addition, the rear diffuser with an integrated spoiler lip in conjunction with the roof spoiler balances the air turbulence behind the Enyaq IV. The outflows around the vehicle also dampen the aerodynamically optimized exterior mirrors, whose shape in addition to the air resistance also lowers the wind noise and directs the air specifically direction rear direction. In order to support this effect, the rearview mirrors are located on the front doors and not in the window triangle of the A-pillar, which is now overflowing.

  1. Good CW value of 0.25, that’s probably a joke. Mercedes Bionic Car, SchlOrbag or Model 3 have a good CW value and do not forget your Hyundai Ioniq Elektro.

  2. I think the really great succeeded …
    Price-performance ratio is ok but not yet top
    Unfortunately, currently not affordable for me

    It will be interesting if prices per km are far below 100, – € …

    Continue so skoda

    It remains exciting

  3. From the article:

    “… with its 150 kW electric motor, the Enyaq IV 80 comes in the WLTP cycle with a fully charged battery [net 77 kWh] more than 520 kilometers wide.”

    Well, why then another H2 car, Maintenance-consuming, with RD. 2 tons of weight and hardly any range in small series (and for subsidized price) to buy and depend on a non-existent, even deserving tank infrastructure, if even now More and more Bevs range from more than 500 km (with appropriate driving)?!

  4. Incidentally, the CW value does not say much without mentioning the reference surface and is not sensible to compare between vehicles. At least you have to be aware that you do not compare the absolute (and crucial) air resistance.

  5. For some articles, I have the feeling that this page finances itself through which certain automakers can place their promotional items here. At 0.25 I would have to resist the laugh. It was about 1999, because I have read on the train to Zwickau, during the first semester of the motor vehicle technology, the book “Hucho – aerodynamics of the automobile” read. That was not new then and belonged to the standard literature.

    A CW value of 0.2 can be described as well. At least one should lie below 0.23, if you want to write to the flags, that you have strained. Rolloos in the front bumper, roof spoiler and fully disguised lower floors should be standard for over 5 years, at least from golf class,. With a BEV close the grill sees itself, as well as flush trim strips and spotlights. None of the measures offered here is new or innovative. How about a chassis that depends deeper at rising speed?

    Only from the CW’s worth talking is a beautiful eye wiper. The aerodynamic performance is now calculated from P = RO / 2 * CW * A * V³. With sufficient front surface, the car can certainly score.

    How to conclude from the formula well is finally time to go to the people for prohibiting faster than 120km / h. More and more prohibitions to demand, rather than promoting innovative solutions today is great in fashion, and always nice to state aids scream.

  6. Puh, for a striking outer from CW = 0,257?
    The Tesla S is now at 0.201. And I’m going on, the A is not much bigger than the Skoda.
