The name of the new E-SUV is derived from the Irish word, Enya ‘. This means as much as, source of life ‘.

  1. The data sounds very good (Broallem the 500km from 83kWh for a SUV). Sounds like the MEB Platform really lead to the VW Group can lead to attack on Tesla. Of course, the price would be interesting. If the box also again 80.000 € costs, you have not won a flowerpot. But would not be the prize segment of Skoda.

  2. In Norway there are already more accurate information about the vehicle and you have been reserved since 2019.
    The current data is very inaccurate – the Norwegian considerably more accurate.
    There is also a variant with pure rear wheel drive as well as an AHK with 1600 kg trailer load.
    The prices should be at 35.000 Euro start (but not with the fat battery)

    So just as a guideline
