  1. What’s going on in the VW Group?
    The Enyaq will be released on the media before the ID.4 was presented?
    Is this a mistake, a Czech impudence or upper-guided corporate strategy .. ?

    I can already think where the differences in the parallel model ID.4 and Q4 will be: higher charging power, slightly higher top speed, noble equipment – and the smallest battery is missing but maybe one is located above, which reaches just under the 600 km.
    And of course noble equipment – a bit more climate at the extras.

    Everything of course conform. But somehow Audi / VW have to justify the higher prices.

    At 35.000 Euro before promotion you have to get to.

    To Enyaq. If he really comes to the market with the data and the lactic start prices then it is the absolute price-power hammer. This is cheaper than many small cars of the competition and that can not take 1200kg on the hook and have a tiny trunk and behind the children can only sit stacked.

    VW already draws the price card pretty early to bring the mass sales. What was the goal: BEV world market leader.

  2. I think the skoda reacts here to lose the connection.
    There are already 2 models from China with identical performance data to Europe, ByD + Aiways.
    And that probably thought earlier than the European corporations …

    Thus clear announcement, Skoda wants to mix there ..
    VW himself could do it, they just do not want. This is still burners on the Group area for the next 2 years … you just want to sell ..

    Well, we’ll see what the creators think about the Chinese as long as possible asu brakes ..

    It remains exciting

  3. If Skoda is similar to the room offer etc. As with the burners, the ne exciting thing. The form also does not look up and in the design Skoda has not been a handle in the toilet last years.
    Of course, it would be exciting where the version with the big battery lands. 35.000 € are probably the small battery. But even that is already good for the vehicle size.

  4. Skoda presses. Great. A car for the people. Is that a slap for VW or strategy? Everything is possible and no one knows exactly. But attention was today this is just a … a la vw stop. Say about it and maybe you deliver something then. As long as many burners are produced as possible and demands state aid for it. Does not go up somehow.
    Forward Skoda. thumbs up.

  5. Will probably be a giant disappointment, barely different from Kodiaq or Tiguan. The Vision IV is the mass of the hammer, I would have bought immediately. But this looks like boring and discouraged unity porridge. The CEO of Skoda even said that external of the IV was 95% production. If that was not lied?

  6. I ordered a Hyundai Kona E.
    What is presented by Skoda / VW, everything sounds very tempting. But we are honest: already drives something from the new technology from VW outside.?
    The cancellation and want to give their customers until their technology finally works (software) and Merge not as you can run away from customers for competition, already the 2. Or 3. Generation E-car in the market.
