The head of technical development for ŠKODA, Christian Strube, recalled that the ŠKODA ENYAQ iV is perfectly suited for daily uses as well as long distance driving with its fast charging and an autonomy of up to 510km (WLTP). “The many possible combinations, for example in terms of battery sizes and power, make the modular electric car platform a perfect technical basis for our fully electric vehicles”, he added.
