Skoda Auto delivered the world’s first Enyaq iV to a young family in Norway. With its first fully electric SUV, the brand has taken the largest step yet in implementing its electric mobility strategy. After the start of deliveries to the Scandinavian markets, Western and Central Europe will follow in May and June 2021.
In Norway, the first Enyaq iV was delivered to customers, which was acquired by the Espelund Talsæte family from a koda car dealer in Moss.
Martin Jan, Sales and Marketing Board Member, says: “Delivering the first Enyaq IV to the customer is an extraordinary moment for us. With this model, we begin the era of electric mobility at Skoda Auto. After the launch in Scandinavia, deliveries will start in Western and Central Europe in the next few weeks. I am glad that the first SUV is All-electric was able to impress a young Norwegian family, and have a safe ride and a lot of fun with the new Enyaq iV. “
Thomas Miner, director of the Norwegian importer of koda cars, adds: “It feels great to be able to deliver the first car to proud new owners. We are sure many happy Enyaq iV owners will join them in the coming weeks and months. 2021 will be a record year for the Norwegian importer of koda cars and it will mark a big step for the brand towards green mobility. “.
The car’s buyer, Silje Talsæte and her partner Øyvind Espelund, have been thinking about switching to a purely electric car for a long time. They did not find alternatives that would meet the standards of the family car and the necessary range in an adequate price category, and only then came across the koda Enyaq iV model. At the time of ordering, they almost only knew about this model and did not hide a positive surprise when seizing the car: “I’ve heard the Enyaq iV is big, but it’s actually bigger. I was particularly impressed with the trunk, I was almost shocked when I opened the fifth door,” Øyvind Espelund says.
As the first serial model of the Skoda brand, it is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Electric Vehicle Modular Platform (MEB). This SUV received the highest five-star rating in the Euro NCAP test and the best Euro NCAP test result in the passenger protection rating. The Enyaq iV also recently received a Red Dot award for its design.
