We’re happy to announce more information on the all-new Škoda Enyaq. Just around the corner, this significant milestone for our brand marks the future of our efforts in electrified mobility.
“With the launch of Enyaq in 2023, we are aligning Škoda with our customers’ evolving needs and expectations – offering exceptional styling and an enhanced user experience. We know that Kiwi drivers, who are adventurers like us and demand smart technologies and functionality when it comes to their vehicles, will absolutely love the new Enyaq. It has all the comfort, space, and high specs our customers have come to expect, coupled with the benefits that come with an electric vehicle.”
Enyaq iV launch models
The Enyaq will launch in both SUV and Coupé with specifications and pricing to be confirmed in February 2023. Special events will be held across the country on the 25th of February 2023 where Škoda dealerships will simultaneously launch the Enyaq to their regions, with pre-production SUVs onsite. After launch Škoda will open online pre-sales for customers, alongside “Explore More” Test Drive Experiences for customers to experience the Enyaq SUV for themselves.
“Driving a Škoda is, and should always be, an adventure. “It’s the perfect vehicle for Kiwis as it’s as home on the highway or city street as it is on a remote gravel road. Its arrival is one step forward in our future sustainable development and the true start of our green fuel era.”

New Zealand drivers will be able to say kia ora to the dynamic and sporty Enyaq when it lands on our shores in 2023.

Škoda has gained momentum in New Zealand over the past five years, winning the NZ Police tender in 2020 and growing its market share through an increasingly loyal customer base. During the transition phase to eMobility, the brand is strengthening its portfolio of highly efficient combustion engines, with new-generation Superb and Kodiaq models driving off the production line in the next two years.
About the Enyaq:
For SUV lovers who want to join the electric revolution, the Enyaq will feel comfortingly familiar in the tradition of Škoda’s SUVs with striking styling, spacious interior, high-quality materials and the latest technology built on a modular platform specially developed for electric cars.
The Enyaq Coupé brings even more emotion, sportiness and elegance to the Enyaq family, combining high functionality with emotive looks that are further accentuated by the dark tinted panoramic glass roof, which is a standard feature for the Coupé.
The vehicle echoes Skoda’s advocacy of sustainability. The company is committed to using electricity from renewable sources and from 2030, the Czech production facilities will be manufacturing cars with net-zero emissions. The Vrchlabi plant in Czech Republic is already leading the way, having been carbon neutral since 2020.
Each Enyaq iV uses 13 kilos of recycled plastics, while the recycling rate for steel used in the body is 40% and aluminium 60%.
