VRS, the most powerful and sporty version of the Skoda Enyaq IV can now be reserved in Spain.
Since the launch of the Skoda Enyaq IV in 2021, this model has been postulated as one of the most interesting 100% electric SUV options on the market.
Last October the VRS version of the Skoda Enyaq iV was presented, the sportiest and most powerful version of this electric SUV.
This VRS version is designed for those who want extra exclusivity, sportiness and power, but it also means that it is generally the most expensive version.
Dealers all over Spain have already started taking reservations for the Skoda Enyaq iV VRS and that has meant knowing its starting price.
The Skoda Enyaq iV VRS has a starting price of 64,600 euros in Spain, a price that means that unlike the other versions, this one is not eligible for the Moves III Plan.
Is it worth paying 64,600 euros for the Skoda Enyaq iV VRS?
To find out if it is worth opting for the most powerful and sporty version of the Skoda Enyaq iV, it is best to know what it has to offer compared to the other variants.
Skoda has taken advantage of this electric era to raise the bar on the quality of its materials and finishes, and in many cases we have even seen how this Enyaq iV surpasses its “brother” Volkswagen ID.4.
The VRS version is equipped with two electric motors with a total power output of 299 hp (220 kW), allowing it to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds, a more than excellent figure for an SUV.
The battery is the same size as the other versions, i.e. 82 kWh (77 kWh usable), which means that in this respect it loses some range, being just over 500 kilometres under the WLTP cycle.
The maximum charging power remains at 135 kW, which makes it possible to charge the battery from 10% to 80% in just 36 minutes.
As you can see, at the moment the big difference (apart from aesthetic details such as the 21″ wheels) is in the dual electric motor and its higher power output, but there are also a host of extras that come as standard on the VRS version such as LED headlights, keyless entry and start, three-zone climate control, heated front seats, digital instrumentation, wireless connectivity for mobile devices and a multimedia system with a high-resolution touch panel.
Surprisingly, as an optional extra, there is the option of heat pump heating or a panoramic sliding roof, something that we think would have been interesting to equip as standard and within the price.
Exclusivity and power are expensive, but perhaps rationally the most powerful versions are not the best options, firstly because of the extra cost involved and then because a very important aspect of electric cars such as their range is usually diminished by the increase in power.
