All new Skoda Enyaq iV models will be fitted with upgraded DC fast charging as standard, the manufacturer has announced.
Previously, both 60 and 80 models had a maximum charging rate of up to 50kW as standard, but the addition means the 60 will now be able to charge at speeds of up to 120kW and the 80 125kW.
This means the charge time (to 80%) for an Enyaq iV 60 is reduced from 55 minutes to 35 minutes, and for the Enyaq iV 80 from 70 minutes to just 38 minutes.
When fully charged, the Enyaq iV 60 has a WLTP combined range of 255 miles, while the Enyaq iV 80 offers 336 miles.
The 80 SportLine model has a WLTP combined range of 330 miles.
According to Zap-Map, there are currently 4,770 rapid DC public chargers live at 3,060 sites around the UK. There are also more than 1,100 ultra-rapid (100kW+) units now online.
All Enyaq iV models can charge at any rapid charger equipped with an industry standard CCS connection.
