The changes apply to all models built from January 2022. The Enyaq iV 60 recieves a charging speed boost to 120kW (from 100kW), while the Enyaq iV 80 can now charge at 135kW (up from 125kW).

Customers who opt for all-wheel drive models (Enyaq iV 80x) will also benefit from a new ‘Traction mode’. Activated via the driving mode screen on the infotainment system, Traction mode increases ASR (Anti-Slip regulation) and provides optimal drive distribution between the front and rear axle.

The new Battery Care Mode, which is controlled via the infotainment screen, has been designed to set the optimal charging settings for extending the life of the battery. When activated the next charging process will charge to a maximum of 80%.

The graphic displays of the infotainment system have also been updated to deliver even more information. Drivers using the navigation system will be able to see an estimated battery level on arrival when a destination is programmed. Skoda says this is particularly useful for planning charging stops. In addition, the charging screen has been redesigned to show more information plus extra functionality including AC charge options and predefined charging and preconditioning for the cabin. 

Customers choosing the Assisted Drive Package Plus with Travel Assist benefit from additional features, too. These include Narrow Lane Assist where the car recognises temporary yellow lines, barriers and cars in the next lane and guides the car through narrowed spaces. In addition, the steering wheel travel assist button will now allow drivers to toggle between travel assist modes as well as activating and de-activating the system. When the vehicle is started again the last mode used will be active.
