ŠKODA confirms the name of its first all-electric SUV due late 2020.
With its first all-electric SUV, ŠKODA is establishing a new naming convention that combines the ‘E’ in reference to electromobility and the ‘Q’ characterising the final letter of ŠKODA’s successful SUV family.
The name of the new ŠKODA ENYAQ is derived from the Irish name ‘Enya’, meaning ‘source of life’. Enya itself comes from the Irish Gaelic word ‘Eithne’, meaning ‘essence’, ‘spirit’ or ‘principle’. These different meanings allow different perspectives on the name of ŠKODA’s new SUV. The ‘source of life’ symbolises the start of a new era as the car manufacturer enters into electromobility.
ENYAQ follows ŠKODA’s well-known SUV names
In line with ŠKODA’s successful SUV models, KODIAQ, KAROQ and KAMIQ, the ‘Q’ at the end creates a clear connection to the brand’s SUV line-up.
The ŠKODA ENYAQ is the Czech brand’s first series-production vehicle based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electrification Toolkit (MEB) and the next of the series of more than ten electric models that will be launched under the ŠKODA iV sub-brand by the end of 2022. By 2025, ŠKODA expects all-electric vehicles and models with plug-in hybrid drives to account for 25% of sales.
