Skoda has bolstered the line-up of the new Enyaq with a high-spec SportLine trim.
The electric SUV will be Skoda’s first bespoke EV, and goes on sale later this year.
The SportLine trim has been designed for buyers who want the more aggressive styling of the firm’s performance cars, but retaining the low running costs and practicality of an electric SUV.
As such, it gets striking 20-inch alloy wheels, a lowered sports suspension, and black detailing for the front grille, window frames, roof rails and rear bumper diffuser. It also gets body-coloured side skirts and a model-specific front bumper.
Inside, SportLine models get black sports seats with integrated headrests, upholstered in ‘Suedia’ microfibre. Other features include a leather sports steering wheel, black synthetic leather for the dashboard, and carbon-fibre-effect trim pieces.
The SportLine is available on two powertrains, the 80 and 80x. The former has a 198bhp electric motor that powers the rear wheels, and has an 82kWh battery with a 323-mile range. The 80x, meanwhile, uses a 258bhp motor that powers all four wheels and has a range of 311 miles.
Skoda will release the exact pricing and specification for the Enyaq SportLine models closer to launch.
