Lease a Škoda EV and you can use a petrol vehicle for long journeys

Škoda's electric vehicle lease and maintenance packages are available, with an optional annual seven days petrol engine allowance.


Škoda Auto, the vehicle manufacturer in the Czech Republic which builds its models similar to Volkswagen Group vehicles, will give you an internal-combustion petrol-powered vehicle for longer journeys if you lease an electric car.

The company has released its first purpose-built five-seat electric SUV, the Enyaq iV, which uses the same powertrain and technologies as the Volkswagen ID.4. The Enyaq iV is in the same category as the Ford Mustang Mach-E, electric Volvo XC40, Kia e-Niro and imminently the Tesla Model Y (May at the earliest).

Initially Škoda’s Enyaq iV will be available in two versions. The Enyaq iV 60 has a 62-kilowatt-hour battery and the more expensive Enyaq iV 80 has an 82-kilowatt-hour battery, while both feature single rear-mounted electric motors for rear-wheel drive. The range of distance travelled on the battery is between 412 kilometres and 697 kilometres. Both cars charge at a maximum rate of 50 kilowatts unless you specify 100 kilowatts and 125-kilowatt charging for the 60 and 80, respectively.

All-wheel drive Enyaqs with a second electric motor for the front axle are being built, together with a quicker vRS version, Top Gear reported.

As with any new type of product, Škoda is offering a leasing package for the electric vehicle to ease the mind of would-be buyers who have always used internal-combustion petrol-powered vehicles.

“Making the switch to an electric car has never been simpler thanks to Škoda Lease&Care. With a Lease&Care plan, everything is covered by one simple monthly payment with servicing and car costs also included,” Škoda states on its UK website.

There are three different Lease&Care packages.

“All our care packages are available with an optional annual seven days allowance from VWFS Rent-a-Car which can be added to your monthly payment. This gives you access to a range of vehicles for added peace of mind on those longer journeys or if you just need something a bit different for the weekend,” Škoda said.
