The second generation of the electric SUV should arrive in 2028 and will use completely new technology. Klaus Zellmer, the chairman of the board of directors of the Škoda car company, revealed to the British motoring magazine Autocar that the successor to the Enyaq will be based on the new SSP concern platform.
By the end of the decade, about 80 percent of all VW Group cars are to use this. For example, the electric successor of the Volkswagen Golf, which will arrive around the same time as the second generation Enyaq, will also receive it. Recall that the current version of the electric SUV, launched in 2020, is based on the MEB platform.
The SSP platform should have an 800V architecture that reportedly allows the battery to be charged from 10 to 80 percent in an average of 12 minutes (the improved Enyaq will go from 10 to 80 percent in 28 minutes under ideal conditions). Of course, we will have to wait for the official numbers and specifications. The Volkswagen Group also promises a reduction in production costs from the new platform.
The new Enyaq, like the current generation, will be produced in Mladá Boleslav, the appearance should then adopt elements of the new Modern Solid design language.
We can therefore expect a certain similarity with last year’s Škoda Vision 7S concept, which introduced this design language to the public. However, the Enyaq will remain a smaller car with a five-seater interior, the Vision 7S will be directly followed by another, up to seven-seater electric SUV. The question remains whether the next Enyaq will again offer two body versions.
