After less than two years on the market, Skoda‘s electric SUV has been revised. This week, we’ll examine the 2024 Skoda Enyaq RS in greater depth than last week’s standard models. With increased performance, greater range, and faster DC charging, early adopters of the Enyaq Coupe RS might be feeling a twinge of envy.
Skoda Enyaq RS 2024 Features
It’s encouraging to see automakers pushing upgrades at increased frequency in the ever-evolving landscape of electric vehicles (though it may be mildly frustrating for early birds). The 2024 Enyaq RS has an increase of 40 horsepower over its forerunner thanks to the increased output of its twin motors. With this extra muscle, it now takes just 5.5 seconds to go from 0 to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour).
Even better, the increased strength does not reduce the operating range. The standard RS has an impressive range of 336 miles (541 km) thanks to its retuned electric motors and upgraded power management software. For those who prefer a coupe, a full charge will get them an extra 16 miles (26 km), for a grand total of 340 miles (547 km).
Skoda is increasing the charging power from 135 kW to 175 kW. The previous 30-minute charge time for a battery that was upgraded cuts that down to just 28 minutes. That’s plenty of time to get a cup of coffee and ponder the fates of those who made the decision to purchase the older model.
The graphics in the digital instrument cluster, the head-up display, and the infotainment system have all been updated for 2024. The Enyaq’s Laurin & Klement package added a touch of class earlier in 2023. And for those who are already over the moon, here’s some more good news: Skoda has begun teasing a second-generation Enyaq for 2025, complete with a more streamlined sibling that features an enticing sloping roofline.
