Škoda’s new Enyaq electric vehicle (EV) is being made available with a new Lease&Care finance option which includes servicing roadside assistance and tyres.
The first of the Czech brand’s models to sit on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform, the all-electric SUV is officially launched by UK retailers today (June 18).
And the model not only adopts a new specification and options model for customers, but the option of the new Lease&Care package.
Developed by Škoda Financial Services specifically for electric car buyers it is a personal lease that includes built-in aftersales packages in one monthly payment and comes in Small, Medium and Large variants.
Small covers essential servicing – including routine manufacturer servicing, brake fluid changes, as well as dust and pollen filters – and access to 24/7 breakdown, recovery and glass care.
Medium adds routine maintenance items, including brake, suspension and cooling system repairs, electric system maintenance, and all fluid top-ups.
Large includes tyre replacement and wheel alignment (due to fair wear and tear), puncture repair, geometry checks and wheel balancing.
The new buying process adopted for the Enyaq, meanwhile, sees customers choose from the new EV’s 62kWh and 82kWh battery packs – the latter of which claims a 333-mile range under WLTP testing – before selecting an interior design personalising their vehicle using equipment packs and individual options.
There are six design packages, including: Loft, Lodge, Lounge, Suite, ecoSuite and SportLine.
Prices for the Enyaq start from £31,995, including the Government’s £2,500 plug-in car grant (PiCG).
The Enyaq is currently Škoda’s only pure EV.
The Czech brand axed its compact Citigo EV in September last year after suspending sales as it struggled to match demand for the affordable supermini.
Earlier this month Seat confirmed that it had followed the Czech brand’s lead, cutting the near-identical Seat Mii EV from its range as it refocussed its attentions on its new electrified product lines.
