Škoda Enyaq Long term report:

It’s time to say goodbye to our Skoda Enyaq, a car we’ve been driving the length and breadth of the country in over the past six months.

Our Enyaq 80 came with a list price of £42,925 along with a chunky £4,835 of options that lifted the price to £47,460. The options included Climate Package Plus (£325), Moon White Metallic paint (£660) and Comfort Seat package (our backsides say thank you Škoda – this one is money well spent if you regularly drive long journeys). Our car also came with what Škoda calls ‘Suite Design Selection (£1,380), which is one of the brand’s highest interior trim spec levels. It features leather seats, piano black stripes on the dashboard and a posh-looking faux leather dashboard with stitching.

The Enyaq features a 77 kWh battery and an official range of 330 miles. Over the course of the last six months, efficiency has been a real strong point. It hovered around the high threes to fours in miles per kWh over the Summer which equates to an empty-to-full range of around 290 miles in those milder conditions, but we regularly had 310 miles out of a full charge. For the first time ever, Ginny managed to do her regular drive to Cornwall on a single charge. Which made her very happy.

Our car came with the optional heat pump fitted – which is just over £1,000 – and our advice is to go for it as it’s also helped keep the range up in winter. Current average efficiency has obviously dropped off and we’re currently averaging more like 3 miles per kWh, which equates to around 240 miles on a full charge.

Surprisingly, one of the things we’ve loved most about the Enyaq is the infotainment system. Despite some early glitches when trying switch users, it has been flawless. It can go on a bit of a go slow at times and the speed at which the system ‘wakes up’ and connects to CarPlay isn’t great. But compared to other workings of this VW Group tech, it’s pretty good. Hats off to Skoda for that one.

Will we be sad to see the Enyaq go? Very much so. It’s been a brilliant all-rounder that has delivered on every level. Efficient, comfortable and easy to live with, it has all the qualities most family car buyers would look for. Farewell, friend!
