Skoda has unveiled the Enyaq Coupe, the second model from the Czech brand based on the Volkswagen Group MEB electric platform.
The model follows the more traditionally styled Enyaq and is a break from conservative design for Skoda with its curving roofline. Skoda currently targets more practical segments such as SUVs, hatchback and wagons.
Skoda's CEO, Thomas Schaefer, said during the launch of the car, that the new EV combines "emotion and efficiency," adding that the crossover offered "Skoda-typical generous amounts of space in an elegant body."
Skoda is targeting a more affluent market with the Enyaq Coupe than that of the standard Enyaq by offering different styling detailing and unique trim lines.
The model will become Skoda's first electric car to be sold with the brand's sport RS (vRS in the UK) offered on the Octavia and Kodiaq combustion engine models. An RS version of the standard Enyaq is due later this year.
The greater power of the RS will allow it to accelerate to 100 kph (62 mph) in 6.5 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 111mph.
The brand says it is ready to move upmarket after years of targeting more cost-conscious customers.
"The image of the brand has improved across Europe, we are not the brand of the old jokes," Martin Jahn, the brand's sales and marketing boss, said during an online interview with journalists.
"This will be most expensive model in our lineup, but even for this price tag the car is still good value for money."
Skoda is yet to release prices, but the model will cost more the standard Enyaq when it goes on sale in February, indicating a start price of 42,000 pounds in the UK (50,500 euros/$56,300).
