Škoda’s first fully electric vehicle to arrive in New Zealand, the Škoda Enyaq, raised eyebrows and turned heads at its launch back in March. The vehicle proved to be the perfect blend of Volkswagen Audi Group engineering and sophistication with Škoda’s own charm and character.

At the time, Stuff’s Matthew Hansen said in his article, “Having been sceptical of its styling upon its initial release, I was surprised with how much presence it has in person. See it in the flesh first before you cast judgement… Skodas are always a worthwhile shout for anyone wanting to grace their driveway with ‘something a bit different’. Against a tsunami of Model Ys, there’s little doubt the Enyaq is just that.”

The models specifically chosen for the New Zealand market were high-end SportLine spec, but while the existing Škoda community and those new to the brand both showed keen interest, it was a shame that the vehicle’s entry price point of $92,990 plus on-road costs was above the government’s Clean Car threshold of $80,000.

Today, 3 June 2023, everything changes.

Earlier this week, Škoda New Zealand held an urgent meeting with the dealer network to relay some exciting news. Their executives have been in high level talks with Škoda Global and, given New Zealand’s unique position, have successfully managed to negotiate a reduced price for the initial supply of Enyaq models to New Zealand.

These ‘launch edition’ vehicles will be spec’d exactly as promised in original communications, but will now be priced from just $79,990 driveaway. This will make the Enyaq SportLine 80 model eligible for the full (post 1 July) EV rebate of $7,015, giving an effective price of just $72,975 after the rebate.

This is incredible news for Škoda customers, particularly those who had paid their deposit on a new model at the $92,990 price, now to be told the final price will be over $20,000 less when their vehicle arrives.

What’s important to note is that this is a one-off, unprecedented opportunity for the New Zealand market that the factory have agreed to based on our unique position. The price will be limited to the first 600 Enyaq vehicles to arrive in New Zealand.

The price of $79,990 drive away – effectively $72,975 following the rebate – for the Enyaq SportLine 80 is an incredible one when compared with competitor vehicles, and we still believe that this is a $92,990 vehicle.

With that in mind, and with the surge of interest that it would be advised to start the ball rolling on your enquiry. Our team at Miles Škoda are ready and waiting to assist.
