What a time to be a Skoda dealer! The Skoda Enyaq iV has completed a hat-trick of awards with the Company Car of the Year accolade from Business Car Magazine, adding to the top honours already presented by Parkers New Car Awards and Car Dealer Awards.
The Business Car Mag award is highly significant as it’s the first time a fully-electric car has been awarded its highest honour. The all-electric family SUV has been marketed as providing value and a long driving range: it delivers a WLTP driving range of up to 331 miles and can be rapid DC charged to 80% in as little as 38 minutes.
As in previous years, all shortlisted cars were assessed by a judging panel that took into account running costs, value for money and practicality. After the numbers were crunched, the Enyaq iV was a clear winner.
Martyn Collins, Editor of Business Car Magazine said: “The Enyaq iV is an EV that covers all the bases, impressing our judges with attributes such as a good electric driving range, quick charging capability, strong practicality, and an extensive list of standard equipment.”
“The first ever EV to win our overall top prize, the Enyaq is a car with the potential to be a real gamechanger for its maker in the fleet market, as well as being the obvious choice for those seeking a complete electric family car.” he added.
With prices starting at around £32,000 it is clear that the Enyaq iV is well and truly positioning Skoda as a credible contender for the company car sector.
