What have the Škoda ENYAQ iV and Tour de France in common? Well, that’s pretty simple. The Czech carmaker delivers the fully electric ENYAQ iV as the leading car no. 1 or director car at the Tour de France 2020. Is this the 4 wheel e-bike of the future?
Fully all electric Škoda ENYAQ iV in Tour de France
While the cyclists use all the power they have in their bodies to concur this race, the organisers and followers of the Tour still using fossil fuels to transport themselves. But there is some change going on in 2020. Škoda is for the 17th constitutive year official main partner of the Tour de France. For the first time in 2020 there is a fully all electric car joining the cyclists. The Škoda ENYAQ iV is the riding control tower of Tour director Christian Prudhomme. The ENYAQ iV will come in action during several stages. The individual time trial from Lure to La Planche des Belles and the final stage including the grand finish at Champs-Élysées. For the cyclists is a fully electric fleet of cars a great benefit. Cleaner air and a better environment when they ride their clean bikes. This is a good step to create a sustainable and environment friendly race but there is a long way to go.
ENYAQ iV will be available in several different versions, with the battery pack ranging from 55 kWh to 82 kWh and a single charge will take you up to 500 km. The top-of-the-line models will feature, among others, state-of-the-art components and accessories including 20“ alloy wheels, 13“ dashboard display, rear parking sensors, light and rain sensors, built-in massage program for the driver’s seat, the keyless entry system (KESSY), and a phone box with inductive charging and the all-inclusive peak model will also feature the driver alert function with fatigue detection and an electrically-operated boot with a virtual pedal.
