the winner of 2021 is Skoda Konyaq

Škoda Enyaq iV wins the 2021 edition of the coveted “Volante d’oro” automotive award. Newspaper readers “Auto Bild” and “Bild am Sonntag” initially selected the Škoda SUV among the three finalists in the electrified sport utility category. Later, after the test drives at the Lausitzring, Enyaq iV also won over the jury of experts.

In this edition of the “Volante d’oro”, which rewards the best innovations in the automotive field over the past twelve months, the jury was able to choose the vehicles to be awarded from a selection of 70 models, for the first time distinguished between combustion and electric engines – for example, via the two categories SUV and electric SUV. In total, twelve prizes were awarded.

Škoda’s first 100% electric SUV thus qualified for dynamic tests at the Lausitzring circuit last October. Judges made their own judgments on each new model based on several criteria, including ride handling, spaciousness and total visibility. The jury concluded that the Enyaq iV offers the best all-round package in the electric SUV segment.

The CEO of Škoda Auto, Thomas Schafer, comments on the success of the Czech car: “The 2021 Golden Volante at Enyaq iV demonstrates that our first 100% electric SUV it has been able to win over both the readers and the jury of experts. From the whole group I would like to thank for the prestigious award. One thing is clear: Enyaq iV is just the beginning of a new chapter that will very soon continue with new electric models ”.
