SKODA AUTO is performing a software update for existing ENYAQ iV vehicles, as part of a free service campaign. The software version ME3 offers a variety of optimizations: it ensures an increased real drive range by optimizing battery management and also includes functions for the displays, the infotainment system and the SKODA Connect online services.

Local SKODA partners will contact the relevant owners of an ENYAQ iV and ask them to arrange a free service appointment at the workshop. Installing the ME3 software version takes around five hours. In addition to all the current improvements, once this is done the SKODA ENYAQ iV will be ready to have most future updates installed over the air, without the need to come in for another visit to the workshop.

In terms of battery and charging, the software offers battery care mode in which the battery is only charged to a maximum of 80 percent during the next charging process. The maximum charging rate increases to 120 kW for vehicles featuring the 62-kWh battery and 135 kW for models with the large 82-kWh battery. With improved thermal management of the battery, the real drive range increases for the SKODA ENYAQ iV family. The charging and range graphics in the infotainment system also include a display of the destination and any required charging stops.

There have been improvements to the Digital Cockpit and the head-up display, including displays of the current battery charge level. In addition, SKODA Connect online services have been expanded or refined for the use.
