For interest, in that I don't think either the order pages, nor the dealers are clear on this, the Enyaq does not come with any facility to charge from a 13A domestic as supplied.

We've just had a beautiful Artic Silver 80 delivered with Pod Point 7kW fitted to home. But hope was that next step would be a range testing 250 mile mid summer trip to Scotland. There is a heavy DCC charge cable but that is all.

A call to the dealer led to head scratching but a price was eventually produced to procure a 13A charger as an add on hopefully coming overnight delivery so the trip may still be on.

Worth bearing in mind if you plan a trip to visit someone.

Quoted £225 as a 'special discount'.
Aware this was a 'must have' for us to visit relatives over the border so felt trapped. Pleased on that account that it wasnt above £500.

But is there a route to a better price? or would a generic from non VW/ Skoda do just as well at lower price?

Very interested to hear. Due to pick it up tomorrow.

They are £200 in Argos or a bit less on eBay

This is what Skoda sells as an optional extra according to the Enyaq configurator:

If you got it for £225 then I would say you've done particularly well. Then again, plenty of after-market options available for around the £200 mark (or less).

Under £200 from Argos, Amazon, eBay, Screwfix and probably places like Halfords and other motor factors. It's a bit odd that Skoda don't bundle one but that seems to be the case.
Ordered Aug 2021: Enyaq iV 80 Sportline, Energy Blue, 125kW charging, Assisted Drive Plus, Transport, Heat Pump, Infotainment Plus, Convenience Plus, Comfort Seat Plus.

The £225 offering was not the 'industrial 32A' Skoda branded one showing as an option on the order page at an industrial (!) price, but a VW generic one. Seems solid enough, 5m, and importantly to hand.

Just to get this straight, the Enyaq doesn't come with a cable to charge from a 3 pin home wall socket as standard?

Ordered a 60 back in March, and don't remember seeing this as an option so didn't add it :-(

That's my understanding, but someone who has had their car delivered might be able to shed more light on things.

Quite a few after-market ones available though.
