The RWD Enyaq L&K accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 6.7 seconds, which is around two seconds quicker than the Enyaq 80. It can go as fast as 180km/h. Meanwhile, the AWD L&K model speeds from 0 to 100km/h in 6.6 seconds. The Enyaq L&K can be charged from 10% to 80% in less than 30 minutes, thanks to an improved charging curve for the battery. Additionally, Skoda has released software that adds a new pre-heating feature for the battery on the L&K versions. According to the automaker, this software will be accessible on all Enyaq variants soon.

There are two options available for the pre-heating function: manual and automatic. The pre-heating feature aids in bringing the battery up to the ideal temperature before charging starts. In the first manual option, the battery pre-heats when the driver taps a button on the central infotainment screen, whereas in an automatic mode, the vehicle operates autonomously while en route to a fast-charging station using information from the navigation system.
