Chandigarh, (Aditi) – ŠKODA has set two official world ice drift records with the ENYAQ RS iV SUV, the brand’s second all-electric sporting model.

Meaden’s drift beat the previous record of 6.231 km, set in China in 2022. In breaking the first record, Meaden and the ŠKODAENYAQ RS iV SUV set a second record for the ‘Longest Continuous Vehicle Drift on Ice (electric car)’.

The ENYAQ RS iV SUV held its own under demanding conditions and powered round the drift circle 39 times during the 15 minutes and 58 seconds of its record-breaking run. It achieved a top speed of 48.69 km/h and was travelling at 31.64 km/h at its slowest point.
