The future decoded for Škoda

Jon Lawson

The all-electric Vision iV concept study offers a look ahead at Škoda’s electric future. By introducing its first vehicle to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform, the Czech brand is taking the next step in its journey towards eMobility. 

The four door coupé features all wheel drive and two electric motors outputting 225 kW (306 PS).

The vehicle follows in the footsteps of the rejuvenated dune buggy and Transporter on the same platform. 

The concept car features a horizontal light strip that spans the entire width of the vehicle and connects the Matrix LED headlights. The doors do not have any handles – a touch will open them automatically. Classic wing mirrors have been replaced by cameras providing a 180 degree view which is relayed in the rear-view mirror. 

It is powered by two electric motors – one on the front axle and one on the rear axle. The car has a maximum range of 500 km in the WLTP cycle and the battery can be charged to 80% in 30 minutes. Through the use of laser scanners, radar sensors and cameras, it can in certain situations drive autonomously and park by itself. Comprehensive connectivity features allow for direct communication with other road users, cars and the infrastructure.
