The Skoda VisionS is a design proposal for a future Skoda SUV.
In addition to showcasing an all new vehicle for the company, the
VisionS also shows off a new iteration of Skoda styling, one which
is a little more angular and aggressive.
Skoda say the VisionS' styling was inspired by Czech Cubism and traditional
Bohemian crystal art, which I think clears that up for everyone. In
less pretentious language, that means its got sharp, clean lines and
lots of angles.
Based on the Volkswagen Group's Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB), this
is Skoda's first vehicle to feature six seats arranged across three
Powering the Skoda VisionS is plug-in rechargable hybrid drivetrain
which consists of a 156 horsepower, 1.4 litre turbocharged gasoline
engine working in conjunction with a 400 kW electric motor integrated
within the six-speed DSG transmision to send power to the fron wheels.
A second, more powerful (85 kW) electric motor transfers its power
to the rear wheels. This motor operates independently of the front
axle drive, meaning the concept has a smart four-wheel drive system,
which requires no mechanical coupling.
The three drive systems cooperate in a highly flexible manner: The
driver can choose between several modes of operation - from purely
electric drive to internal combustion / recharge modes. The lithium-ion
battery with a 12.4kWh capacity is positioned towards the middle of
the vehicle ahead of the rear axle.
