Sketches shed some light on Skoda's Vision X crossover concept
Expect it to land next month in Geneva
Just to clear the air from the off, Skoda's plans involve both electrification and a range of models to support those efforts. So far, we knew about the Vision E and Vision S, but the Czechs just added another letter to the lineup: X.
Skoda Vision X (as in the letter, not the roman for 10) previews a compact "urban" crossover set to debut at this year's Geneva Motor Show.
Although we're not rushing in to comment on the concept's look, Skoda says it will sport the FlexGreen body paint, a panoramic glass roof, 20-inch alloy wheels and a sharp overall design "inspired by traditional Czech glasswork." But the car's kisser is likely to resemble its peers, the Skoda Kodiak and Karoq.
Inside, Mladá Boleslav proposes a free-standing color display serving the infotainment and connectivity setups.
Concept and sketches aside, Skoda - steered by the direction VW Group is heading to - made public its intentions of dropping five all-electric cars by 2025 on top of starting production for plug-in hybrid components in 2019.
Also in 2019, Skoda plans to launch the brand's first electrified automobile - a plug-in hybrid flavor of the Superb sedan, with assembly being handled at the carmaker's Kvasiny plant.
