Default Skoda Vision E Concept


  • The brand-typical design language is constantly developing and evolving
  • Precision and clarity are the fundamental principles of car design at ŠKODA
  • An emotive design, full of character and with features inspired by crystal glass art

Mladá Boleslav, 23 March 2017 – ŠKODA DESIGN emphasises its commitment to a distinct design identity with continuous development of its design language. Harmonious proportions, clean-cut lines, bold contours and crystalline features are combined to create a design that places a focus on precision and clarity. One of the sources of inspiration for ŠKODA’s designers is Czech crystal glass art, which is characterised by outstanding craftsmanship. This yields an expressive, emotionally charged design which harmoniously combines aesthetics and functionality.

“Within just a few years, ŠKODA’s new design language has already yielded a number of sensational design studies which point towards the future of our brand,” said Karl Neuhold, Head of Exterior Design at ŠKODA. “Our objectives are clearly defined and we are now ready to present the next step.”

With harmonious proportions, clear contours, precise lines and clean-cut edges in both the exterior and interior, the ŠKODA DESIGN DNA demonstrates a strikingly clear and particularly distinct style. This DNA is an expression of the timeless elegance and modern functionality that is typical for ŠKODA cars. Equally characteristic are the powerful contours, which set the stage for a sensational interplay between light and shade that conveys dynamism and emotiveness. Crystalline structures can also be seen in headlights, tail lights and other features. Their crystalline, three-dimensional design gives them a high-quality character defined by modern technology and particular finesse.

Czech crystal glass art is internationally renowned and steeped in tradition. It combines classic manufacturing processes with modern aesthetics. Thus ŠKODA DESIGN pays respect to the cultural heritage of the brand’s homeland and pays tribute to the artists who create sculptures of timeless beauty through precision craftsmanship and attention to detail. To a large extent, their ability to produce high-quality, emotive works of art from simple, clear shapes chimes with the fundamental values of the Czech car brand, whose vehicles harmoniously combine aesthetics and functionality.

With this awareness of tradition and heritage, ŠKODA has developed a design language that distinguishes the brand and has already been applied to numerous concept studies. Charting its progress from the ŠKODA VISION D design study in 2011 through to the ŠKODA VISION C (2014) and ŠKODA VISION S (2016) concepts reveals a continuous development that is also reflected in the appearance of the brand’s most recent models and which will also decisively shape design at ŠKODA in future. In the near future, another concept study will enable ŠKODA to underline the constant evolution of the ŠKODA DESIGN.

Could this preview the rumored "Kodiaq Coupe"? The silhouette would certainly fit the bill....

I don't think so. I would say it previewed the Octavia replacement if it hand't been refreshed recently. And it looks to sharp and high end to be the new rapid. So this car's placement in the range is quite a mistery.

Technically, it wouldn't be too early to preview the next generation Octavia, sure it has only be facelifted, but the segment is moving fast, and the transition time concept to production vehicle is longer at VAG than elsewhere, so typically 1,5 - 2 years (not counting the Atlas that took approx. 3278 years), by what time it would be due for a new generation. But this car looks nothing like an Octavia (and IMO the Octavia will have a very conservative and evolutionary approach as it always has, given it's target audience), the greenhouse a bit too lofty and not sloppy enough for a sedan (compare current Octavia and Superb). this is mainly why I suspect a cross over coupe, but just a thought without any source.

I however agree it looks too sophisticated for a Rapid replacement, unless the concept car get's totally toned down for production, which wouldn't be unheard of.

CUV coupe that will be. SO far the skecth looks promissing, but somehow I expect that the general roof line will be added to a standard Kodiaq body and loose the some of the interesting features apart form the usual "production details".

Still, so far this seems to be the most attractive hatchback CUV "coupe" design, and weirdly, given Skodas psoition in the VAG line up, way more attractive and expensive than any VW or Audi SUV/CUV (or even the Lamborghini Urus)
