Geneva Auto Show 2014 – Skoda Vision C Share Comments Mladá Boleslav, 27 February 2014 – As a part of the most comprehensive model campaign in the brand’s history, SKODA is renewing and expanding its model range. The design language of the dynamic and elegant five-door coupé ‘SKODA VisionC’ introduces the next evolutionary step in SKODA design: The design is becoming more expressive, dynamic and emotional and underpins the dawn of the brand. At the same time the five-door Coupé concept demonstrates the possibilities in innovative and emotional chassis design. For more than 100 years, SKODA has been manufacturing cars with high demands on design. SKODA is once again emphasising the traditional brand’s expertise in design and engineering through the ‘SKODA VisionC’ design concept. “We are signalling the next stage in the evolution of SKODA’s design language with ‘SKODA VisionC’, and thus highlighting the dawn of the brand. The vehicle demonstrates the company’s outstanding design and engineering expertise, and underpins the dynamism and value of one of the world’s longest-established automotive companies.” says Prof. Dr. h.c. Windried Vahland, SKODA CEO. As a five-door Coupé, the ‘SKODA VisionC’ features a new expressive, dynamic and emotional design language. The interplay of soft, slightly contoured, concave and convex surfaces, as well as sharp, precise lines creates an immediate impact. The surfaces and proportions demonstrate clear arrangement and a striking interaction of light and shadow. The front has an air of confidence and energy, and the tailgate adds an element of surprise, accentuated with a radical conclusion. In addition to its creative ambition, the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ impressively demonstrates the ŠKODA engineers’ concept of ingenuity; design, engineering, space, functionality and the emotional coupé shape combine in compelling unity. The ‘SKODA VisionC’ provides plenty of room for four people and their luggage. The large boot and excellent loading capacity are characteristic of SKODA. Modern MQB technology, approaching series-produced drive systems, low weight and optimized aerodynamics also demonstrate the high potential of responsible individual mobility. Under the bonnet, we find a CNG/petrol bivalent 1.4 TSI/81 kW turbo engine. On natural gas, the vehicle consumes a mere 3.4 kg or 5.1 m3 CNG per 100 kilometre, equating to CO2 emissions of only 91 g/km. ŠKODA has made a huge leap in demonstrating that even attractive mid-class vehicles can meet the stringent EU2020 CO2 emissions standard with today’s conventional drive technology.
