The VisionS carries the brand’s new design language into the SUV segment. It’s based on Volkswagen Group’s modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform and is the first ŠKODA with six seats across three rows.
Another highlight of the concept car is its plug-in hybrid powertrain: with 165kW (225PS) of power, the show car accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 7.4 seconds and has a top speed of almost 124mph. Just 1.9 litres of petrol is all the car needs to travel 124 miles; it can go up to 30 miles on electric alone and will travel up to 621 miles with both systems.
The 1.4 TSI engine works alongside an e-motor that provides 40kW of continuous power and 220Nm peak torque. It is integrated into the six-speed DSG, which directs power to the front wheels. A second electric motor with up to 85kW of power and 270Nm of torque drives the rear axle. This works independently, meaning the show car has a smart four-wheel drive that requires no mechanical coupling. The three engines allow drivers to choose between several modes of operation, from purely electric to charge modes, always with the goal of maximum efficiency.
