Skoda has released the digital wraps of the vehicle, which demonstrates the way it intends to utilize the Volkswagen group’s MEB platform for its vehicles in the near future. Its Skoda Vision 7S concept previews a seven-seat electric crossover that places a great deal of focus on the interior space, technology and modularity. However, it also showcases the brand’s new design direction.
The company is calling its new corporate design”the Tech Deck Face, and although it’s completely different from the current design language however, the designers have been able to keep the character of the brand, so it’s still an Skoda however it’s an innovative one. It’s important to become accustomed to the light clusters that look like Ts as well as the look of the bumper as it’s the design that the majority of crossovers made by Skoda will be influenced by over the next couple of years.
It is interesting to note that Skoda chose to replicate the T-shaped light cluster on the rear fascia as the style of the bumper that has what appears to be an integrated skid plate that is only decorative, and has not designed to safeguard the underside of the vehicle. Actually, this feature will definitely remain in one form or another on production vehicles, where it is merely an aesthetic feature that makes the vehicle appear more robust.
It’s a large car with huge wheel arches to be filled it’s no surprise that the Skoda 7S concept rides on 22-inch wheels. They appear perfect for its size at certain angles,, it’s really athletic. From a third-quarter-view of the rear it’s clear how flat and smooth the roof is , and the fact that the spoiler on the rear is integrated makes it appear larger and more flatter.
The interior is animal-free and is a bolder contrast to the current Skoda models. It features huge infotainment screens that is able to change its position as well as a dashboard that folds away from the road while the car is in motion and a child’s chair which is attached to the central console which runs through into the center of the car in between all the seats. It’s likely this isn’t the typical seating arrangement of production models, given the layout would include a three-person bench seat in that second row (although the child seat’s distinctive position could be an alternative).
What is at the heart of everything is the development from that of VW MEB platform, powered by a battery pack of 89 kWh that has an WLTP distance of 600 km (373 miles) that can be charged 200 kW or more.
