These sketches depict the new Skoda Vision iV concept that’s coming to the 2019 Geneva show, signalling the Czech brand’s rising intent to get some EVs off the ground early in the next decade. This, essentially, is our first look at Skoda’s first all-electric production car.
It’s billed as a ‘four-door crossover coupe’, similar to VW’s ID Crozz. It is still unmistakably a Skoda, with the brand’s design cues like the grille and C-shaped rear lights present and correct. The study will also have another classic concept car trope: comedy-sized 22-inch wheels.
Skoda points to the door mirrors, which have been replaced by cameras. It wouldn’t be a big leap to suggest that the production car may use similar viewing technology to the Audi e-Tron SUV.
No performance specs are outlined yet, given this is just a concept signalling intent rather than much else. After the Superb PHEV goes on sale later in 2019, next year will mark the start of Skoda’s range of production EVs. The brand also promises to have revealed 10 electric models by 2022.
We’ll find out more when the car makes its 2019 Geneva show debut, where it will sit alongside the new Kamiq crossover.
