Skoda has revealed sketches of its latest concept; a hybrid crossover that previews the Czech brand’s planned entry into the crossover market as early as next year.
Smaller than the carmaker’s all-electric Vision E Concept, the Vision X also looks closer to production ready. Its front end resembles the new Karoq medium SUV, but with separate daytime running lights and headlights that look like they’ve been lifted from the Hyundai Kona.
With sharp lines, bold bumpers and dominant side sills, the Skoda Vision X’s interior displays the brand’s new design language. It looks sporty too, with its contrasting anthracite-coloured roof the features a panoramic sunroof, flashy Flexgreen paint, and big 20-inch wheels that are unlikely to make their way to the production version.
Inside, the wide, ergonomically contoured dashboard flows around a freestanding colour display with “infotainment and connectivity services accessed quickly and intuitively” while ambient lighting shines through elements made of cut crystal glass.
While the production version of the Vision X won’t rely solely on a hybrid powertrain, a batteries-included version will be a key plank in Skoda’s plans for one-in-four of the vehicles it sells to be electrified by the time we welcome in 2025.
The Skoda Vision X concept will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show, which begins on March 8.
