ŠKODA’s urban SUV, the KAMIQ, and electric crossover-coupe concept, the VISION iV, made their world premiere at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, showing the motoring world what it means to be Driven by Something Different.
The all-new, all-electric SUV concept was unveiled to the world at this year’s show, the VISION iV.
The four-door crossover-coupé, boasts a range of over 310 miles thanks to its two electric motors - one powering the front axle and one the back.
The ŠKODA lettering on the rear is backlit red, very popular with show-goers.
This was the first chance for motoring enthusiasts to get up close and personal with the brand’s city SUV, KAMIQ.
It’s the first car in its segment to offer the option of clever door-edge protection that deploys automatically when the doors are opened and the tailgate can be opened and closed at the push of a button. Thanks to its integrated tip-to-close function, it can also be closed by lightly pulling on the open tailgate.
The new SUV is the brand’s first model to feature split LED headlights with daytime running lights. The full-LED version also features fog lights with static cornering lights as well as – for the first time in a ŠKODA – dynamic front and rear indicators. The front indicators are divided into individual LEDs.
The Geneva Motor Show provided the perfect platform for showing off the brand’s first model to be based on the MQB platform – the SCALA.
Nearly a month after the first model rolled off the production line in Mladá Boleslav, the SCALA was still turning heads and impressing with its emotive design and state-of-the-art connectivity.
Graeme Lambert, Product Affairs Manager, said of the SCALA: “With the new SCALA we’re going to redefine our offering in the family hatch sector. Like the rest of our range the SCALA boats class-leading levels of practicality and space, safety, efficiency and Simply Clever features but this time adds class-leading connectivity, sharp, modern, distinctive design and a range of personalisation options.”
The latest generation of the championship winning FABIA R5 rally car had a section of its own where motorsport fans could try their hand behind the wheel with the help of virtual reality.
The KLEMENT mobility concept is a vision for the future of micromobility in cities.
The integrated 4kW rear hub motor accelerates the KLEMENT to a top speed of 28mph, and its throttle and brake control are made child’s play by the pivoting pedals.
The KLEMENT is the latest in mobility technology it is also a link to the company’s roots – back to 124 years ago when the story of ŠKODA began with the manufacturing of bicycles under founding fathers Laurin & Klement.
