The student concept car project

The ŠKODA KODIAQ is the starting point for this year’s annual hands-on student project at the ŠKODA Vocational School in Mladá Boleslav.


35 students have been set the challenge of transforming our largest SUV into a dynamic, two-door pickup. Their creation will be introduced to journalists and the public in June.

Students aged between 17 and 20 years old attend the ŠKODA Vocational School for Mechanical Engineering. As trainees, they are supported by experienced ŠKODA engineers and staff from the Technical Development, Design and Production departments.

Each year since 2014 the students have produced one new concept car. The KODIAQ is the sixth vehicle to be chosen as the starting point for the project.

Student Zuzana Otradovská said: “The student concept car is a fantastic project.

“Where else do you get this unique opportunity to build your own car as part of your vocational training - in a small team and with the support of experienced ŠKODA engineers, designers and teachers? And all while being able to implement your own ideas and visions.”
