Skoda will reveal a new Vision iV Concept at the next month’s Geneva Motor Show. We have already seen the design sketches of the new all-electric concept from Mladá Boleslav, and now the carmaker has previewed the futuristic cabin in the new teaser.
The production version of the Vision iV Concept will be the first all-electric vehicle from Skoda. It will be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB (Modular Electric Drive Kit) platform which has been specially developed for electric vehicles. The ultramodern cabin shown in the teaser sketch has a minimalistic design and a large floating monitor sitting behind the two-spoke steering wheel.
Based on what we glimpsed in the concept, it is likely that this four-seater will have several practical storage places around the cabin. Between the driver and the passenger seat, the VISION iV has a floating centre console for storage and is easily accessible to the driver and front passenger, claims the carmaker. There is a provision for wirelessly integrating two mobile phones into the infotainment and operating system, and they can also be placed on charge inductively. The instrument panel consists of two levels whose lines and decorative stitching draw inspiration from the front of the vehicle.
Skoda is taking a step forward into electro-mobility with the Vision iV Concept. Over the next four years, the Czech carmaker will be investing around two billion euros in alternative drive systems and new mobility services. The carmaker plans to introduce no less than ten electrified models by the end of 2022.
