The all-electric Vision iV concept has been revealed at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show. This new creation by Skoda offers a look ahead at the Czech automaker’s electric future. The iV SUV is the first vehicle to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform.
The four‑door crossover blends sporty, couple-like lines with all-wheel drive and two electric motors outputting 306bhp. It is 4,665mm long, 1,926mm wide and has a height of 1,613mm. The Vision iV offers a preview of Skoda’s first production car to be based on Volkswagen Group’s MEB platform.
The crossover is powered by two electric motors – one on the front axle and one on the rear axle – giving it all-wheel drive capability. The power is distributed to the wheels depending on the conditions. The car has a maximum range of 500km and the battery can be charged to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes. Through the use of laser scanners, radar sensors and cameras, the concept car can navigate its surroundings. In suitable situations it can even drive autonomously and park by itself.
Besides the Vision iV crossover, Skoda is alsow showcasing their all-new compact SUV called the Kamiq. The latter is expected to eventually arrive in the Indian market after the bigger Karoq.
