> With the Skoda Vision RS, the Czech brand combines its sporting tradition with a sustainable future
> Plug-in hybrid with system output of 244bhp, 70km battery range and combined CO2 emissions of only 33 g/km
> Concept study combines innovative vegan materials and special surfaces with sustainable production methods
At the Paris Motor Show 2018 in October, Skoda will premiere their striking concept study which portrays their future dynamic design language and efficient plug-in hybrid drive.
This is essentially the brand’s way of providing insights into the next evolutionary stage of Skoda's sporty RS models and the design of a future compact vehicle. The Skoda Vision RS plug-in hybrid drive combines a 150bhp 1.5-litre TSI motor with an electric motor that shells out another 102bhp.
The combined power output allows the concept to accelerate from standstill to 100kmph in just 7.1 seconds. Not to forget that it emits only 33g of CO2 per km. On battery power alone, the model can cover distances of up to 70km. The on-board 13kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged via a cable in 2.5 hours at a charging station.
Skoda also demonstrates a high level of environmental awareness with the use of sustainably produced vegan materials. Organic components in the paint reflect heat, thereby reducing the interior temperature. This high tech substance is widely used in motorsport on the radiator grille, front and rear spoilers, exterior mirrors, side sills, air inlets and outlets, and the rear diffuser.
We will bring more information in the time to come, so stay tuned to CarWale.
