ŠKODA will be presenting the full range of its mobility services at the Geneva Motor Show from March 5 to 17.
The VISION iV concept study offers a concrete look ahead at the first all-electric ŠKODA based on the MEB modular electric car platform. With the new KAMIQ, the Czech car manufacturer is expanding its successful SUV family into the growing segment of urban SUVs, and the SCALA is completely redefining the compact car segment for ŠKODA. What’s more, ŠKODA will be presenting an innovative mobility solution for the city – the KLEMENT, an electric two-wheel concept.
At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, ŠKODA will position itself as the Simply Clever company for innovative mobility services. With the VISION iV and the KLEMENT, ŠKODA offers exciting prospects for an electric future. In addition the new KAMIQ SUV and the new SCALA will also be presented.
2019 marks an exceptional occasion in the company’s 124-year history: ŠKODA is entering the eMobility era. Over the next four years, the company will be investing approximately two billion euros in alternative drive systems and new mobility services – the biggest investment programme in the brand’s history. ŠKODA will have introduced ten electrified models by the end of 2022.
The VISION iV offers a concrete look ahead at the future ŠKODA family of vehicles running purely on electric batteries. The concept study is ŠKODA’s first vehicle to be built on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB modular electric car platform, sporting an athletic, aerodynamic body and offering a spacious interior typical of a ŠKODA. The 22-inch wheels provide a visual highlight and emphasise the impressive presence of the vehicle. Two electric motors – one on the front and one on the rear axle – form the emission-free drive system, making the VISION iV an all-wheel drive. The planar lithium-ion battery installed in the vehicle’s underbody saves space and provides a range of up to 500 kilometres according to the WLTP cycle.
ŠKODA is continuing its successful SUV campaign, presenting its first urban SUV with the new KAMIQ. After the KODIAQ and the KAROQ, the KAMIQ is the third SUV model for the European market, rounding off the lower end of the successful SUV portfolio.
The ŠKODA SCALA completely redefines the compact car segment for ŠKODA with leading functionality, state-of-the-art connectivity and an emotive design to match. The SCALA offers high levels of active and passive safety, full-LED headlights and LED tail lights. Luggage and cabin space will also be class leading. The entry-level engine is a three-cylinder 1.0 TSI delivering 95bhp. A more powerful 1.0 TSI with a power output of 115bhp with a 6-speed manual; or a 7-speed DSG is also offered. A four-cylinder 1.6 TDI diesel engine delivering 115bhp is also part of the offering.
Pure, simple and intuitive to operate: the new KLEMENT electric mobility solution represents a modern and environmentally friendly lifestyle. The futuristic two-wheel concept positions itself as an ecological alternative to the car in the field of micromobility. An electric rear hub motor and integrated brake energy recuperation accelerate the bike to a top speed of 45 km/h; Two batteries allow for a range of more than 60 kilometres. The KLEMENT is fully connected; For example, the current battery levels can be displayed via an app. In addition, a geographical boundary can be pre-defined, out of which the KLEMENT cannot ride.
