Škoda previews Vision RS Concept ahead of Paris debut

Concept Cars 4 Sep 2018

Škoda has released a set of design sketches and a video on a concept that anticipates the lines of a future compact model.

The sketches showcase a dynamic design with a strong focus on aerodynamics.

The car has relatively compact dimensions, with a length of 4,356 mm, a width of 1,810 mm, a height of just 1,431 mm and a wheelbase of 2,650 mm.

The front uses the brand’s precisely defined surfacing and features slim headlights. The rear is dominated by a diffuser and a roof spoiler.

The home of ŠKODA Design is a villa built in 1890 on the banks of the Jizera river in the Česana area of Mladá Boleslav.

It’s part of the advanced and tightly guarded Škoda Auto Technology Centre, which was moved to Česana in 2008 and modernised again in 2015. This is where futurist technology and tradition meet in idyllic surroundings to generate a very special atmosphere conducive to creative work.

And it is here that lead designer Oliver Stefani, along with 150 employees from 26 countries, develops the company’s future design language.

The villa was once the private residence of textile manufacturer Franz Hiller. During the 19th century, the site first came to house textile production plants. Parts manufacturing for ŠKODA vehicles arrived in the mid-20th century.
