The Skoda Vision E is 4688mm long, 1924mm wide and has a height of 1591mm. Due to the long wheelbase of 2851mm and the short overhangs, a very generous and comfortable interior has been created in typical Skoda style. The future-oriented car combines an SUV-like raised seating position and a hatchback’s ample amount of space with a dynamic silhouette and a gently sloping roofline in the style of a coupé.
Thanks to the large glass surfaces, the interior is light and transparent. The concept of horizontal lines is continued consistently and underlines the interior’s clear-cut structure and generous amount of space. Four individual, body-contoured seats with new backrests emphasise the modernity of the vehicle.
The Skoda Vision E is a fully electrically driven concept car based on the Volkswagen Group’s MEB (modular electrification toolkit).
Thanks to its power output of 225kW/306bhp, the Vision E accelerates instantly and dynamically. The characteristics typical of electric motors include maximum torque available from a standing start. The electric concept car achieves the highest level of dynamism ever experienced in a Skoda. Its top speed is 180km/h. The powerful lithium-ion batteries and intelligent brake energy recovery enable a range of up to 500km.
Due to intelligent management, the two electric motors work together with maximum efficiency and permanently drive all four wheels of the Vision E. The front and rear wheels are driven as required to ensure maximum levels of stability, safety and dynamism at all times.
The liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery is particularly powerful and is housed in the crash protection area deep in the chassis floor and located centrally between the front and rear axles. This positioning of the slimline high-voltage storage unit also contributes to the favourable weight distribution between the front and rear axle, as well as to the Vision E’s low centre of gravity.
Intelligent charging is one of the Skoda concept’s numerous “Simply Clever” features. It is done inductively, for example via a floor panel in the owner’s garage. Here, the vehicle is brought to a stop with the front axle above the floor panel/pad. This charging pad is connected to the power grid. Overnight, it completely charges the vehicle’s batteries automatically using induction technology, i.e. the operation is completely contactless and does not require a charging station or cable reel. Quick charging is also possible – 80 percent of battery capacity in only 30 minutes.
With the Vision E, Skoda not only provides an outlook on the fully electric and thereby locally emission-free future of mobility, but also on the forms of automated and autonomous driving which can be realised very soon.
