Two weeks ahead of the world premiere of the VISION IN at Auto Expo 2020 in New Delhi (February 5 to 12, 2020), ŠKODA has released the first details in a teaser video. The concept study, which was specifically developed for the Indian market, sets striking accents with illuminated crystalline elements.
The first video of the ŠKODA VISION IN shows, among other things, a ŠKODA grille with prominent twin ribs outlined in crystal. The twin ribs and the ŠKODA logo above them can be illuminated, creating an impressive front look in tandem with split LED headlights. Crystalline elements also set visual accents in the interior of the VISION IN, for example on the gear selector button in the centre console, under the virtual cockpit and in the form of a new crystalline element on the dashboard. The seat covers have eye-catching decorative seams, and the multifunction leather steering wheel features the knurl wheels in line with ŠKODA’s new operating concept.
Solid, striking, muscular: Two design sketches give a first impression of the extroverted exterior of the new ŠKODA VISION IN. The approximately 4.26-metre-long concept study is a forerunner of a compact SUV designed especially for the Indian market, the production of which will start in 2020.
Eye-catching: the sharply contoured rear lights and horizontal light strip on the clearly structured, striking rear of the ŠKODA VISION IN concept study.
The front of the ŠKODA VISION IN concept study is characterised by a wide bonnet, the large ŠKODA grille with solid ribs and a robust front apron.
The design sketch shows the dynamic front of the visually compelling SUV concept study. In addition to a wide bonnet, a large ŠKODA grille with solid ribs shapes the visual impression. The upper, very flat units of the split headlights progress directly to the grille. Beneath is a robustly designed front apron with large side air intakes and a massive front spoiler made of aluminium.
The second sketch illustrates a clearly structured, distinctive rear with sharply contoured, three-dimensional rear lights; an additional horizontal light strip connects the reflectors. Illuminated ŠKODA lettering is prominently positioned in the centre of the rear; an aluminium diffuser is integrated into the rear apron underneath.
The interior sketch shows a wide dashboard arranged on several levels, which echoes the symmetrical contours of the ŠKODA grille in the centre. The colour orange, which inspires vitality and creativity, is used extensively throughout the interior, for example, on the centre armrest and door panels. The chrome-plated ventilation nozzles on the side are also eye-catching, with fine ventilation louvres spanning almost the entire width of the instrument panel. In addition to the large, free-standing central screen and virtual cockpit, a new crystalline element on the instrument panel creates an optical highlight. The three-spoke multifunction steering wheel features buttons and knurl wheels following ŠKODA’s new operating concept. The reduced and clearly structured centre console has a small control lever for gear selection.
As part of the INDIA 2.0 project, ŠKODA AUTO is leading the activities of the Volkswagen Group brands on the Indian sub-continent. Several cross-brand ŠKODA and Volkswagen models will be created based on the MQB A0 IN variant of the Modular Transverse Matrix, which the Czech car manufacturer is developing with a focus on India and Indian customers. The new localised sub-compact platform is being showcased for the first time in the ŠKODA VISION IN.
