Skoda Vision E revealed: leaked images surface online

The Skoda Vision E concept, previewed through sketches over the past month, has been given an unscheduled digital unveiling today.

These images, obtained by Russian website AutoWP and published again by website Carscoops, offer a first clear look at the high-riding concept ahead of its Shanghai motor show debut.

The latest in Skoda’s long-running ‘Vision’ series of concepts, the Vision E previews a coupe-styled companion to the new Kodiaq SUV.

Although it appears more compact in these images, the Vision E measures 4645mm long, 1917mm wide, 1550mm tall, and rides on a 2850mm wheelbase.

Compared to the Kodiaq, the Vision E is 54mm longer and 35mm wider, has a roof that’s 126mm closer to the ground, and uses a 59mm longer wheelbase.

As expected, the Vision E builds on the styling themes of the company’s latest offerings, in particular the Kodiaq, while adding a number of character features that point to the concept’s future-focused intent.

Full official details are still to be released, but the Vision E is known already to be an electrified vehicle, with two electric motors delivering a combined 225kW of power.

Fuelled by lithium-ion battery cells, the Vision E claims a potential driving range of up to 500 kilometres.

The Vision E is also promised to offer a first look at the company’s autonomous driving plans, with a level three focus that will allow the car to steer, brake and accelerate for itself on motorways, in traffic jams, swerve as necessary, and automatically change lanes and overtake.

The Vision E’s production future is still to be confirmed, but its electric driving technology is a sure thing. In 2019, we’ll see a plug-in hybrid EV variant of the Superb, and a pure-electric Skoda car will follow in 2020. Four more will follow before 2025.

We’ll update this article when the Vision E goes official.
