Skoda wants to conquer the most important single market China with the entry into the e-mobility. At the Auto Shanghai 2019 (April 16 to 25), Skoda will be presenting its electric future vision for the Chinese market with the Skoda Vision iV and the Klement two-wheeler concept. With the top model Kodiaq GT, the Kodiaq and Karoq and Kamiq only four different SUV models of the Czech brand are available in China.
The Vision IV gives a concrete view of a production vehicle. The first all-electric model of the Czech automaker based on the modular electrification kit (MEB) will be launched in Europe 2020. The entry into China will also be carried out in coordination with the joint venture partner SAIC Volkswagen.
Skoda has visually and technically adapted the Vision iV to the Chinese market and equipped it with a 204 hp electric motor in the rear, which drives the rear axle without emissions and enables a top speed of 160 km / h. The lithium-ion battery lies in the underbody of the vehicle and, with 83 kWh, enables a range of up to 500 kilometers.
With the mobility concept Klement Skoda presents micro mobility for metropolises. With the integrated 4 kW hub motor, the two-wheeler is up to 45 km / h fast, via swiveling pedals, the throttle and brake can be operated.
In addition, Skoda is celebrating the 60th anniversary of Octavia in China. In January 1959, the first examples of the model series rolled off the production line at the Mladá Boleslav plant.
