The VISION RS: A vision of future RS models
Whereas the KODIAQ RS is the present, the VISION RS concept offers a vision of the future of ŠKODA’s RS models. A future that combines a fine driving experience and environmental responsibility in equal measure.
The new VISION RS concept was exclusively introduced by Bernhard Maier, the ŠKODA AUTO chairman: “This is the first time in RS history that we are using a plug-in hybrid: the 1.5-litre TSI engine gives the VISION RS an output of 110 kW. This is supported by a 75 kW electric motor, giving the model a range of 70 kilometres on the battery alone – and therefore emission-free local driving. And best of all, thanks to the electric motor, the maximum torque is available from standstill.”
Inside the VISION RS concept study, you can also find new improved interior design features: a large, centrally positioned infotainment display, seat covers made with vegan materials, and a connection with Alexa – the voice assistant. “The best in class voice command for all important information on the vehicle from home or on the road,” added Bernhard Maier.
