› Sustainable materials: seat covers made of rhubarb leather and orange oak leather
Mladá Boleslav / New Delhi, 3 February 2020 – In the interior of the VISION IN concept study, state-of-the-art technologies and innovative materials meet traditional Indian craftsmanship and Bohemian crystal glass art. The wide, symmetrically arranged dashboard echoes the lines of the ŠKODA grille and has been inspired by the Indian textile printing technique Kalamkari, in which fabric printed with traditional patterns is produced in 23 steps. Bohemian crystal glass also catches the eye in the interior and, used for a crystalline ‘assistant’ in the middle of the dashboard, provides a bridge to the digital world. For the first time, the interior also showcases the use of rhubarb leather, an innovative organic leather, as well as oak leather and Piñatex, a leather alternative made from waste pineapple leaves. Seat covers and numerous storage compartments embody ŠKODA’s typical Simply Clever features.
„For the ŠKODA VISION IN, we have combined Indian and Czech traditions with state-of-the-art technologies. In addition, we have also used classic materials such as sustainable genuine leather produced without the use of any chromium, alongside vegan leather alternatives – allowing us to refine the new ŠKODA interior concept and enhance it with attractive details.“
Oliver Stefani, Head of Design at ŠKODA
