Mladá Boleslav, 17 February 2016 – ŠKODA continues to grow: Over recent
years, the brand has fundamentally expanded and renewed their model range.
The SUV range is now also being strengthened. With the ŠKODA VisionS, the
Czech car manufacturer gives an insight into how ŠKODA’s future SUV design
language might look. The brand also presents their most important future
technologies with the show car. The new ŠKODA Octavia RS 4×4, the ŠKODA
Octavia G-TEC with DSG transmission and the ScoutLine version of the Fabia
Combi round off ŠKODA’s appearance at Lac Léman.

The ŠKODA VisionS incorporates the brand’s new design language, carrying it over into
the SUV segment: the design is clearly influenced by Czech Cubism and the tradition of
Bohemian crystal art. The lines are precise, sharp and clean-cut; the distinctive interplay
of light and shadow on the contoured surfaces creates exciting effects, which are
accentuated by the Island-Green color.

With a 2.79-meter wheelbase, at 4.70 meters long, 1.91 meters wide and 1.68 meters
tall, the ŠKODA VisionS makes a bold statement on the road. Based on the Volkswagen
Group’s Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB), this is ŠKODA’s first vehicle to feature six
seats across three rows.

Another highlight of the concept vehicle is its plug-in hybrid drive: with 165 kW (225 hp),
the show car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds with a top speed of almost
200 km/h. 1.9 litres of petrol is all the car needs to travel 100 km (45 grams CO2 per
kilometre). The ŠKODA VisionS can go up to 50 km on electric alone, and will travel up to
1000 km with both systems combined.

The internal combustion engine is a 1.4 TSI with 115 kW (156 hp) and 250 Nm of torque.
This works alongside an e-motor that provides 40 kW of continuous power and 220 Nm
peak torque. It is integrated into the six-speed DSG, which directs the power to the front
wheels. A second electric motor with up to 85 kW and 270 Nm of torque drives the rear
axle. This works independently of the front axle drive, meaning the show car has a smart

four-wheel drive, which requires no mechanical coupling. The three engines cooperate in
a highly flexible manner: The driver of the ŠKODA VisionS can choose between several
modes of operation – from purely electric drive to charge modes, always with the goal of
maximum efficiency. The lithium-ion battery with a 12.4kWh capacity is positioned in
front of the rear axle.

ŠKODA has responded to the rapidly growing scope of information and the passengers’
desire to communicate by introducing automotive digital networking (mobile services),
providing large displays for optimum vehicle and infotainment services for all passengers,
who can connect to the network several ways from each seat in the vehicle.

The ŠKODA Octavia RS 4×4 will also be celebrating its debut at this year’s motor
show: ŠKODA’s top-of-the-range Octavia is available as a saloon or estate with the 2.0
TDI engine with 135 kW (184 PS) and DSG transmission. With a drive unit, which is both
sporty and safe, the Octavia RS 4×4 makes a strong partner for families, work and
leisure. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and reaches a top speed
of 228 km/h. In NEDC, the model will manage 4.9 litre diesel per 100 km; CO2 equivalent
of 129 grams per km (all values for sedan).

The ŠKODA Octavia G-TEC is particularly economical: It currently costs less than four
euros in fuel to drive this model 100 km. On request, ŠKODA can fit the natural-gas car
with DSG transmission. The 1.4 TSI provides 81 kW (110 hp) per km, emits less than
100 grams of CO2. The ŠKODA Octavia G-TEC is available in saloon and estate versions.

ŠKODA’s ScoutLine range also continues to grow. Alongside the Rapid Spaceback
ScoutLine, there is now the ŠKODA Fabia Combi ScoutLine – with its unique off-road
look and attractive, practical equipment features. Three petrol engines with 55 kW (75
hp), 66 kW (90 hp) and 81 kW (110 hp) and three diesel engines with 55 kW (75 hp), 66
kW (90 hp) and 77 kW (105 hp) are available.
