ŠKODA releases design video and interior sketches of VISION RS

› ŠKODA VISION RS interior combines sportiness and sustainability
› Video offers a glimpse at the interior design of the concept car
› Sporty compact study celebrates its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show 2018

Mladá Boleslav, 6 September 2018 – The ŠKODA VISION RS gives an outlook on the future of
the ŠKODA RS models. The design sketches offer a first impression of the concept study’s
interior before the official world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in October. In addition, a
video shows the innovative interior – with vegan and sustainably produced materials – taking
shape in a Prague design studio.

The video invites the viewer into the studio in the Czech capital, not far from Prague Castle,
Charles Bridge, the Dancing House and Žofín Palace. The first designs for the future ŠKODA models
are not only being drawn up at the design studio in Česana / Mladá Boleslav, but also in the inspiring
environment and atmosphere of a Prague art nouveau building at Masarykovo nábřeží.

A ŠKODA designer skilfully sketches a sporting and airy interior with seemingly
floating seats, carbon and crystal glass, striking light effects and stylistic references to motor sport.
The ŠKODA VISION RS is brilliant white, underlining its clean drive technology and sustainably
sourced materials.

Crystal glass, carbon and references to motor sport
The elongated instrument panel with carbon elements picks up the symmetrical contours of the
radiator grille. The decor of the VISION RS consists of handmade and specially cut crystal from the
Czech glass manufacturer Lasvit. The instrument panel features special RS design animations and is
illuminated by lighting effects that interact with the infotainment system touch screen.

The centre console of the VISION RS in space-frame design with integrated shift-by-wire operation of
the DSG is made entirely of carbon. Also used for the decorative elements, door panels and seats, this
high-tech material creates a direct link to the world of motor racing. The special loop-shaped door
handles are reminiscent of racing cars; storage compartments with elastic rubber bands are “simply
clever”. In addition to a sporty appearance, sustainability is another key element of the ŠKODA
VISION RS. For example, the carbon fibres consist of 100% recycled polyester, with the seat covers
made from vegan Alcantara.
