ŠKODA VisionSea just an April Fools’

› ŠKODA sets the record straight: ‘ŠKODA VisionSea’ motor yacht not real
› Fact: New ŠKODA Superb features design elements from pioneering ‘ŠKODA
VisionC’ study

Mladá Boleslav, 2 April 2015 – ŠKODA does not have any plans to start
manufacturing speed boats. The press release published on 1 April, announcing
the launch of a ‘ŠKODA VisionSea’ motor yacht was an April Fools’ joke. The
carmaker would like to clarify this once again today.

Several points raised in the press realises were, however, true; in addition to the
functional strengths associated with the brand, ŠKODA’s model range is becoming more
emotionally appealing with an increased emphasis on modern and expressive designs.
The car manufacturer has not ruled out expanding the model range even further.
However, ŠKODA’s growth strategy will not be extended into the field of speed boat
construction.

The Czech brand’s new, expressive design language, however, is an impressive reality.
The new ŠKODA Superb has revolutionised the brand’s design. ŠKODA’s new flagship
incorporates several design elements from the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ show car into series
production. The result is a model that will make other motorists look twice – more clear-
cut, confident and expressive than ever. At the same time, the new Superb demonstrates
the manufacturer’s ability to build on their fundamental values of spaciousness and
practical solutions.

The launch of the new ŠKODA Superb marks a highlight in the most comprehensive
model campaign of the Czech carmaker’s 120-year history. The model will be available
on European markets in June this year.
