In a release that went out the media recently, Å koda has showcased a video about the Bohemian crystal work that inspires the Czech carmakerâ€™s design themes. The video is believed to be a teaser to the next concept in Å kodaâ€™s â€˜Visionâ€™ series and is likely to be called the Vision E.
While the Vision D, Vision C and Vision S that preceded it acted as a precursor for the Octavia, Superb and the Kodiaq, the Vision E will preview a coupÃ© crossover that is expected to take shape as the Kodiaq coupÃ©. Earlier reports and a leaked presentation hinted that the Kodiaq coupÃ© would be a model exclusive to China, but recent developments indicate that a global derivative is on the cards too. The latter is speculated to be based on the Volkswagenâ€™s MEB platform and will run on an all-electric drivetrain (hence the â€˜Eâ€™ alphabet in the Vision E). The coupÃ© form could also make it a 5-seater, unlike the 7-seater arrangement in the Kodiaq.
The concept will be unveiled at the 2017 Shanghai Auto Show, which is scheduled to be held between April 21-28, 2017.
