Skoda will premiere its design debut concept called the VisionC at the Geneva Motor Show 2014. This five door coupe chassis, a first for Skoda, hints at the design of future sedans to come out of its stables. This concept will eventually give rise to a model slated to fill the gap between the Octavia and the Superb sedans. The VisionC is based on Skoda's MQB design architecture. The company says that the car is quite spacious and can carry five occupants in comfort along with their luggage.

ŠKODA VISIONC' DESIGN CONCEPT press release


Evolution: ŠKODA VisionC – the next stage in the development of ŠKODA design language Design: Expressive, dynamic, confident, emotional Concept: ŠKODA develops its first five-door coup chassis Characteristic of ŠKODA: Design meets functionality - Coup with large hatch Technology: Modern modular technology, low weight and optimised aerodynamics for responsible individual mobility Environment: already meet the stringent EU2020 emissions standard using conventional technology - 91g CO2/km Mlad Boleslav, 27 February 2014 – As a part of the most comprehensive model campaign in the brand's history, ŠKODA is renewing and expanding its model range. The design language of the dynamic and elegant five-door coup 'ŠKODA VisionC' introduces the next evolutionary step in ŠKODA design: The design is becoming more expressive, dynamic and emotional and underpins the dawn of the brand. At the same time the five-door coup concept demonstrates the possibilities in innovative and emotional chassis design. For more than 100 years, ŠKODA has been manufacturing cars with high demands on design. ŠKODA is once again emphasising the traditional brand's expertise in design and engineering through the 'ŠKODA VisionC' design concept. "We are signalling the next stage in the evolution of ŠKODA's design language with 'ŠKODA VisionC', and thus highlighting the dawn of the brand. The vehicle demonstrates the company's outstanding design and engineering expertise, and underpins the dynamism and value of one of the world's longest-established automotive companies," says Prof. Dr. h.c. Windried Vahland, ŠKODA CEO. As a five-door coup, the 'ŠKODA VisionC' features a new expressive, dynamic and emotional design language. The interplay of soft, slightly contoured, concave and convex surfaces, as well as sharp, precise lines creates an immediate impact. The surfaces and proportions demonstrate clear arrangement and a striking interaction of light and shadow. The front has an air of confidence and energy, and the tailgate adds an element of surprise, accentuated with a radical conclusion. In addition to its creative ambition, the 'ŠKODA VisionC' impressively demonstrates the ŠKODA engineers' concept of ingenuity; design, engineering, space, functionality and the emotional coup shape combine in compelling unity. The 'ŠKODA VisionC' provides plenty of room for four people and their luggage. The large boot and excellent loading capacity are characteristic of ŠKODA. Modern MQB technology, approaching series-produced drive systems, low weight and optimised aerodynamics also demonstrate the high potential of responsible individual mobility. Under the bonnet, we find a CNG/petrol bivalent 1.4 TSI/81 kW turbo engine. On natural gas, the vehicle consumes a mere 3.4 kg or 5.1 m3 CNG per kilometre, equating to CO2 emissions of only 91 g/km. ŠKODA has made a huge leap in demonstrating that even attractive mid-class vehicles can meet the stringent EU2020 CO2 emissions standard with today's conventional drive technology.
