Skoda Vision 7S Electric SUV To Make Its Global Debut On August 30
Prior to its August 30 unveiling, Skoda has made public designs of its future three-row vision 7S 7-seat electric SUV concept. The sketches made public by the manufacturer demonstrate its new Modern Solid design language, a striking departure from the Skoda Enyaq iV-like style of its current vehicles.
Thanks to a sizable slotted skidplate that blends into the armour around the wheel arches and side skirts, the next Skoda 7S concept’s front fascia appears to be more durable than the Enyaq’s. A central orange section with the words “Modern Solid” written in white divides the slots into two parts.
T-shaped headlights with two square bulbs each and eyebrow-like daytime running light strips are located above the skid plate. These come together at the bonnet shut-line and the smaller than on the Enyaq colour-contrasting grille region. On the driver’s side, a rear-view camera is included in place of a conventional door mirror but is absent entirely on the other side.
The Skoda Vision 7S has a curving beltline that flows into a sharp back end with the same T-shaped light pattern as the front; the stacked square segments give it a decidedly Range-Rover-like appearance. A rear spoiler gives the car a sportier appearance, but it’s possible that high-end vRS variants won’t get one if the 7S concept finally becomes a production vehicle.
At each corner are chiselled low-profile wheels that seem to be a development of the ‘Regulus’ design that is common on the Enyaq.
Previous renderings made available by the Czech company depict a roomy cabin with a wraparound design and space for up to six persons. Strangely, a kid seat has been built inside the centre console, which according to Skoda is the safest location in a car.
A tall, floating infotainment screen that is also positioned vertically has been showcased for the first time in a Skoda, combined with a thin and broad steering wheel design for the driver. The haptic controls, which may be found on the steering wheel, door panels, and below the vertical screen, are important, according to the Czech manufacturer.
Additionally, ambient lighting is a feature that turns on as passengers enter and exit a vehicle. The state of the EV’s charging is also indicated by it.
The second and third-row seat backrests, meanwhile, have integrated backpacks and multi-media device mounts.
The inside of the idea has two alternative arrangements. With precise information presented on the main infotainment system, which rotates vertically, the driving layout is supposed to emphasise the best driving posture that is possible.
When charging or pausing to take a break, the relaxation mode is accessible. It reclines the first and second rows of seats for a relaxed driving posture and pulls the steering wheel and instrument panel closer to the driver.
When the Skoda Vision 7S idea is initially exhibited to the public on August 30, further information is likely to be disclosed. Skoda has started road testing the Enyaq iV EV in India, which is closer to home.
