For decades, Skoda has been manufacturing models that offer practicality as well as performance at the expense of good looks. But lately, the Czech Republic giant, who is also a part of the Volkswagen Group of companies, has started focusing equally on design as on other areas of the vehicle. A while ago the car maker came up with Skoda Mission L concept which greatly inspired the latest generation Skoda Octavia.
Today, the company has released a new concept called the Skoda VisionC which takes a new approach on concept car design. In fact, going by how effectively Skoda used the Mission L design, the VisionC could become the face of all new models or perhaps the next generation iterations of the outgoing models.
The VisionC is a five door coupe which features an even more expressive design language in comparison with the Mission L. Instead of using strong creases across the body for that attention-seeking look, Skoda has used plenty of mildly contoured convex and concave surfaces.
Despite being a five door model, Skoda engineers gave the concept a coupe look, hence striking a perfect balance between a sporty design and practicality. The car is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and therefore offers enough room for passengers without sacrificing on cargo space.
Powering the Skoda VisionC is a bifuel – CNG/petrol run 1.4 liter turbo engine which can produce a nice 81 kW. When running on compressed natural gas, the car consumes close to 3.4 kg of gas per kilometer, which converts to 91 g/km of CO2.
