Skoda Vision 7S Concept Debuts With 7 Seats, Up To 373 Miles EV Range

Skoda is poised to embark on the next stage in its electrification strategy, previewing a future production EV with the Vision 7S concept. The study takes the form of a seven-seat box SUV with a zero-emissions powertrain and a new design language. The Czech automaker says the new style combines robustness, functionality and authenticity, which are the three main advantages of the brand.

The Vision 7S is Skoda’s first model to sport the company’s new Tech-Deck Face front end which is characterized by a large bumper with seven integrated vertical slats. The center one has a contrasting orange accent, while the rest is underlined by an aluminum protective panel that integrates with the bottom apron. The wide flat grille is surrounded by new T-shaped headlights positioned far to the edge.

The rear follows a similar design concept with the T-shaped taillights matching the shape of the headlights. The same can be said about the vertical bar, which matches the layout on the front. This vehicle uses 22-inch large wheels with a closed design for better aerodynamics. Another highlight of the Vision 7S box body is the flat roofline that slopes back and features a stylish roof spoiler. The concept is also Skoda’s first model with a matt body color.

The interior is a typical Skoda work with a minimalistic layout and clever solutions. The suicide doors reveal a spacious, airy space with seating for up to seven passengers. Most of the materials are from sustainable sources and the entire cabin is leather free. The floor, for example, is made from recycled tires, while the fabric is made from recycled polyester yarn. Thankfully, there are physical buttons for several functions placed below the free-floating infotainment screen.

The Vision 7S is based on the Modular Electrification Toolkit platform and features Skoda’s new brand identity. It is powered by an electric powertrain with a large 89 kWh battery positioned within the floor. The automaker promises a range of up to 373 miles (600 kilometers) and fast charging of up to 200 kilowatts.
