The Skoda Vision E concept, which previews a 300bhp all-electric crossover that's due to go on sale in 2020, has been revealed ahead of its official unveiling at next month's Shanghai motor show, along with sketches of the car's interior.
The concept is based on the Volkswagen Group’s new MEB 'skateboard' platform and is set to offer a value-for-money alternative to the Tesla Model X when it makes production in two years' time. It could earn the name Aratan, which was recently trademarked by Skoda.
At 4.64m long and 1.92m wide, the Vision E is a little shorter and wider than Skoda’s new Kodiaq SUV and features a modern interior with four rotatable seats. The production car is likely to feature five seats - Skoda highlights the lack of transmission tunnel for passenger space - and it's already confirmed to have a large boot.
Inside, Skoda’s designers have created a new interior architecture with a sweeping dashboard centred on a 12in touchscreen, which is centrally mounted and arranged in conventional ‘landscape’ format.
