Skoda has released new details and pictures of the Vision X concept.
While it may look like just another crossover, the Vision X has a lot going on underneath the skin. For starters, the model has a turbocharged 1.5-liter G-TEC four-cylinder engine which can run on petrol or compressed natural gas (CNG). That’s not too usual but Skoda engineers didn’t stop there as they equipped the model with a new hybrid system.
Another interesting feature is the concept’s unique drive system, Skoda didn’t go into specifics but said the model switches from front to rear to all-wheel drive as needed. This combined with the high-tech powertrain promises to give the model “spontaneous power delivery, increased agility and low CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km.”
Detailed performance specifications weren’t released but the concept’s rear electric motor will produce 1000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. The automaker also revealed the Vision X will have a range of up to 650 km (403 miles) which is likely possible due to its three powertrain sources.
