Skoda’s Students Are Working On A Two-Door Kodiaq Pickup

The Skoda Kodiaq is about to be turned into a two-door pickup by Skoda’s vocational students. The 35 young men and women are being assisted by the brand’s engineers and Technical Development staff and will be presenting the finished project in June.

Offering a glimpse into the vehicle is an official rendering which points out the obvious: a single-cab body style with an open bed behind the two seats. Elsewhere, the Kodiaq Pickup gets plastic cladding, chunky off-road rubber and perhaps more ground clearance.

“The Student Car is a fantastic project”, said student Zuzana Otradovska. “Where else do you get this unique opportunity to build your own car as part of your vocational training, in a small team and with the support of experienced Skoda engineers, designers and teachers, all while being able to implement your own ideas and visions?”

The Kodiaq Pickup is a concept, so don’t look for it in Skoda’s showrooms. It’s the company’s latest study made by students from the Skoda Academy in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic, and continues a tradition that started in 2014 with the Citijet. Known internally as the ‘Little Bruiser’, it was a convertible version of the Citigo, with seating for two inside and a two-tone paintjob on the outside.

In 2015, they presented the Funstar, a Fabia pickup with a professional sound system, and a year later they uncovered the Atero, a 3-door coupe variant of the Rapid Spaceback.

Another Citigo-based project was shown in 2017. Called the Element, it was an open-top model with an electric powertrain that was fitted with a refrigerator and a 108 cm (42.5 in) TV. Meanwhile last year, the students came up with the Sunroq, a convertible Karoq with redesigned A and B pillars and readjusted doors.
