Mountiaq Concept Is Skoda’s First Take On A Pickup Truck

After months of training and more than 2,000 hours of intensive work, Skoda’s apprentices have finally completed the new Student Car. It’s called the Mountiaq, is based on the Kodiaq mid-size SUV and is just a concept that doesn’t preview a production model.

Converted into a pickup truck, the Mountiaq has seating for two and an open bed, with illumination and a hidden compartment. It also features a number of custom panels, a fully-functioning tailgate, roll-over and underbody protection, new bumpers, widened and shortened doors and redesigned fog lamps.

Finished in Sunset Orange, the Mountiaq gets a few modifications that enhance its ability off the beaten path. The front bull-bar, winch, snorkel, roof-mounted light bar, 290 mm (11.4 in) ground clearance -100 mm (4 in) more than the Kodiaq Scout – and 17-inch Rockstar II wheels with off-road tires, are other defining features. Furthermore, the brand’s logo on the bonnet has a lighting effect, the engine bay is illuminated and the doors project the Skoda lettering on the road upon opening.

Compared to the Kodiaq, the Mountiaq is 302 mm (11.9 in) longer, 123 mm (4.8 in) wider and 34 mm (1.3 in) taller. The 2,788 mm (110 in) wheelbase has been shortened by 3 mm (0.1 in) and the study tips the scales at 2,450 kg (5,401 lbs). Powering it is a 2.0-liter TSI petrol four that pushes out 190 PS (187 hp / 140 kW).

The interior has a few upgrades as well, such as a glowing Skoda logo in the roof lining, special embedding in the front seatbacks, orange highlights that bring the exterior shade into the cockpit, integrated refrigerator and Columbus infotainment with 320-watt speakers, 2,000-watt amplifier and 2,000-watt subwoofer. The show car comes with two walkie-talkies, too, so that the driver can be better guided on challenging terrains by their companion.
