Škoda presents the first interior sketch of the Vision 7S concept, a spacious next-generation vehicle with a completely new and versatile interior architecture suitable for up to seven people. The minimalist interior is made from sustainable materials, while the new design language is authentic and offers intuitive control of digital technologies and a high degree of functionality.
The Vision 7S is fully electric and Škoda’s first concept to usher in the manufacturer’s new design language. “The new design language is minimalist, functional and authentic. In the future we will continue to focus on Škoda’s traditional strengths, such as generous space, ease of use and a high degree of functionality. With our new design language, we are going a step further and placing even more emphasis on the customer experience. The great creativity of our designers and engineers is demonstrated by the mobile interior elements and the new Simply Clever functions, such as the integrated child seat,” explains Oliver Stefani, head of design at Škoda.
The interior is characterised by a symmetrical, wrap-around design and a wide, horizontal dashboard that extends to the doors, increasing the feeling of space. An optimally positioned hand rest makes interaction with the touch screen and haptic buttons easy and comfortable. Haptic controls are also integrated into the redesigned steering wheel. The integrated child seat is located in the centre console, the safest and most secure place in the vehicle, while the front seat backrests are equipped with media holders for second and third row passengers.
The cabin offers two distinct configurations: driving and relaxation. In driving mode, all controls are placed in their ideal position and the central touchscreen is vertically aligned. Relax mode can be activated when charging or parking: the steering wheel and instrument panel slide forward and the seats in the first and second rows move back for an even more relaxed seating position. This option offers passengers maximum space and comfort.
