Skoda Vision E celebrates its European premiere

After its world premiere in Shanghai, Skoda celebrated its European premiere at the IAA in Frankfurt. The Vision E study is a purely electrically powered vehicle that drives automatically at level 3, making it the first purely electrically powered and automated concept vehicle in the company's history.
Electric motors with a system output of 225 kW (306 hp) drive the four wheels of the concept study. The range of the Vision E should be up to 500 kilometers, the top speed 180 km / h. The long wheelbase of 2.851 millimeters and short overhangs at the front and rear give the concept study a generous interior, which thanks to the omission of the center tunnel, should score points with its generous amount of space. What is striking about the design of the electric vehicle is the absence of a B-pillar and doors that open in opposite directions.

With the Vision E study, Skoda shows a new level of connectivity in its company's history. In addition to the screens and displays for the driver and front passenger, each passenger has their own monitor. The infotainment system should be equipped with gesture and voice control. And for the first time, a system controls the driver's heart rate so that the vehicle can be braked independently in the event of health problems.

The autopilot, which is designed for automated driving at level 3, can independently accelerate, steer, brake and perform evasive maneuvers in the Vision E while driving on the motorway. An autopilot specifically responsible for parking should find free parking spaces and automatically steer the vehicle there. In the Vision E, the battery is charged using induction.
