Skoda have revealed the Vision E Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show.
The Vision E is the start of Skoda creating autonomous and their plan to introduce 5 electric cars by 2025.
The concept has a power output of 225 kW, has a top speed is 112 mph and has a range of 311 miles. They’ll be two electric engines that drive all the wheels.
At 4,645 mm long, 1,917 mm wide and 1,550 mm tall, the Vision E is a bit on the big side for an electric car. The sketches show short overhangs and the usual Skoda design.
Its interior will be spacious and have an elevated seating position with futuristic styling.
The Skoda Vision E meets the level 3 requirements for autonomous driving. This means it can operate by itself in traffic jams, go into autopilot on motorways, carry out overtaking manoeuvres, stay in lane and swerve, carry out search for free parking spaces and park and leave parking spaces by itself.
The Superb is set to get a plug-in hybrid in 2019 with Skoda’s first electric car expected in 2020.
