A few days ago, Skoda lifted the curtain on the Vision 7S, a concept car that heralded the arrival of a new seven-seater 100% electric SUV positioned above the current Enyaq iV. The production version of this large zero-emission SUV probably won’t arrive before 2025, but by then the Czech manufacturer will have introduced something new to its range. In addition to a new electric city car and a small SUV that is also zero-emission, Skoda will soon raise the curtain on the replacement of the Superb sedan. It must also renew its smaller Kamiq and possibly replace its bigger Kodiaq, launched in 2017 and replaced last year.
Knowing that the Vision 7S concept car also gives a glimpse of the stylistic direction of the manufacturer’s future models, there is a good chance that the next production SUVs will be inspired by it very closely. This is a bet made by the artists of the site Coleslaw considering the design of the all-new Kodiaq. This new generation Kodiaq, 100% online and purely speculative, has a front end similar to that of the Vision 7S concept car with strikingly designed eyes and a large Range Rover-style rear.
What is the strategy within the Volkswagen group?
Note that the current Kodiaq has the same chassis as the Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace and Seat Tarraco. Will the Volkswagen group put combustion engines on the next generations of these models? What level of electrification will characterize the future Kodiaq, whose work will last until the end of the current decade? It is possible that Skoda is rather satisfied with the extensive modification of the current model, knowing that it seems less and less financially effective to launch the development of brand new fuel models due to the rapid evolution of the European market.
