We do not need the particular ribs, yet we need this collection. And we kept it and introduced something we call Tech-Deck Encounter – mainly because in the future we will probably have got more radars, cameras plus sensors that we’ll have to incorporate. And this black polycarbonate screen you can see in the particular front can cover all of this particular, and it also may also grow whenever we all need. So it’s the good design approach for future years that all of us can use. It won’t obtain out associated with fashion due to the fact it’s really changeable. And this makes it a completely new technique. We now have slender daylights upon the best and because we’re talking Sports utility vehicles here, all of us have 4 vertical headlights – it’s the four-eye design we have today on other Sports utility vehicles, but within a different way. This particular is furthermore something that will makes the car – plus future ŠKODAs – look unique plus distinctive. So we transformed actually almost everything on the particular car, but without losing typical components. We need individuals to say: I observe a ŠKODA and I observe development.
Design from the ŠKODA VISION 7S exterior
May the new design language be applied to another generations of current versions, too, or only in order to newly developed ones?
To get now, it will probably be used solely on electrical cars , the initial one – an VEHICLE smaller compared to ENYAQ 4 – will be 2024. However of program, we’re one particular brand plus we don’t want to separate yourself from combustion engines. Thus later on when we’ll construct a car with the combustion engine, we won’t do it with the aged design because it would appearance old. So that they have in order to work and be linked together.
Was creating this concept – the whole process and experience – any totally different from working in other models like the brand new FABIA intended for example?
Indeed, it has been, because we all had no reference. We all did many methods from scratch. We now have great designers , younger designers, skilled and graphic designers who made lots of sketches. Then we picked one plus said: that is the way in which we’ll go. Anytime we necessary to decide something, we consistently said: zero, make it more contemporary, more progressive. Let us forget the outdated world, let us go further and quicker. And that’s something which was actually very pleasant for me personally. This pushed everyone to a different level.

How about the interior?
We’re having an all natural and completely new approach to the interior mainly because well. And with the particular exterior, particular ŠKODA rules will remain. The interior will stay symmetric. It will probably be democratic – we’re getting close to the entire family, we all call this the team. The inside is actually crew-oriented rather than driver-oriented. There’s a good feeling through how we all modelled the particular dashboard or doors so that you truly feel guarded. We have been furthermore changing the way a person control points, we’re not really going completely tactile, we also have haptic controllers, each physical buttons and types using a haptic response. We all believe that whenever you drive a car, needing to carry out everything on touch displays only can be not an excellent way. You need at least some haptic controllers it is simple to get and press with full confidence you are doing what you wanted.
Are available some information that are hidden at first view that you would love to point out?
The car has metal cladding over the particular wheels which serves intended for the aerodynamics, we can add probably just a couple of kilometres of variety by this, but these are details that we all do care for. All of us do almost everything for customers. Another illustration may be the 3rd brake lighting which is split because then we can have got the centre section of the top are available lower and improve aerodynamics. Then all of us have some coloured elements on the particular car which are stylish on the one hands, but additionally give the vehicle a really modern feeling on the other hand. We use sustainable materials within seats plus many additional places. Right now there are the number of such details.
The EYESIGHT 7S study was presented on September 30, 2022.
What are the proudest of concerning this concept?
That we have brought this particular towards the end as it is at this point. (Laughs) I like the particular proportions from the car, I like the rear a lot, I actually love the headlights. And the inside I like the particular seats plus the center console. It is such a strong method full of so many ideas that you’ll be actually, really surprised.
Which parts had been the most difficult, what do you have trouble with?
Nothing in particular. But the trickiest component of a car is always the front. It has been demanding in order to get the particular spirit of ŠKODA in to this part while making something totally modern on the same time.
