Russian Federation : Urban crossover Skoda will be able to ride on gas and electricity.

The company Skoda revealed details of the prototype city crossover Vision X, whose debut will take place in early March at the Geneva Motor Show. The concept car will receive a hybrid power plant, an internal combustion engine in which it can work both on gas and on gasoline. The power unit Skoda Vision X will consist of a 1.5-liter turbo engine, which produces 130 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque, as well as a pair of electric motors. One of them is connected to the internal combustion engine, and the second is located on the rear axle, ensuring the operation of the all-wheel drive system.

By installing the electric motor back, the conceptual crossover Skoda received a full drive, but it is not equipped with a cardan shaft, which allowed to reduce the mass of the car. If necessary, Vision X can be front-, full- or rear-wheel drive. Gas tanks are located under the seats of the second row, as well as behind the rear axle. Between them is a tank for gasoline. Batteries providing the operation of electric motors are located in the central part of the chassis. They can be charged on the move due to the recovery system: during braking or when coasting.

From a place to a hundred kilometers per hour Skoda Vision X accelerates in 9.3 seconds, and the maximum speed of a hybrid crossover is 200 kilometers per hour. The reserve of the prototype is 650 kilometers. Only on electric traction it can overcome two kilometers. The first images of Vision X company Skoda published in early February. The commercial version of the prototype could supplement the line of all-road cars of the Czech brand, consisting of Karoq and Kodiaq.
