ŠKODA showing VisionC dual-fuel design concept at Geneva

ŠKODA will showcase a five-door concept coupé—ŠKODA VisionC—powered by a CNG/gasoline bivalent 1.4 TSI/81 kW turbo engine, at the Geneva Motor Show. On natural gas, the vehicle consumes 3.4 kg (5.1 m3) CNG per kilometer, equating to CO2 emissions of 91 g/km.

Based in the Czech Republic and part of the Volkswagen Group, ŠKODA is using the concept to highlight the evolution of the brand, as well as compliance with Europe’s 95 g/km target.

Modern Volkswagen Group MQB technology, approaching series-produced drive systems, low weight and optimized aerodynamics are also highlighted in the concept.

ŠKODA currently has seven passenger car models: Citigo, Fabia, Roomster/Praktik, Rapid, Octavia, Yeti and Superb; the company delivered around 920,800 vehicles to customers worldwide in 2013. It has been part of the Volkswagen Group since 1991.
