With the ŠKODA VISION RS, the Czech brand combines its sporting tradition with a sustainable future. At the Paris Motor Show 2018 in October, the striking concept study – with its dynamic design language and efficient plug-in hybrid drive – provides the first insights into the next evolutionary stage of ŠKODA’s sporty RS models and the design of a future compact vehicle. ŠKODA also demonstrates a high level of environmental awareness with the use of sustainably produced Vegan materials.

Sharp lines. Smooth surfaces. Defined edges. The Vision RS is a clear nod to the racing genes it has inherited over ŠKODA’s 117-yr Motorsport history. Every exterior detail like the slim headlights, rear diffuser and the roof spoiler contributes to the car progressing like a bullet.
The sporty DNA of the Vision RS finds a futuristic expression in the interior design. There’s carbon everywhere. The space frame design, seemingly floating seats and cut-crystal details make the racy intentions of the car clear from the onset.
Brilliant white paint and carbon create striking contrasts: 
Xirallic crystal sparkle effect paint make the brilliant white finish of the ŠKODA VISION RS shimmer with a subtle blue effect. Organic components in the paint reflect heat, thereby reducing the interior temperature. Numerous black carbon elements affixed to the body create distinctive contrasts to the white paint. The high-tech material widely used in motorsport is featured in the redesigned radiator grille, front and rear spoilers, exterior mirrors, side sills, air inlets and outlets, and the rear diffuser.
Vegan materials, sustainable production and special surfaces: 
A carbon textile made from 100% recycled polyester thread is used for the upper part of the floating Alcantara® covered seats which bear signature Czech flags on their side bolsters celebrating Czechoslovakia’s foundation 100 years ago. Another example of sustainability are the floor mats which use Piñatex textile in a carbon weave; the high performance material extracts its fibres from the leaves of a pineapple tree. The sports steering wheel with a distinctive centre marking - similar to those seen in motor racing - has a centre pad featuring the same distinctive grain consisting of tiny triangles seen in the rest of the interior, carrying ŠKODA’s DNA into the brand’s future models.
