Czech automaker Škoda has revealed the first interior sketch of its upcoming concept car Vision 7S.
The sketch shows Vision 7S can accommodate up to seven people in three rows of seats, including an integrated child seat.
“In the future, we will continue to focus on Škoda’s traditional strengths, such as generous space, easy usability and a high degree of functionality,” said Head of ŠKODA Design, Oliver Stefani. “With our new design language, we are taking the next step and placing even greater emphasis on the customer experience.”
The car’s interior features a symmetrical wrap-around design. The placement of the hand rest makes interacting with the touch screen and haptic buttons convenient. Haptic controls are integrated into the redesigned steering wheel. Ambient lighting highlights various areas of the interior, including charging status, and provides appropriate lighting when getting in and out of the car.
The door panels also feature interactive haptic and visual elements. The integrated child seat is located in the centre console – the safest place in a vehicle. The backrests of the front seats are fitted with holders for multimedia devices for passengers in the second and third rows. These also have backpacks integrated into them.
In driving mode, all the controls are set in their ideal positions and the central touchscreen is vertically aligned to display all the relevant information while driving, the company said.
Passengers can activate relax mode when charging or stopping for a rest; the steering wheel and instrument cluster slide forward and the first and second row seats move back, allowing maximum space and comfort.
