› The ŠKODA VISION E instantaneously accelerates thanks to its intelligent all-wheel drive
› Two electric motors with a total power output of 225 kW (306 PS)
› Lithium-ion batteries enable a range of up to 500 km
The ŠKODA VISION E is a fully electrically driven concept car based on Volkswagen Group’s modular electric car platform. Thanks to its power output of 225 kW (306 PS) generated by the two electric motors, the ŠKODA VISION E accelerates instantly and extremely dynamically. The ŠKODA VISION E’s top speed is limited to 180 km/h. The powerful lithium-ion batteries and intelligent brake energy recovery enable a range of up to 500 km.
“Typical for electric motors, the characteristics include maximum torque available from a standing start, which results in very good responsive qualities. When accelerating, the concept car thereby achieves the highest level of dynamism ever experienced in a ŠKODA,” said Christian Strube, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development. The ŠKODA VISION E’s top speed is electronically limited to 180 km/h. Thanks to the efficient and powerful lithium-ion batteries and an intelligent brake energy recovery system, a range of up to 500 km is achieved. When charging, 80 per cent of the battery capacity is reached in just 30 minutes.
Due to intelligent management, the two electric motors with 225 kW (306 PS) work together with maximum efficiency and permanently drive all four wheels of the ŠKODA VISION E. The intelligent all-wheel drive further enriches the purely electric driving experience. Front and rear wheels are driven as required based on the driver’s demands and the individual driving situation to ensures as well as maximum level of stability, safety and dynamism at all times.
The powerful, liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery is housed in the crash protection area deep in the chassis floor and centrally between front and rear axles. This positioning of the slimline high voltage storage unit also contributes to the favourable weight distribution between the front and rear axle as well as to the ŠKODA VISION E’s low centre of gravity.
