Week 9 2018 - Skoda committed to fossil fuels
Skoda’s strategy remains stubbornly committed to fossil fuels as the automaker believes combustion vehicles can be just as clean as electric vehicles. The company announced this week that it would unveil the ŠKODA VISION X at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 this week. The VISION X drivetrain comprises of petrol, gas and electric power ensuring CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km. The internal combustion engine is a 1.5-litre TSI G-TEC four-cylinder turbocharged engine specifically designed for use with CNG (compressed natural gas). The CNG drive produces a maximum output of 96 kW (130 hp) and a maximum torque of 250 Nm. One CNG tank is located under the rear seat; the second behind the rear axle. The CNG unit drives the front axle; an electric motor drives the rear axle. This is activated as needed – to engage additional power when starting (boost effect) or to improve the traction on smooth surfaces and off-road. The capacity of the compact energy storage unit for the electric motor is sufficient to drive the concept study over a distance of up to two kilometers on electric power alone.
