The Skoda Vision E electric car concept has been unveiled ahead of its Shanghai motor show debut. The 300bhp four-seat crossover coupe is based on VW Group's MEB platform; its design previews the look of future Skoda vehicles.

Skoda's electric-powered crossover coupe is expected to sprint from 0-100kp/h in just 6 seconds, which is about 0.5 sec quicker than an Octavia vRS.

The company says the Vision E is ‘powered' by two electric motors suitable for an 180km/h top speed and with a 500-kilometre range. While one of the motors sits on the front axle, the other sits at the rear axle, making for a four-wheel drive setup.

The first electrified vehicle from Skoda will be a plug-in hybrid version of the Superb, to be launched in 2019. ‘By 2025 one-in-every-four cars sold by Skoda worldwide should be a plug-in hybrid or have a purely electric drive,' says the company.

Skoda designed the Vision E in the Czech Republic; the crossover concept maintains purposeful dimensions with strong front and rear overhangs, a pleasant sweeping roofline and strongly-expressed feature lines.

With 1,591mm height, the Vision E is about two-thirds the height between the Kodiaq and Superb, delivering it as a tall car with crossover proportions.

"We have a very democratic interior, with good space for both the front and rear occupants," says Marko Jevtic, exterior designer of the Vision E concept.

The interior is futuristic with three large screens, the one on the right for the passenger's entertainment. Also, the concept is fitted with Level 3 autonomous drive.

The Skoda Vision E will debut this week at 2017 Auto Shanghai; the concept reflects the automotive world is changing, and Skoda is adapting to the new market trends.
