Electric MG ZS EV showcased at London Motor Show

MG’s first-ever electric car, the ZS EV, has been officially unveiled to the public at this week's London Motor and Tech Show.
 

Revealed at the 2019 Geneva motor show is the Skoda Vision iV, the Czech brand’s concept for a future four-door coupe SUV.

Like the SEAT el-Born, which is also debuting at the show, the Vision iV is built on the Volkswagen Group’a MEB platform, developed for electric vehicles and already underpinning VW’s forthcoming I.D. EV.

The Vision iV is an all-wheel-drive model powered by two electric motors, providing total power equivalent to 306hp. The motors will vary propulsion to the wheels depending on need – Skoda says that the Vision iV will have a range of up to 312 miles between charges, and recharging to 80% will take 30 minutes.

Skoa Vision iV - Geneva 2019 02 | The Car Expert

   

While similar in overall size to Skoda’s current Kodiaq SUV, the Vision iV has a coupe-like exterior profile but no reduction in space inside due to the electric powertrain.

The interior is also very different from current Skoda practice. The minimalist design includes a horizontal, multi-level dash and a large, separate infotainment display mounted above.

Visually the concept features Skoda’s trademark front grille design, intersected by a full-width daytime running light.

A production model evolved from the Vision iV or the previous Vision E concept unveiled in 2017 is likely to appear by 2022, though it is not yet apparent whether it will be in traditional SUV or coupe SUV form.

Skoda’s first EV is expected to be a version of the Citigo city car, followed by a plug-in hybrid option for the larger Superb.
