[UPDATE, May 27] Skoda has lost new pictures of its pickup truck based on the large Kodiaq SUV. It will once be called "Mountiaq."
The last time Skoda had a pickup on sale was in 2001 in the last year of the disappeared, but not forgotten Felicia. Before you get your hopes too high compared to a new truck from Mladá Boleslav, this utilitarian Kodiaq is no more than a concept car that is imagined by 35 students from the Skoda Mechanical Engineering School. It is the sixth vehicle to be developed by the talented students and the first is based on the large SUV.
The lively orange shadow of the one-time project reminds Felicia Fun, a lifestyle-oriented version of the pickup truck available in Western Europe towards the end of Felicia's life cycle. In the picture below, the peculiar special edition had the back seat that slid into the cargo bed. Skoda does not say whether the new two-door Kodiaq pickup has that function, but we would like to see it make a comeback for this unique project.
Skoda fans know that this will not be the first pickup truck to be built by Skoda students as the Funstar concept from 2015 was a Fabia supermini converted into a two-seater with a small bed. Other introductions introduced in recent years included Citigo-based CitiJet convertible, Rapid Spaceback-based Atero Coupe, Citigo-based Element electric car and last year's Sunroq – a convertible four-door Karoq. As with all the previous concept cars, the Kodiaq pickup truck will remain a one-time affair to show what Skoda's students can do when they have the freedom to experiment.
The official disclosure of Skoda & # 39; s sixth student car is off for June and the project is fully supported by Skoda's design and engineering team.
