Skoda working on one-off ute
Students from the Skoda Vocational School for Mechanical Engineering have created a one-off pick-up based on the Kodiaq.
The last time Skoda offered any form of pick-up truck to buy was the Felicia Pickup, based on the Felicia hatch from the 1990s. However, the company has toyed with making others with the Fabia-based Funstar concept from 2015, which also came from the Vocational School.
In fact, Skoda’s students seem to have a fondness for the weird and wonderful, having also transformed the Rapid into the Citigo beach buggy and chopping the roof off the Karoq to make the Sunroq.
This time, the students were given the Kodiaq as a starting point. Out went the urban-oriented wheels, replaced by chunky off-road shoes. Sharp bodywork and the deletion of the rear seats to make way for a small tray complete the look of the concept.
The project has the full support of Skoda’s design and engineering teams and will debut in the metal in June.
