But it’s under the Hood where the Czech crossover has turned the cards into play. The House of the Winged arrow has, in fact, designed to equip the compact SUV with a new hybrid powertrain that, unlike the usual schemes (electric/gasoline or electric/diesel), uses a thermal engine powered by methane (natural gas) and two Electric motors of different performances.

Thanks to this system the 2019 Skoda Vision X can only operate in electric mode for only 2 kilometers (rear wheel drive) or in combined mode or with the only thermal motor (front drive) for a total range of 650 km, Ensuring a maximum speed of 200 km/h and a 0-100 km/h in 9.3 seconds.
