Skoda has teased a pick-up based on the Kodiaq SUV, which is the latest in a line of apprentice-built concept vehicles that the brand has showcased over the past six years.
So far, only a rear end teaser image of the ute has been released by the company, which shows the concept’s shortened body, which appears to feature offer two seats, versus the regular Kodiaq’s seven-seat layout.
Designed by 35 students as from the brand’s school of mechanical engineering, the one-off Kodiaq pick-up will use large off-road wheels and tyres, as well as a reworked body with “sharp edges”, bright orange paint and a black sports bar above the traybed.
Previous efforts from the Skoda apprentice design team include a convertible version of the Citigo city car, a Fabia ute, a coupe version of the Rapid hatchback, an electric Citigo and a convertible based on the Karoq, which was called the Sunroq.
The design concepts have been built solely to showcase the Skoda team’s depth of talent, though none have been put into production as yet. Maybe a Skoda ute could be a different story.
