For Skoda Karoq Velo worked specialists from the British division of the brand. Working on the creation of a concept car, the engineers interviewed about one and a half thousand cyclists.

The conceptual crossover Skoda Karoq Velo, created by the British team of the Czech brand, showed what should be the perfect SUV for cyclists. In the course of the survey, the developers found out that a car for cyclists cannot do without a washing installation for a bicycle, as well as cleaning the clothes of the cyclist himself. In addition, such transport must be equipped with special fixings.

Skoda engineers made it so that two bicycles can be transported on the roof, and for one more instance there was a place in the trunk. Skoda Karoq Velo also received a set of all tools necessary for fixing a bicycle. This list is complemented by a Wi-Fi hotspot and a drone designed for taking pictures of air travel.

There is no information about the technical concept. Recall that the standard Karoq can be equipped with one of the five available power units. These are petrol liter and 1.5-liter engines with 115 and 150 hp accordingly, as well as three diesel engines – 1.6-liter with an impact of 115 hp and a two-liter capacity of 150 or 190 hp Skoda Karoq with the top engine under the hood picks up the first 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds, and its maximum speed reaches 211 km / h.

In the meantime, Nissan Navara pickup for travel got a tent on the roof.
