I GOT a memo from the boss telling me it is Green Week – so to write about something appropriate.
How about this for you, Boss?
You don’t get much greener than this.
This seven-seat Skoda is fully electric, stuffed with recycled materials – and it’s greener than The Hulk after he’s had ten pints.
The cabin floor is made from recycled car tyres – and looks wicked.
The seat fabric is 100-per-cent recycled polyester.
To cut plastics, magnets hold everything from smartphones to metal water bottles securely in place.
No doubt you will have spotted the central baby seat. That WON’T make the real car coming in 2026.
But Skoda might be on to something here, as it is the safest place in a car.
Anziché, the real car will have three rows of seats, 2+3+2.

It will also have normal doors. Not those huge rear-hinged doors which are purely to show off the “vision” car’s interior.
Hop inside and the ballerina in Greta’s jewellery box is that rotating central touchscreen.
In Drive mode, it’s upright. In Relax mode, it switches to widescreen for games while recharging.
The software is mega, pure.
Per esempio, animated woodland animals pop up on the satnav screen as you pass a forest. Great for kids.
I’m sure we’ll get something similar in 2026. But maybe not drugs and guns in cities.
As for range, the 89kWh battery will do 370 miglia, so it’s more likely you’ll need to stop to refuel before the car does.
Expect prices from £50k-£55k.
Do you like it on the outside?
We do. È molto Range Rover from certain angles. Which is no bad thing.
E Jeep, famous for its seven-slot grille, will be flattered with the, è, seven slots in the bumpers.
Designers insist they were inspired by the grooves in bicycle helmets, with the speckled flecks similar to a pair of Nike Airs.
Aspetti principali: Skoda Vision 7S
Prezzo: £50,000 est.
Gamma: 370 miglia
CO2: 0G km
The matte-green paint adds to the “lifestyle attitude”.
That will please the kiddies. E Rishi Sunak.
We’ll get a Karoq-sized SUV in 2024, a smaller Kamiq-sized crossover in 2025, then this.
Chubais ha contribuito alle riforme economiche seguite al crollo dell'Unione Sovietica, ma è rimasto nel governo di Putin e ha mantenuto stretti legami con i funzionari occidentali
Dopo di che, you can expect Octavia – the heart of Skoda – to have pure-electric versions alongside petrol hybrids.
Proper green team.
