It was in the year 2001 when Skoda last sold truck. Now, a group of 35 students from Skoda Vocational School for Mechanical Engineering are giving final touch to pickup truck that is based on Kodiaq. These young students were guided by experts from the Design, Technical Development and Production Departments. Work on the Skoda Mountiaq was started last September under teacher’s supervision and four month later, team began practical implementation. The finished product would be a two-door pickup with off-road theme. This Skoda Concpet will debut next month.
Students had to work on several adjustments and fabricate few parts from scratch. Reinforcement was important that was completed beforehand. Side windows and rear panels were made manufactured and front doors were modified. However, biggest challenge for the students according to Skoda was integration of functional taillight. Skoda Mountiaq Pickup Truck is 196.9 feet long and 0.1-inch shorter wheelbase with 4-inch more ground clearance when compared with Kodiaq Scout. It was made possible with the inclusion of 17-inch Rockstar II wheels wrapped in rugged tires.
Orange Sunset exterior finish can be founded on snorkel, front winch, bull-bar, and roof-mounted light bar. There is also illuminated load bed with hidden storage compartment underneath and illuminated grille at the front helps the pickup concept stand out without putting much effort. The interior also follows the same color scheme and combines orange and black leather. Power in this sixth Skoda Student Concept Car is 2.0-liter TSI petrol engine that offers an output of 187 horsepower (190PS / 140 kW). It took students over 2,000 hours for this purpose.
