ŠKODA is embarking on the mobility of the future with the new #visione #concept vehicle, allowing fans, friends and customers to participate all over the world. Thanks to virtual reality, smartphone users can experience the presentation of the brand’s first electric study on 19 April, 2017, in Shanghai and explore the details of the ŠKODA #visione. For this, they only need the new ŠKODA VR #app, which is available for free download from Google Play and the App Store.

​“We are delighted to present the ŠKODA #visione in Shanghai and at the same time all over the world,” says Stefan Büscher, Head of ŠKODA Marketing. “Alongside our partners Google and HTC, we are entering the virtual world and inviting friends and fans of the brand to join us. Thanks to new technologies and the ŠKODA Virtual Reality #app, everyone can explore our #concept vehicle #visione from home and experience the mobility of the future.”
