Creating something is much more than just putting parts together. Design ensures there is a value, a meaning. This is why our cars’ appearance encapsulates more than you might realise at first glance. Spurred on by more than 125 years’ experience and the yearning to innovate, we are able to deliver an emotionally charged yet impeccably functional design, articulated by a unique crystalline look. Find out more about it, explore the entire process of crafting a new vehicle, and we guarantee that you won’t look at Škodas in the same way ever again. 

Crystalline design

In automotive design, ideas become matter. In Škoda design, matter and material are sources of inspiration. Bohemian crystal is what inspired the looks of new models the most. Keeping the design true to the brand legacy and its Czech roots makes Škoda models a perfect combination of function and style.

Turning ideas into reality

Design studies involve the materialisation of our designers’ ideas concerning the future forms and functions of Škoda automobiles. They show the direction which the Škoda brand’s design language will take and also how its typical visual elements will look in their future generations.

The birth of a new car

Design studies and concept cars serve as inspiration for designers when they are devising new production cars. This is the first step on the way to a new model.

The inscription “Laurin & Klement” alludes to our founders, who lived by the motto: “Only the best is good enough for our customers.” This maxim has underpinned Škoda’s design work for more than 125 years, and we continue to adhere to it to this day. Take a look at the cars we have created in that time. This is your chance to explore an L&K Škoda 110 and ride around 1930s Prague.

Škoda design around you

Graceful curves, crystalline elements, and the interplay between light and shadow. It is not just on our cars that you will find Škoda’s emblematic design. Since 2011, it has also adorned all trophies for the winners of the famous Tour de France and since 2018 for the most valuable players of the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.
