20 students from the Skoda Academy are currently involved in the making of the seventh Skoda student concept car, scheduled to be showcased in early June 2020.

They have decided to design and build an open-top Spider version of the new compact model Skoda Scala.

Students at Skoda's vocational school got to work with the firm's Head Designer, Oliver Stefani, during the development of their project car
The participants have met Skoda Head Designer Oliver Stefani, and put their first ideas down on paper with him and his team. The still unnamed seventh Student Car, which the students will be constructing according to the design, will be presented to the public in early June.

For the seventh time in a row, the hands-on project underlines the high standard of training at the Skoda vocational school, which was established more than 90 years ago.

Throughout the project, the up-and-coming talents will receive support from Skoda's engineers and its experienced employees from the areas of technical development, design and production at Skoda's headquarters.

The apprentices will be using the new compact model which was introduced at the end of 2018, and which plays an important role in the Czech manufacturer's product range. The students have expressed a wish to make the car's clear lines and emotive shapes more prominent in the spider version to emphasise the vehicle's overall dynamics.

In creating their first drafts and sketches the students received help and valuable tips from all Skoda Design employees and they have won over the professionals with their enthusiasm and receptiveness.

The annual Skoda Student Car project demonstrates the high quality of training at the Skoda vocational school in Mlada Boleslav, which has been in existence for more than 90 years. Designing a concept vehicle and then building it by hand is the highlight of all apprenticeships.
