One of ŠKODA’s most secretive departments specialises in the production of prototypes and models. It is here that the cars you will get see on the road a few years down the line go through their embryonic stages. The department, referred to internally as EGV, has now decided to take a few steps out of the shadows.

You can forget about work selfies – EGV staff are not allowed to take photos in their workplace, and they need a special pass to get into the department. When a new car is being developed, their work is indispensable. However, by the time the new model has its world première and is unveiled to the public for the first time, they have already moved on to the next project.

It all starts with a vision of a new car and a full-scale model fashioned out of clay by the designers. This is also where EGV really gets down to business. This stage of development is the conceptual part. It initially concentrates on providing a virtual presentation, followed by 3D scanning of the designers’ clay models and the production of “hard” models, which look exactly like the future car, but are not yet the real thing.
