ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab is a Future Port Prague partner

› Future Port Prague is the largest event for technological innovations in Central Europe

› ŠKODA AUTO will showcase its VISION X concept car at the futuristic expo

Mladá Boleslav, 28 August 2018 – ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab will support the Future Port Prague

expo on 6 and 7 September as an official partner. ŠKODA AUTO’s think tank will exhibit

current projects as well as innovative gadgets, and intends to scout for new talent at the

event’s festival. What’s more, the car manufacturer from Mladá Boleslav will present its

VISION X crossover study for the first time to a wider range of experts in its homeland.

Andre Wehner, as Chief Digital Officer at ŠKODA AUTO responsible for Corporate Development

and Digitalization explained, “As the largest platform for discussing technological innovations in

Central Europe, Future Port Prague is the ideal environment for finding young talent for our vision

of future mobility.” Martin Holečko, the founder of the event, added, “Future Port gives everybody

the opportunity to experience the future now. In a tangible, on-the-spot and hands-on way as well

as through inspiring conversations and talks.”

Alongside the conference, workshops and a symposium on machine ethics, the futuristic festival is

also a key component of Future Port Prague. This is where ŠKODA AUTO will be showcasing its

VISION X crossover concept car, which celebrated its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show

back in March. In Prague, the car manufacturer will now present it to a wider range of experts in the

Czech Republic for the first time. The design study is the first hybrid in ŠKODA history to combine

CNG, petrol and electric drive. The vehicle is rigorously continuing the digitalisation of ŠKODA

models and offers digital mobility services such as Smart Parking, the car-sharing service

HoppyGo, or CareDriver – which supports people requiring assistance in their everyday lives with

mobility services.

Furthermore, together ŠKODA AUTO and ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab will be presenting two of their

car-sharing projects: HoppyGo, a peer-to-peer car-sharing service, and Uniqway, a car-sharing

service for students. For ŠKODA AUTO, the ‘Shareconomy’, i.e. the sharing of things and services,

is just as much a part of the mobility of tomorrow as digital mobility services are.

ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab will exhibit current projects and innovative gadgets at Future Port Prague.

As part of the official program, ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab will host the Impact Meeting “Future of

Mobility” on the 7th of September. The most respected speakers and global mobility leaders from

different countries will discuss key topics about future of mobility and different opportunities for new

business development, how to enhance current automotive industry. At the event, the think tank

from Prague will also scout for young talent, who want to contribute their ideas to the development

of digital mobility solutions, and who want to actively help shape ŠKODA AUTO’s transformation

into the ‘Simply Clever company for the best mobility solutions’.
