Mladá Boleslav, 4 June 2018 – The fifth concept car created by students at the ŠKODA

Vocational School has been named the ŠKODA SUNROQ. For around eight months,

23 students from seven different professions worked on the concept of a cabriolet version

based on the popular compact SUV ŠKODA KAROQ.

One of the last steps in the project was finding a suitable name for the vehicle. To facilitate this, the

students invited ŠKODA customers and fans to submit suggestions via different social media

channels. In the end, SUNROQ was chosen from among several hundred proposed names – the

students found that it suited their cabriolet perfectly given its openness to the sun, which makes it

an ideal vehicle for a summer holiday. The author of the winning submission was invited to the

SUNROQ’s official presentation. He will meet with the students and their teachers and will be even

able to go on a drive in the functional concept car, which has a Velvet Red paint finish.
