This funky pickup, based on the new Škoda Fabia, is cheeky and fresh with real fun factor, and not only in name. But sadly the Škoda FUNstar won't be in Škoda's showrooms any time soon.
The vehicle concept is the result of Škoda's ‘trainee car' project, which was run for the first time last year. The Škoda FUNstar will be making its public debut at the 34th GTI Meeting at Wörthersee from 13 to 16 May 2015.
This is the second year in a row that the Czech manufacturer has given selected trainees the opportunity to create their dream car. The company's goal with this programme is to promote and strengthen the vocational students' creativity and expertise. Training young people is a key part of the Czech car manufacturer's social responsibility, and the students are paid for their work during their apprentices. After successfully completing the training, Škoda offers all graduates a permanent job.
