Created by BT Design, the Skoda Yeti Pickup concept named, the ETAPE was unveiled at the 2012 Auto Mobil International Show in Leipzig, Germany.
A new concept model for a small Skoda Yeti Pickup truck, which has been officially named, the ETAPE Concept made its world premiere at the on-going 2012 Auto Mobil International Show (AMI) in Leipzig, Germany. BT Design, a subsidiary of Benent Automotive (BA), a Czech company that works closely with Skoda Auto, created the Skoda Yeti Pickup concept.
Though the ETAPE is based on the production version Skoda Yeti, the Pickup concept has been given a complete overhaul with two doors, a wide body kit, a flatbed in the back and a new cabin. The concept also dons a new front and rear fascia, new side skirts, flared wheel arches housing larger alloy wheels wrapped in low profile tyres and redesigned interiors. The only aspect that is left unchanged is the car's bonnet.
The Skoda Yeti Pickup concept could actually be pushed down the production line if the BT Design and the Czech automaker enter into a joint agreement. If the deal goes through, the Yeti Pickup might turn out to be a good alternative to the popular American pickups, which seem too large for European roads.
“We want to inspire individuals and the whole industry. Our aim is to provoke even greater demand for individualization of cars from both end used and manufacturers. At the same time, we want to present the possibility of building a completely unique promotional vehicle to order to various companies”, said the BT Design managing director, Josef Zajicek.
