Skoda has unveiled a new concept designed specifically for cyclists.
Called the Karoq Velo, it’s a compact SUV fitted with a host of features designed to help it become the ‘ultimate support car’ for fans of two wheels.
The car’s design has been led by a UK survey of more than 1,500 cyclists about what would make their ideal cycling vehicle.
Because 27% of respondents said that returning to their car with damp clothing was one of the biggest downsides of cycling, Skoda has integrated a fully operation washing machine. A pressure washer means the bike can be made squeaky clean, too.
Though there are no plans to put the Karoq Velo into production, the concept model will be used through the summer to help professional cyclists ahead of races and competitions.
