Skoda to go ahead with offroad Yeti

Skoda to go ahead with offroad YetiPrague - Skoda will go ahead with production of its offroad concept, the Yeti, with a production-ready model to be presented at the Geneva Motor Show, the Czech car maker has announced.

The offroader will retain the Yeti name of the concept first revealed in Geneva in 2005 and use much of the VW Tiguan technology from the parent company.

It remains unclear whether Skoda will pursue the idea of a pick-up based on the Yeti with a variable roof system that could transform a convertible into a pick-up.

Official pictures of the production model have not been released but Skoda says it will be closely based on the 2005 concept. (dpa)
