Meet the Škoda Sunroq. This cool-looking convertible, the work of students from the Škoda Secondary Vocational School, is a dream come true for the younger generation.

For five years now, the Azubi Car project has encouraged students at Škoda's educational facilities to cast conventions aside, team up with with professionals to devise a unique car concept, and bring a brand new Škoda into the world.
2018's team numbered some 23 students studying a range of subjects at Škoda's own trade school in Mladá Boleslav. In their work on this new study, they took on the roles of engineers, interior and exterior designers, mechanics, and even marketers. Professionals were at hand every step of the way to consult the individual stages with them and judge whether their plans and ideas were feasible.
"The initial phase was an opportunity to sit down with Škoda's professionals. While it wasn't exactly straightforward, we found it very constructive. And what was the most important lesson we learnt? Definitely the art of reasoning, which is sure to come in very handy in the future," said the students as they discussed their car.
