This is fact : after years spent with Jozef Kaban, the Slovak responsible, inter alia, a part of the design of the Audi R8 (first generation) and Bugatti Veyron, Skoda now has a new head of design, Oliver Stefani, transferred from Volkswagen.
That is what may well have in common the Volkswagen I. D (concept), Jetta, Tiguan, Golf or Polo ? A man : Oliver Stefani. The man has spent his entire career in the Volkswagen group where he has worked since 2002 and is past responsible for the exterior design of the Volkswagen brand.
Today, it is a new challenge that awaits him as he will have to find a new identity for the future Skoda in order to maintain the good dynamics of sales. Oliver Stefani, who has been at Volkswagen, it should still keep the sense of the stroke of the pen without the frills on the next productions of the house Czech.
Remember, that it replaces Jozef Kaban, a man of experience who had worked on numerous projects of prestige cars, like the Bugatti Veyron.
“Oliver STEFANI will introduce the next stage of development. He draws our cars by incorporating an emotional resonance even more, while allowing us to enter the era of digitization and electrification of the manufacturing of vehicles. Olivier Stefani has a potential to be very creative. I am looking forward to working with him“, commented the boss of Skoda.
