ŠKODA unveils giant vRS ‘Man-Pram’

25/07/2013
ŠKODA has unveiled the ultimate baby buggy, dubbed the ‘vRS Mega Man-Pram’ – a high performance vehicle that has been designed to provide the ultimate baby transportation experience. ‘King Size’ buggy is the ultimate accessory for new dads.

Milton Keynes, 25th July 2013 - To celebrate the launch of the Octavia vRS – the fastest ŠKODA ever – the company gave a team of engineers the task of bringing the same qualities that go into the car to other everyday objects. These included the vRS Man-Pram and were highlighted in a new ad launching the third-generation Octavia vRS.

The pram’s vRS style makeover fits perfectly with a ŠKODA-commissioned survey of 1,000 dads which found that two thirds (76%) admitted they would spend more time pushing baby if they had access to a higher spec and more stylish buggy.

The result is a remarkable baby carriage: standing two metres high. The buggy comes complete with wing mirrors, hydraulic suspension, 20 inch alloy wheels, oversized brake callipers, anti-stress grips and a headlamp beam for night walks. Tots lucky enough to be carried on board can look forward to “sports-style upholstery” and “adjustable lumbar support”.

Heidi Cartledge, Head of Marketing at ŠKODA UK comments: ‘The ‘vRS Mega Man-Pram’ proves what you can do when you take the vRS vision off road and drive it straight into the nursery. We used it in the new Octavia vRS TV ad because we wanted to bring to life the idea of enhancing the performance of everyday objects. The high tech-buggy gives a tongue in cheek sense of what you could experience if you vRS’d your life’.

The ŠKODA survey of British dads uncovered the most desirable additions to a high tech stroller which were reflected in the ‘vRS Mega Man-Pram’ design.

The full spec includes:

  • Wing mirrors
  • High spec brakes including brake lights
  • High-beam headlamp
  • Hydraulic suspension
  • 20 inch alloy wheels
  • All terrain tyres
  • Oversized brake callipers
  • Anti-stress push-bar grips
  • Sports-style upholstery

The ‘vRS Mega Man-Pram’ features in the new advert for the Octavia vRS, which debuts exclusively on YouTube today http://youtu.be/BgZluCEBS6w. A behind the scenes ‘making of’ can also be accessed here http://youtu.be/Kx2M0VB1f1A.

Survey findings

1,000 dads were surveyed revealing the following:

  • 76% would be more inclined to spend more time pushing baby if they had access to a stylish, high spec buggy.

  • The top five additions they would like to see were listed as: muscular design (25%), large alloy wheels to give enhanced height (22%), hydraulic suspension system (16%), high spec brakes including brake lights (15%) and wing mirrors (12%).

  • A third of British dads (33%) admitted they sometimes feel embarrassed pushing conventional prams whilst one in four (25%) always insist that their partner pushes the pram when out for walks together.

  • British dads use baby buggies for an average of 1 hour each week.

Success Story: ŠKODA and Volkswagen Celebrate 25-Year Partnership
The foundations of an exemplary success story were laid 25 years ago. The partnership between the Volkswagen Group and the Czech carmaker began on 16 April 1991. From that point on, the traditional Czech brand evolved from being a regional market leader to an internationally successful vehicle manufacturer. In the presence of Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller and Jaroslav Povšík, head of trade union KOVO MB, ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier commemorated this outstanding milestone in the company’s 121-year history today. Around 500 guests from politics, economy and society took part in the anniversary celebrations at the Laurin & Klement Forum of the ŠKODA Museum in Mladá Boleslav.

ŠKODA: Best First Quarter and Best March in Company’s History
Recording its best first quarter and strongest single month in the company’s 121-year history, ŠKODA highlights its growth in March: Between January and March 2016, the Czech automaker delivered 276,600 vehicles to customers, which is 4.3% more than in the same period last year. Delivering 106,300 units to customers worldwide in March (March 2015: 102,100; up 4.2%), the company sold more vehicles than ever before in a single calendar month. The positive developments in the core markets of China and Europe – with double-digit growth in numerous individual markets – also contributed to their record sales figures, including the significant gains of the ŠKODA Fabia, Superb and Yeti model series.
20 Years of ŠKODA Octavia: Jubilee for the Heart of the Brand
One of the most successful model series in the automotive world made its debut 20 years ago: In 1996, ŠKODA AUTO presented its Octavia saloon for the first time to international media representatives. Over the following two decades, the Octavia became a worldwide hit and is still the traditional Czech automaker’s best-selling model. The vehicle has been instrumental in the successful development of the ŠKODA brand.
