At the Paris Motor Show 2018, the interior of Skoda’s new sporty RS models featured sustainably produced vegan materials, including Piñatex, Alcantara and recycled polyester.
The upper parts of the seats are made from 100% recycled polyester yarn, while the rest of the seat is made from Alcantara, a microfibre material with a look and feel of suede that consists of polyester and polyurethane.
The floor mats use a blend incorporating Piñatex, a leather-like material made from waste pineapple leaves: the fibres are extracted from the leaves, which are then turned into a nonwoven fabric.
