Leisure-oriented, independent and unique: EDAG designed the sporty SCOUT in 1999 as a niche vehicle. It took the themes of “the USA” and “the ranch” as its inspiration and this imagery is reflected in the use of materials and styling. The iconic, denim-clad rancher look that characterises the interior of the SCOUT is resilient and robust, symbolising life on and off road.
The car was based on a 4×4 saloon and launched as a pick-up derivative. One of the most striking features is the tailgate which lowers electrically and is integrated flush into the loading bed for easy loading. Virtual design tools and rapid prototyping techniques were used to quickly turn the SCOUT into a roadworthy study.
