Ice cube competition winner wins Skoda Yeti Outdoor


Back in February 2014, Skoda UK encased a Yeti Outdoor within tonnes of ice and put it on display in Covent Garden. Members of the public were invited to guess the combined weight of the car and ice cube for a chance to win a Yeti Outdoor. The Skoda Yeti Outdoor weighed 1,465 kgs and the ice cube weighed 9,720 kgs for a combined weight of 11,185 kgs. Elaine Mendes from Harrow guessed the correct answer and is now a proud owner of a new Yeti Outdoor.

SKODA-Yeti-OutdoorVisiting the Willis Motor Company in South Ruislip, Middlesex, her local dealership, Elaine said, “I saw the Yeti Outdoor in the ice cube at Covent Garden and it looked amazing! I’m so excited to have won – and never dreamed I would even come close to the answer, let alone guessing it exactly. I didn’t calculate the answer very scientifically; I just estimated the size and number of blocks and added a bit for good luck! My two little boys are ecstatic about having a new car and there’s plenty of room to put their bikes in the back and explore new areas. It’s great having a shiny new car – we’re definitely looking forward to taking it on adventures and getting it a bit muddy!”

Sarah Chapman, Communications Manager for Skoda UK, said, “The new Yeti and Yeti Outdoor are designed to cater to busy lifestyles and the need to balance day-to-day practicality with the desire for more excitement. While the ŠKODA Yetiis perfect for city living, the Yeti Outdoor is built for adventure. We wish Elaine all the best with her new Yeti Outdoor and hope it brings her many an adventure.”
