At the 2010 Paris Auto Show, Skoda's second generation line of GreenLine hybrids called the Octavia Green E made its debut along with the new Skoda Energy Producing tiles. These tiles are especially unique in the sense that they use human footsteps to produce energy.

The tiles feature a glass-like design, making the Skoda Energy Producing Tiles not just environmentally friendly, but also aesthetically pleasing. With capabilities of producing 6 to 8 watts of energy from a single person walking across a section of tiles, there is no telling how far this steptronic energy can go in the future.
