Skoda creates canine-friendly Superb to support police dog units

Skoda Superb dog unit

Skoda UK has created a canine-friendly version of its Superb to comply with new standards set out by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).

The upgraded Superb Estate has been designed to transport general purpose police dogs, as well as trained drugs-search and explosives-detection dogs.

Available in either two- or four-wheel drive versions, each vehicle goes through a police vehicle conversion service, with bespoke interior features to keep the dogs safe, cool, and comfortable.

Eight vehicles have already been ordered by one customer, and a demo version hits the road this week for a year-long tour of forces across the country.

The tour kicks off in South Yorkshire with different police forces trialling the car over a period of weeks.
