Skoda Karoq joins blue-light fleets

Skoda has launched its latest addition to its emergency services vehicle line-up – a fully converted Skoda Karoq rapid response vehicle.

The manufacturer says that the “versatile” SUV lends itself “perfectly” to emergency service conversion thanks to its "practicality, multi-terrain abilities and ample space" for passengers and essential specialist equipment.

When fully converted the vehicle features 360-degree visibility thanks to LED signal lights built into the front screen, grille, tailgate and number plate – all complemented by a 100-amp three tone siren.

The recently updated Karoq is ready for order by blue light fleets and debuts a striking new look, latest technologies and five efficient EVO powertrains.

Skoda’s in-house converters ensure fleets are catered for with a fully integrated communications platform that works in harmony with its 8-inch infotainment system.

It is offered with a range of powertrains from Volkswagen Group’s EVO generation. Two diesel and three petrol powertrains provide between 110PS and 190PS, with a choice of six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmissions.

The 2.0 TSI 190PS petrol is fitted with all-wheel drive as standard, while the 2.0 TDI 150PS is available with front- or all-wheel drive.

Emergency services fleets will also benefit from a modified chassis equipped to deal with the demands placed on it during its working life on the road.
