Skoda will provide bespoke blue-light conversions for its new fully electric Enyaq iV model, from July.
Offered alongside the existing range of blue-light Skoda models, the Enyaq is the brand’s first fully electric model.
The Enyaq iV is available to blue-light fleets in two power variants - a 60 and 80 - offering a choice of 62kWh and 82 kWh batteries respectively.
Initially offered with two-wheel drive (all-wheel drive coming soon) and delivering an output of up to 204PS and 310Nm of torque, the Enyaq iV is able to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 8.5 seconds and delivers a top speed of 99mph.
It has a WLTP combined range of up to 333 miles and fast charging up to 80% in approximately 38 minutes.
Skoda believes these figures will appeal to blue-light services looking to ensure that their vehicles are always ready to perform. It says emergency service customers will be further enticed by the relative simplicity of the Enyaq iV’s platform and powertrain.
With fewer moving and perishable parts, the vehicle requires less frequent maintenance and servicing, increasing available operational time and improving fleet efficiency.
The Enyaq iV has a ground clearance of 186mm and 15.4- and 16.7-degree approach and departure angles. Off road versatility is set to be further enhanced in future by the arrival of an all-wheel drive variant.
A luggage capacity of 585 litres – or up to 1,710 litres with the rear seats down – provides room for blue-light customers to store and transport vital life-saving emergency equipment such as oxygen tanks, ventilators and other essential equipment.
Skoda’s emergency service conversion includes 360-degree lighting and a full integration of the emergency services’ communication platform within the car’s existing infotainment touchscreen. It ensures all functionality, such as the lighting, can be controlled through one central accessible platform.
Individual customer conversion requirements can also be accommodated via the brand’s approved specialist convertors.
