Most special services are investing in eco-friendly cars in order to have a positive approach to their intervention.
Emergency services will soon be powered by battery electric technology as ŠKODA adds the brand’s first all-electric SUV – the Enyaq iV – to its blue-light squad.
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. Offered in 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.
With a WLTP combined range of up to 333 miles on a single charge, fast charging up to 80 per cent in approximately 38 minutes, Enyaq iV brings electric mobility to emergency service fleets across the UK.
ŠKODA’s iV range – that includes Octavia iV and Superb iV – will receive the brand’s bespoke emergency service conversion treatment. This includes 360-degree lighting and a full integration of the emergency services’ communication platform within ŠKODA’s existing infotainment touchscreen. It ensures all functionality, such as the lighting, can be controlled through one central accessible platform.
