Skoda Continues Emergency Connection

Wed 7th Aug 2019

Skoda’s long relationship with the UK emergency services will continue after the Czech company revealed it is adding the Scala hatchback to its range.

With the company’s cars already proving to be flexible and affordable across all three of the main emergency services of police, ambulance and fire, the Scale will be a welcome addition.

Featuring Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Lane Assist, as well as a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the Scala will be one of the safest vehicles in the ‘blue light fleet’.

"Our partnership with emergency services teams stretches back over a century," said Henry Williams, head of fleet for Skoda UK. "It’s that extensive knowledge in the sector that makes Skoda a reliable partner for both technologically advanced cars and value for money, and Scala, our most connected car to date, more than fits the bill."

Of course, the Scala will feature a range of special modifications for the emergency services which will be unavailable to the normal road cars. These include full LED light signals built into the front screen, grille, tailgate and number plate and of course a 100 amp three tone siren to ensure the public can hear as well as see the emergency vehicle approaching.
