Skoda Fabia showcases strengths as emergency response vehicle

The event saw the spotlight placed on the in fully liveried form at last week’s event in Telford.

This was the first glimpse of Fabia in police livery since Skoda was reappointed as an approved Crown Commercial Services supplier. The new framework now includes ‘Lot 7’ emergency service vehicles.

The model displayed was the Fabia Hatch 1.4 TDI 90PS SE with 83.1mpg combined fuel consumption figure. Around 10 of these models were taken away from NAPFM by emergency services customers for extended three-month road tests.

Speaking at the NAPFM Conference, Skoda emergency services technical sales manager, Steven Cowell, said: “The Skoda Fabia is a reliable, robust and affordable vehicle loaded with technology, therefore ideal for use in the emergency services. Simply put, it's the perfect combination of form and function. The size and versatility of the Fabia also lends itself well to inner city duty."
