Škoda Scala now available for emergency services
The Škoda Scala is now available on the brand’s ‘one-stop shop’ for blue-light fleets that includes full vehicle conversion.
Škoda has introduced a ‘one-stop’ shop package for emergency services fleets, which allows vehicles to be outright purchased or financed through Volkswagen Financial Services. Fleet managers now have the additional option of contract hire or they can opt for a leasing package.
Škoda fleet can also provide the vehicles fully converted to suit specific requirements, and the conversion, breakdown recovery, service, maintenance and repair requirements are built into one package.
The Scala’s driver assistance and safety features – including Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Detect, Side Assist, Rear Traffic Alert and a five-star Euro NCAP rating – as well as an ergonomic interior design and space contribute to the car’s suitability for emergency services, Škoda added.
When fully converted the Scala features 360-degree visibility thanks to powerful LED signal lights built into the front screen, grille, tailgate and number plate – all complemented by a 100-amp three tone siren.
Henry Williams, head of fleet, Škoda UK, said: “Our partnership with emergency services teams stretches back over a century. It’s that extensive knowledge in the sector that makes Škoda 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.”
The Scala is available with three engine options (two petrol and one diesel) with power outputs ranging from 115hp to 150hp.
