Skoda Kodiaq RS enters ambulance serviceApril 5, 2020
At the service of air ambulance in Midland (UK), two high-performance crossovers Skoda Kodiaq RS 4×4 entered. The machines are used as ground support for helicopters, personnel and crews.
Because air ambulance helicopters do not fly in the dark, a charitable organization uses these powerful crossovers to respond to emergencies. Thanks to the use of these powerful machines, in the first three months of 2020, the organization was able to greatly improve its performance in terms of response to incoming calls.
The charitable organization needed a vehicle that could drive to hard-to-reach places, and also had enough space for transporting rescue equipment that rescuers might need.
The Kodiaq RS is equipped with a 2.06-liter 236 horsepower diesel engine with four-wheel drive. Both cars have been adapted to the requirements of the ambulance service.
“More than ever, it’s important that our intensive care fleet can meet all the necessary requirements,” said Richard Clayton, director of ambulance operations at Warwickshire and Northamptonshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, UK. “The reliability, versatility and power of the two new high-performance Kodiaq RS crossovers will enable us to continue to respond quickly to emergencies.”
