Skoda has officially started delivering Superb Combi wagons to the New Zealand Police. The first cars will reach Wellington in the near future, and the total fleet of Czech brand cars will exceed 2,000 units.
A tender for the supply of new company vehicles for New Zealand law enforcement was announced last year. In total, 27 different models from seven manufacturers took part in the competition.
12 cars made it to the “final”, which were then tested by police officers in real conditions. Dynamic performance, reliability and operating cost were among the main criteria for victory. As a result, the New Zealand police ordered 2 thousand Superb Combi cars with both front and all-wheel drive.
Skoda noted that its cars are already used by the police and emergency services of about 30 European countries, including Austria, Serbia, the Netherlands, France, Portugal and the UK.
