2021 Skoda Superb Combi Gets A Kiwi Police Suit, Will Patrol New Zealand’s Roads Starting This June

Skoda has signed an agreement with the New Zealand government, part of which they will deliver 2,000 units of the Superb Combi by 2025 to be used by the police force.

Chosen from 11 other vehicles shortlisted by law enforcement officers, with the selection criteria including performance, braking, emissions, serviceability and total running costs, the first 100 cars will be in service by the end of June. Subsequently, almost 400 more will follow before the end of the year.

“The Superb Combi demonstrates its reliability and robustness every day as a police and emergency vehicle in numerous countries”, said Skoda’s Board Member for Sales and Marketing, Martin Jahn. “We are delighted that the New Zealand police also appreciate these qualities and will be relying on Skoda vehicles in their daily work for years to come.”

New Zealand’s police force went for front- and all-wheel drive versions of the Czech brand’s mid-size wagon. All of them will be wearing police livery, complemented by emergency lights and other such equipment.

Skoda is no stranger to this field of activity, as it is represented in the fleets of 30 European authorities. The list counts the United Kingdom, Austria, Serbia, Croatia, Portugal, France and the Netherlands. The most common choices are the Octavia compact and Superb mid-size models, as well as the smaller Scala that is in service in the UK. In its home market, the automaker has delivered over 20,000 vehicles to the police and Ministry of Interior since 1993, including the modern Octavia, Superb and Kodiaq mid-size SUV.
