  • Škoda’s K-9 Kodiaq: New police dog vehicle joins blue-light fleet




    • ŠKODA adds specialist Kodiaq police dog vehicle to its blue-light fleet
    • Bespoke SUV offers raft of dog-friendly features including air conditioned dog kennels
    • Kodiaq dog vehicle complies with RSPCA and DEFRA requirements
    • Vehicles available to order now


    The state-of-the-art Kodiaq is the latest model in ŠKODA’s line-up to be converted into a specially designed police dog unit.

    Police forces looking for a versatile vehicle that can safely transport canine teams to emergency situations now have the ultimate solution. The Kodiaq dog vehicle comes fitted with a range of driver assistance and safety features that ensure a police dog can travel safely and securely to any emergency.

    The large SUV provides greater visibility for the driver and offers increased ground clearance to help enable access to remote locations. The Kodiaq is available with a choice of four engines: two petrol and three diesel with power outputs ranging from 150PS to 239PS. Forces can choose between two or four-wheel drive and manual or DSG transmissions.

    Some of the standout features on the car include two air-conditioned dog kennels with temperature monitoring, purpose built into the rear of the vehicle.

    The dog can also evacuate the vehicle quickly if needed thanks to a front escape hatch with drop glass built into each kennel. Additional emergency equipment can be stored in an area in front of the kennels.

    It’s not just dogs the vehicle caters for, it also comes fitted with all of the necessary blue-light requirements such as 360’ emergency services lighting and an engine Run Lock system, which keeps the engine running while the key is removed from the ignition. The function enables a useful power supply for lights, radios or safety equipment computers, without the battery going flat.

    The conversion has been built in conjunction with the Policing Authority and complies with RSPCA and DEFRA requirements, and is available for order now.

    Henry Williams, Head of Fleet, ŠKODA UK, said: “We know police dogs play a pivotal role in an emergency service response; therefore, they need an environment that provides the appropriate level of safety and comfort to get them to and from an emergency. The versatile Kodiaq police dog vehicle has all of the necessary features to ensure police dogs are well looked after when going about their vital work.”

    Bespoke conversions for emergency service fleets can be provided through ŠKODA’s ‘one-stop’ shop package. Alongside hassle-free finance solutions, ŠKODA fleet can provide the vehicles fully converted to suit specific requirements, and fleet managers have the peace of mind that the conversion, breakdown recovery, service, maintenance and repair requirements are built into one package.

    Re: Removed inlet manifold - should I spray carb cleaner down inlet valves?

    Cheers Crasher. Is it worth spraying through the ports with the cleaner you suggest or just leave alone?

    if it is an empty slot, is there a way to add an additional tweeter in it by tapping either into the center speaker or the side tweeter - perhaps by also

    No way! If you spray anything volatile in there it can pool and when you start it, the engine will run away and can then pull oil from the sump and....

    The 4F is horribly prone to water ingress electrical problems, sometimes the e boxes are so full of water I have to use a pella pump to empty them.
