From the kindness of Skoda's heart, they have refreshed the London Air Ambulance's fleet of on-road vehicles. Here is something sweet to brighten up the middle of your week.

Heroes of the skies... on the ground

These rapid response cars assist 'green' paramedics when the going gets tough. They turn up before the helicopter comes with a trauma doctor and can give life-saving treatment to those who need it the most, even when the Air Ambulance is grounded - mostly in dark or bad conditions.

In the whole of the UK, there are 20 air ambulance charities who rely on donations and volunteers for all the work they do. It costs around £2,500 for ONE flight to a critically ill patient... so, you can see why it is amazing when a dealership helps with a few new vehicles.

Skoda UK has been doing this for the past 12 years, and looks like they have vowed for at least another 3 years, they will give the London Air Ambulance 3 new Octavia vRS estates and 2 Kodiaqs in full NHS livery - all set up and ready to rock.

Skoda UK’s head of fleet, Henry Williams said: “London’s Air Ambulance service places heavy a demand on its vehicles and it’s fantastic to see that they continue to perform excellently under pressure. The Kodiaq will be a new addition to their fleet and its combination of high-performance, 4x4 capability and fuel economy will prove a resilient partner to the team.”

See, the world doesn't seem to terrible after all...

  • I think London, the capital of Britain, should be using Jags. I-Pace, because they’re cooler, cleaner & have much more presence... than a Kodiaq.
