The Portuguese National Institute for Search and Rescue has chosen the robust all-wheel drive Volkswagen Amarok for its quick response team which carry essential life saving equipment. Each vehicle has been refitted with an emergency lighting bar, racking for surf boards and an exclusive exterior design inspired by the original Volkswagen SAR pick-up concept.
“This is a great example of the versatility our new pick-up offers fleet customers and the emergency services sector,” said Al Hemmings, National Sales Manager, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
“We are delighted to add the new Amarok off-roader to our range of commercial vehicles this year which, with the Volkswagen 4MOTION system also available on our Caddy Maxi, Transporter and Caravelle ranges, means we now offer an extensive and versatile choice of all-wheel drive vehicles from vans and people carriers to a robust pick-up,” he added.
The new Amarok was launched across Europe earlier this year and is available as a double cab pick-up with four doors and space for five adults. If you want to lear more about the rugged utilitarian vehicle, feel free to check our drive test and state your own opinion.
