Looks like a chopped down Mach-E. I like it.
Unfortunately that looks like it is a Chinese/Ford venture and China only distribution

Generically VAG, which is exactly what it is.

Noticeable that a number of police forces here in the UK are choosing the swifter Skodas for use as unmarked road policing cars. They obviously see the benefits, both in speed and cost.

That reminds me of the time I was working with a UK-based HGV manufacturer.
We had a request from a Fire Service for base models for a future tender - with one of the criteria being a 0-60mph time below a certain threshold. As you can imagine - acceleration is never normally a factor in designing a HGV, so road tests were required.

I imagine something similar is carried out by police forces - performance and load capacity are factors ahead of comfort and refinement.

When I read this, I automatically thought of Dennis who used to be one of the major suppliers of fire tenders, and it wasn't until I looked them up that I realised that they haven't been making them for about 15 years. Blooming heck, time just flies by without you knowing.

Less bits inside to break and to add weight as well I guess? I get why Audi feels the need to offer full motion, vibrating and heated/cooled seats but offer the removal and replacement. Seats weigh a TON for what that give
