Ford unveils its first plug-in hybrid police vehicle

Ford unveils its first plug-in hybrid police vehicle

Unlike the hybrid interceptor or the new F-150 Police Responder, this auto isn't pursuit-rated - which means it hasn't been evaluated by the Michigan State and LA County police for robustness, grip, braking, etc.

The boys in blue are going green, with Ford's latest police vehicle promising a zero-emissions model that it claims could save plenty on fuel costs.

The new vehicle, officially named the Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Sedan, marks the first time the automaker has made a auto that can run on only electric power specifically for police and other government authorities.

That, Ford suggests, could be enough for an entire shift without resorting to gas. In the case where it would be necessary to travel a distance in excess of this autonomy, emphasize that a four-cylinder engine of 2.0 L comes in reinforcement, which extends the total battery life at approximately 800 kilometers. It's the first police vehicle that can run exclusively on electric power, potentially earning it brownie points from environmentalists, unlike the other Ford police hybrids unveiled earlier this year. The Blue Oval thinks the setup would be ideal for officials like detectives or police and fire chiefs. Ford says that a level two charger will refill the battery in about 2.5 hours, but most authorities will likely be able to charge the hybrid using standard 120-volt wall outlet instead.

The interior features "anti-stab plates" in the seats. The rear seats are vinyl, as is the flooring.

Customers can also order a variety of optional equipment for law enforcement work, including several emergency lighting packages. Some of the most unique pieces of equipment include a trunk ventilation system and a feature that turns off interior lighting. Plus, there are extra mounting points around the cabin and red and white task lights in the overhead console.
