The police department explained that the Tesla Model Ys have a longer lifespan than. The gas-powered cars they currently use, namely the Dodge Durango.
They say electric cars can last 10 to 12 years. Meanwhile, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) police cars only have a lifespan of 5 to 6 years.
However, the police department added that they will inevitably pay a higher price. Currently, a Dodge Durango car costs about 39,000 USD. Meanwhile, a Tesla Model Y will cost $52,290.
This is a big difference because EVs are more expensive than regular police patrol cars.
Tesla’s first police car in Canada arrives
In addition to Maryland, Canada is also using the advanced Tesla Model Y as its police vehicle.
The mayor of Bridgewater, David Mitchell. was told that this had been confirmed.
“I am thrilled the Council of @TownBridgewater last night approved the purchase of a @Tesla police car. One of the first in Atlantic Canada!” said the official through his Twitter post.
He added that Tesla Model Y police cars will be less expensive than regular cars. This indicates that more and more police departments are continuing to adopt the burgeoning electric vehicle technology.
There is a high probability that other police departments in different parts of. The US will do the same, which could help reduce the growing carbon footprint of their regions.
