The world recently caught its first sighting of UPfit's contribution to the next generation of police vehicles, via Unplugged Performance. With changing times come evolving needs law enforcement and EVs are the next logical step. The UPfit patrol car is a Tesla Model Y, designed to always be in an "on" state, supporting onboard electronics and always being ready to respond. A conventional police car can use thousands of litres of fuel yearly when idling, which police cars do a lot, and an EV already starts the saving just by doing nothing. Why Tesla? It's simple, Tesla's dominance in high-volume EV production makes it a clear leader in the field, and the cars boast low ownership costs, minimal downtime, robust infrastructure support, and a proven track record of safety and performance. The peace of mind that law enforcement demands is fully met by Tesla's offerings. Tesla vehicles are also readily available, primed for immediate upfitting, and a big bonus is Tesla's charge-port innovation being adopted as the new North American Charging Standard by competing brands worldwide.
Take a look at the YouTube video that sees a bunch of people who know about these things discussing why an all-electric fleet of police vehicles makes sense, and how it can help save police departments some good money, and keep safe too: World's First 100% EV Police Fleet Saves Taxpayers $300k | Unplugged Performance
