UK Police Forces with all-electric i MiEVs from December
The all-electric Mitsubishi i MiEV city car has joined the UK Police Forces. Showcased at the National Police Show in September, the i MiEV in full police livery has a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 81mph, which is ideal for urban policing. The Police i MiEV can carry four adult passengers and full police equipment.
Managing Director, Lance Bradley, commented: "The i MiEVs have been in the UK on trial for almost a year now and we are delighted that Police Forces in the UK are able to see that the future of zero emissions driving requires no compromise."
The first Police i MiEV will hit the city streets in December 2009, with West Midlands Police being the first force to run the vehicle in full operational use.
