Police Switching To Electric Vehicles?

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The NYPD has added a new eco-friendly ride to its fleet: a Tesla Model 3, The Post has learned.

The luxury electric vehicle — which came with a $47,740 price tag — will be used by the department’s highway patrol division, city records show.

The all-wheel-drive Model 3 bought by the NYPD has a range of about 350 miles on a single charge and does 0-to-60 in 4.2 seconds, according to Tesla’s website.

The department, which acquired the ride last month, said the long-range version of the car “is optimized for police highway patrol operations,” according to the procurement papers.

“So much for budget cuts,” a rank-and-file police source quipped to The Post when told about the new luxury ride.

The cost of the Tesla comes in a bit higher than the other green vehicles the department has acquired over the last few years as part of its plan to cut down on carbon emissions.
