Tesla releases findings from Model 3 police patrol car test

by Fred Lambert

Tesla has released findings from its test program of a Model 3 that the automaker custom-built as a police patrol car in the UK.

Several electric vehicles, especially Tesla vehicles, are becoming increasingly popular with police departments and emergency services.

Any type of use that requires a lot of mileage is going to benefit greatly from going electric with important gas and maintenance savings.

We previously reported on the Bargersville Police Department in Indiana, which purchased several Tesla Model 3 vehicles.

In most cases, police departments purchase the Model 3 vehicles and modify them to turn the electric cars into police patrol cars.
