Police ‘impressed’ by electric car


The electric Vauxhall Ampera is being tested by community police officers in North Down

It might not be the most impressive weapon in the fight against crime.

But it is hoped the PSNI’s new electric car will be the most efficient.

The liveried plug-in Vauxhall Ampera is being tested by community police officers in North Down as part of the force’s efforts to go green.

“The Vauxhall Ampera is part of a PSNI pilot scheme looking at the pros and cons of using electric vehicles. Similar vehicles have been requested from other manufacturers and following their assessment PSNI will consider whether to add the electric vehicle to the fleet,” said Marcus Belshaw head of transport at the PSNI.

The four-seated Ampera has a hybrid engine consisting of electric batteries capable of about 60 miles from a full charge, supported by a 1.4 litre petrol engine which means it should not run out of power in the middle of a car chase.
