UK police add dozens of Nissan Leaf electric cars to fleet

The electric vehicles will be deployed as ‘diary’ cars, which police use to attend pre-arranged meetings with victims of crime or locals who contact the local police force.

The force believes the Nissan Leaf is well suited to a ‘diary’ role, despite the limited range and long recharge times inherent to electric cars. Diary cars typically average 40 to 45 miles per day, so the Leaf’s 124-mile range should prove more than sufficient, even if somebody forgets to plug the thing in overnight.

Ten local policing units (LPUs) will run three diary car Leafs each. Each LPU will be kitted out with dedicated charging points.

Bob Jones, Police and Crime Commissioner for West Midlands Police said: “We welcome the new LEAFs, which fit in perfectly with the operational requirements of diary cars and will significantly cut our fuel costs while also reducing our carbon footprint.”
