West Midlands Police go green with new cars | B31 Voices

West Midlands Police have taken delivery of 30 new electric cars.

The force became the first in the country to operate an electric patrol car in 2009 and last summer trialled the Nissan Leaf on all 10 local policing units (LPUs) across the area.
Following the success of the trials and feedback from officers who use the cars on a daily basis, West Midlands Police has negotiated with Nissan to lease the Leaf for the next three years.

The 30 vehicles will be split evenly across the force area and used as ‘diary’ cars – attending pre-arranged appointments with victims and other members of the public who have contacted police.
Director of Resources, David Wilkin, said: “The cars can carry five people, will be liveried with the force crest and will help to reduce our carbon footprint as they have zero emissions.

“As well as being greener, the Nissan Leaf costs a fraction of the cost per mile to run compared to a petrol car so will provide significant savings on fuel costs.”
