The police could get an electric car with supercar acceleration
Typically you might laugh at the thought of the police driving electric cars – you have done when you’ve seen the BMW i3 haven’t you? But the latest electric car being evaluated by UK police forces is the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
It’s a big first for Ford in many ways, and a couple of firsts for this V8 Mustang-loving EV sceptic too
There’s a number of firsts here. This is the first mass-market car-maker’s first fully electric vehicle. It’s also the first dedicated electric car from Ford rather than the ‘electric version’ of a regular combustion-engined car. Plus the first electric car to bear the name ‘Mustang’ (though one suspects not the last) and the first time an electric car has adopted the alias and, to some extent, assumed the persona of a muscle car. Which, if you think about it, should essentially be its absolute antithesis, arch-nemesis even!
