Ford Creates First-Ever Plug-In Hybrid Police Vehicle
Ford has been doing a ton for our nation’s Boys in Blue over the last couple years, creating the first-ever pursuit-rated pickup truck and the first-ever pursuit-rated hybrid police cruiser. Now, Ford is helping America’s non-pursuit law enforcement personnel by creating the world’s first-ever Special Service Plug-In Hybrid police vehicle. Now, without further ado, let’s check out all there is to know about Ford’s impressive new offering for police and fire chiefs, detectives and other non-pursuit law enforcement personnel.

Ford hasn’t released the engine specs for its all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan, but they have told us about the other aspects of its powertrain. More specifically, the all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan features a 7.6-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery that can go up to 21 miles on a full charge while also reaching speeds as high as 85 miles per hour on battery power alone. All told, the total hybrid-electric driving range for the all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan is over 500 miles. And law enforcement won’t have to worry about special charging apparatuses, either, as the all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan can be charged using a normal 120-volt wall outlet. But if law enforcement personnel want to charge it even faster, a 240-volt level 2 charger that can fully charge the all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan in just two-and-a-half hours is also available.
What’s Inside the All-New Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan?
The interior of the all-new Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Police Sedan features heavy-duty cloth front seats complete with rear anti-stab plates, rear vinyl seats and flooring, a reinforced top tray on which to mount equipment, a metal console mounting plate and red and white task lighting for the overhead console. There’s also a dark-car feature that allows law enforcement to turn off all interior and dash cluster lights completely for surveillance purposes.
