When one talks about going green as far as transportation is concerned, this includes even the cops. And for New York, the authorities over there will now be getting new Chevy Volt patrol cars which should help promote the use of electric vehicles over the standard fuel-powered police cars being ranted today.
70 new plug-in patrol cars have been added to the NY police fleet, which should also help cut down the fuel consumption expenses of police cars. So not only is the development a point for the environment, it also helps render a lot of savings for the New York Police Department.
NYC purchased a total of 50 Volt vehicles, ten EV Transit Cargo vans from Ford, and ten EV Navi-star E utility trucks.
