Fox: “Ford has a new way for police departments to save money while fighting crime. Its new Fusion-based Police Responder delivers an estimated 38 mpg combined, making it more than twice as efficient as its Taurus-based Interceptor Sedan and Explorer-based Interceptor SUV.
According to Ford, each one of the midsize sedans would save $3,877 annually on fuel at $2.50 per gallon, and much more if gas prices go up.
Primarily aimed at urban departments, where patrol cars are driven at low speeds and spend a lot of time idling, the Police Responder is also the first pursuit-rated hybrid cop car ever offered.”
Ford: “The industry’s first pursuit-rated hybrid police car, the all-new Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan, is part of a $4.5 billion Ford investment to make electric vehicles that give customers greater capability, productivity and performance – plus better fuel economy. The plans are part of Ford’s expansion to be an auto and a mobility company, including leading in electric and self-driving vehicles, and new mobility solutions.”
Ford has about 2/3 of the market share of police vehicles in America.
