Tesla has prepared a Model 3-based utility vehicle for the British police, which is to be Tesla’s trial balloon in the local emergency vehicle market.

This isn’t the first Model 3-based police car, but it has previously been retrofitted by third-party contractors. The automaker has now completed the preparation on its own.

According to the source, many police departments figured out and figured out that they could save by upgrading their fleet to Tesla electric cars, especially Model 3. For example, the Bargersville department in Indiana, which acquired several Tesla Model 3 sedans, saved already in the first full year of use. over $ 6,000. Tesla Model Y electric vehicles were recently acquired by Fremont and Spokane for use as patrol cars. In all cases, the departments purchased civilian versions of Tesla cars and modified them after purchase.

Specifications for the car, unveiled by Tesla UK, which the company says will be available for testing and evaluation by all UK emergency services, have not been disclosed. The source suggests that the base was the Model 3 Performance variant. It has a range of 480 km without recharging, a maximum speed of 260 km / s, and an acceleration time to 100 km / h of 3.1 s, which makes the Model 3 Performance more than suitable for the duties of a patrol car.

Note that in recent years, the Model 3 has been the best-selling electric vehicle and sometimes the best-selling vehicle in the UK.

A range of more than 1000 km and fast charging

CATL, a well-known Chinese manufacturer of traction batteries for electric vehicles, has announced a new generation of batteries called Qilin. They are characterized by volume efficiency (72% – and, according to the manufacturer, this is a world record), as well as high energy density – up to 255 W h / kg. Qilin cells are capable of storing 13% more energy than 4680 cells in Tesla electric vehicles.
