Up to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds: Ford Mustang Mach-E GT electric cars appear in police

Published

on

Ford has been making cars for years that are used by police departments and other law enforcement agencies. The 5.0-liter V-8 Ford Mustang and Crown Victoria, as well as other Ford vehicles, were heavily used as police cars.

To meet the demand for zero-emission police vehicles, Ford has unveiled the all-electric Mustang Mach-E for testing by the Michigan State Police. Ford is building all-electric vehicles specifically for the police as part of its $ 30 billion electrification investment through 2025.

Ford is committed to demonstrating that a new electric vehicle can deliver impressive performance and operate in challenging police environments. The all-electric police car is based on the 2021 Mustang Mach-E.

As emissions regulations are tightened around the world, many police departments and law enforcement agencies are forced to switch to modern patrol vehicles. One of the potential drawbacks of an electric police vehicle is its long charging times and low range in pursuit situations. However, despite their shortcomings, electric vehicles are impressively dynamic.

The manufacturer did not specify the characteristics of the police Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, but the top version of the civilian car (Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition) accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. It is unlikely that the police received a less powerful version.

Tesla Model 3 becomes the first-ever electric car to lead the new car market in Europe

Published

on

The Tesla Model 3 was the first ever electric vehicle to lead new car sales in Europe, overtaking popular ICE models such as the Renault Clio and Volkswagen Golf.

Sales figures provided by research firm Jato Dynamics and published by Bloomberg show that Tesla is well ahead of its competitors, selling 24,591 Model 3 vehicles in September. The second place is occupied by Renault Clio with the result of 18,264 vehicles. It is also the first time that a car produced outside of Europe has become a bestseller in monthly sales.

Sales data suggest that the automotive market is slowly but surely shifting from combustion engines to electric vehicles. This is facilitated in no small part by various government subsidies to lower prices for electric vehicles, hybrid cars and vans. Sales of electric and hybrid vehicles accounted for 23% of total new sales in September, nearly double the year earlier for the same period, according to Bloomberg data.

A global chip shortage has resulted in new car sales generally declining, with the EU market falling 25% year on year and total sales in September 2021 to 964,800 vehicles. Not wanting to wait over a year for a new car, many consumers have turned to the used car market.

September was a successful month for Tesla, with sales accounting for 74% of Tesla’s total Q3 sales. The combined success of the Model 3 and Model Y allowed the company to secure a leading market share in electric vehicle sales of 24%, beating rivals Volkswagen at 22% and Stellantis at 13%.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has become the richest man in human history, with a fortune approaching $ 300 million.
