I understand (or at least I hope I do) people who are eco freaks. But I think that everything has a limit. Well, such a limit is this case here. While some folks over in the USA will be driving the 2011 Chevrolet Caprice as a police car, the British police officers will be driving a Mitsubishi i-MiEV , an all electric car made by the Japanese automaker. I am honestly extremely curious which departments of the British police will use the Mitsubishi i-MiEV to fight crime. Hopefully not the highway police. It seems that the police version Mitsubishi i-MiEV has been presented back in September at the National Police Show of Great Britain because the British police wanted to see how well the car performs, according to the Japanese automaker.
The West Midlands Police will be the first department of the British police to run the all electric micro car in full operational use. The police version of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV will arrive in November this year while the first fleet of cars will arrive in December.
The electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV manages to reach a maximum speed of 130 km/h while being able to have a driving range of 100 miles on a full charge. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV has four seats and gets its power from an electric motor capable of developing 64 horsepower and 180 Nm of torque. The car also benefits from a rear wheel drive system.
I am still hoping that the electric Mitsubishi i-MiEV will not be used by the highway police, because it would be humiliated by practically all the cars. Let us hope that the British police has some smart people in charge and they will direct the Mitsubishi i-MiEV for some lighter tasks, and not the pursuing of high speed cars.
