UK police prefer the Hyundai as their supplier

Because the times are continuously changing, in the police field, beginning with custodian helmeted policemen, who were driving in some Morris Minors and Ford Anglias, this situation having taken place in the 1950s and the 1960s so that in the 1970s, they were driving Ford Consuls and Rover 3500s. The 1980s were announcing policemen together with their women mates cruising around in Rover SD1s and Land Rovers.
But a strange thing occurred in the late 1980s when Rover, one of the most British of the car producers started a serious rebadging for Hondas. Then, in the 1990s, the Germans began to buy British beloved marquees and even more strange to that, the UK police started to buy Mitsubishi.
Currently, the year 2010 presents the UK police buying Hyundai`s new vehicles, the car brand being awarded as the perfect supplier by the National Association of Police Fleet Managers.
This way, Hyundai company enjoys big sales and publicity boost, for each year 2000 cars are bought by London`s Metropolitan Police and other 7800 cars are acquired to supply the work outside the city.
Tony Whitehorn, the managing director of Hyundai UK states that it is extremely important to offer the best possible package, especially when money comes from taxpayers. Also, the reliability, the quality and high-performance of the Hyundai vehicles have made such a good impression, that they have been given the green light to carry a blue light.
Hyundai sources state that the most required vehicles are more likely to be the i20, i30, ix35, Santa Fe and iLoad van.
In the picture, one can see an ix35 Tucson in police livery.
