Swiss police are ordering Tesla Model X police cars for active duty

Swiss police are ordering Tesla Model X police cars for active duty

Police from Toronto demonstrated Tesla Model X in their patrol car colors to show what it might be like to actually use them. But now police from Switzerland’s Basel-Stadt police force are actually ordering Model X vehicles for active duty.

The first of these will be delivered this fall, with seven included in the initial order, according to Electrek. And while the upfront cost of the vehicle is more than the average cruiser (the Basel-Stadt pays $97, on average for its current diesel-powered patrol vehicles, while a Model X P100D as configured for police use will be around $147,), they should make up the difference in maintenance and fuel costs over time.

After the first seven cars ship out to the Swiss police this fall, the remaining fleet is slated to be delivered sometime in 2019. As for why the Model X was selected in the end, the Basel-Stadt cited its ecological benefits, as well as cost savings over the life of the vehicle, as well as its storage capacity.
