Los Angeles Police Dept. (Hollywood Division) just started testing out Tesla police cruisers. Love to see how this works out - - shouldn't have problems catching the bad guys! Any other police departments running Teslas?
Abomination! Such a beautiful vehicle should never suffer such evil!
I hope they don't get over the air performance updates.
Many examples worldwide.
wouldnt lose any range while sitting stopped on the freeway in a traffic jam
@Jim - well, if the A/C is on, that's energy use even in a traffic jam. Same with the car just being powered on... computers running using juice...
But yeah, way better than idling engines pumping out exhaust....
I do, though, cringe at the thought of performing a pit maneuver with a tesla... I guess they'd fit a big "push bumper" on the front that would protect the sides a bit... or something... I'm guessing... I'll shut up now. heh.
solid state computer and the screen doesnt use much juice
if you need AC, roll down the window
(i know, that takes juice also)
Range won’t be an issue as long as there are destination chargers at the local donut shop. ;)

Fremont been doing that for a while... for obvious reasons... :)https://www.fremontpolice.org/electricvehicle
K9 units could always use Dog Mode
What with the ridiculous amounts of car chases in LA this could be rather entertaining.
Still Grinning ;-)
