NEW YORK — The Ford Motor Company has unveiled its first plug-in hybrid police vehicle.
The battery will take an estimated 2.5 hours to charge on a Level 2 charger.
The interior features “anti-stab plates” in the seats. Agencies can also add additional features such as spot lamps and the ability to turn off interior lighting for surveillance purposes.
Orders for the vehicle will open in December, and delivery is expected to start next summer.
