Fremont Police Department Announces New Tesla for Vehicle Fleet

Several police departments have been experimenting with Tesla Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) electric vehicles in their lineups. The cars are fast, require very little maintenance and have a much lower cost of ownership over the lifetime of the vehicle compared to a gas car.

Now as shared by Tesmanian, the Fremont Police Department in California has added a new Tesla to its fleet: a new Model Y crossover. An earlier trial run with the Tesla Model 3 showed the department it could save big bucks running a Tesla as an official police vehicle. 

Today, @FremontPD announced the deployment of a #Tesla Model Y to its #police fleet. The Department’s fleet of #hybrid and electric cars features over forty vehicles and four charging stations. Learn more by visiting https://t.co/SxKafgElHK. pic.twitter.com/LyCVJAS2kV
