The deployment of the BMW i3 hatches has gone well, Vartan Yegiyan told NBC4 Los Angeles. With range of just 81mi (130km) and a 0 to 100km/h (0 to 62mph) time of around 8 seconds, the i3 fleet is being used for non-emergency duty.
The LAPD has two Tesla Model S sedans on loan. One is painted in the LAPD’s signature black and white livery, but is restricted to community events and the like as it isn’t kitted out for police work.
Tesla and the LAPD are negotiating to have the second all-black car kitted out to police spec.
