2018 Ford Police Responders Hybrid, The First Hybrid to American police
The 2018 Ford Police Responders Hybrid Sedan will be the first hybrid to assume the role of American police and her debut will take place on the streets of New York and Los Angeles. The various departments concerned will be able to order it from spring, with first deliveries planned for summer. An important project that falls within the investment of 4.5 billion dollars made by Ford to give increasing importance to vehicles with alternative powers and that, within the next five years, should give birth to 13 new models electrified. “The electrification of future generations of vehicles is central to our commitment to environmental sustainability,” said Joe Hinrichs, President of Ford America. “Being one of the leading manufacturers of electrified vehicles, we are committed to providing cars, pickups, and SUVs best not only for our customers but also to the environment and society”.

The ecological patrol. Ford, which is the main supplier of cars to American police, providing 63% of vehicles in service, strengthens its relationship with law enforcement. The 2.0-liter engine uses a Police Responders Atkinson cycle Hybrid joined by an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery from 7.6 kWh, which guarantees an autonomy in electric mode of about 19 miles (30 km).
A solution that, according to official data, should provide twice the mileage compared to the classic 3.7-litre V6 engine, Interceptor, and a fuel savings of approximately 3,900 dollars a year for each wheel.
The importance of China. The formalization of this news was also an opportunity, by the manufacturer, in order to confirm a growing attention to the Chinese market, where, by 2025, there will be multiple proposals eco-friendly: the goal of the group is to electrify the 70% of the planned models for the local market within a few years.
