Fremont Police may be the first police department in the US with a Tesla in its fleet. The agency, which already owns a party of “unorthodox police vehicles” that includes Ford F-150s, purchased the used 2014 Tesla Model S 85D last year for $61,478.50 and has been modifying it for duty since: additions include an overhead lightbar, armored door panels, and push bumper. It’s part of Fremont’s mission to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent next year. Modifications to ready the Tesla for police service exceed the price of a Ford Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility, but Fremont projects the combined price and running costs of said Ford over the average police cruiser's service life of five years to exceed that of the Tesla's preparation cost. Electricity to charge the Tesla will come at no cost to Fremont, as the department has 872 kilowatts worth of solar power at its headquarters.
