Los Angeles Police Choose The 2016 BMW i3

Electric vehicles are all the rage right now! So much so that many police departments are looking into how they can incorporate them into their fleet. The Los Angeles Police department recently held a field trial including the 2016 BMW i3 and other electric vehicles. But the 2016 BMW i3 rose to the top and won the bid to supply the Los Angeles Police department with 100 of these vehicles. Want to know more? Keep reading for additional information.

The Los Angeles Police Department cited a combination of EPA rated best-in-class efficiency, reliability and state of the art ConnectedDrive services as the reason why the 2016 BMW i3 was chosen.

"The attributes of the BMW i3 position it to excel as the ideal vehicle for municipal organizations. The performance and technical capabilities, such as the BMW i3 acceleration, and its ConnectedDrive integration, are perfectly suited to transform the future mobility of the Los Angeles Police Department while also reducing their carbon footprint," said Ludwig Willisch, President and CEO of BMW of North America. 

"We should be thinking green in everything we do - and these new EVs show how local government can lead," said Mayor Garcetti. "Our sustainability plan pushes L.A. to speed adoption of greener practices and technologies, which also save money and resources."  

These 2016 BMW i3 police vehicles will hit the streets in the spring and will be used as the non-emergency fleet.
