I think Tesla company, the main employer of Fremont, allocated car police of his native city from his own bounty? Not at all: the management bought an electric car with taxpayers ‘ money. Moreover, a new machine means were found – the previous liftback purchased on the secondary market: the machine 2014 release cost of 61,5 thousand dollars with all taxes and fees.
Approximately 4,5 thousand dollars was spent on special equipment: “chandelier”, ramming bumpers and ballistic protection. That is Tesla Model S cost the police Department Fremont at least 65 thousand dollars and 25 thousand more than the cost of a specially trained police officer, the Ford Explorer. However, the Department believe that the standard five-year lifespan patrol Tesla will save 32 thousand dollars on gasoline and 15 thousand on maintenance. After all, to charge the Tesla will own the solar panels – though their price into account somehow is not accepted.
However, by his own admission, the police Department enters the field of the unknown. The pilot project should provide answers to questions about the suitability, reliability, costs and other as yet unknown circumstances, operation of a patrol vehicle. After all, it is the first U.S. police Tesla, which will carry a similar service.
