It will have better engine cooling, stronger brakes, a more rugged suspension system and skid plates underneath to protect mechanical components when the car drives over curbs. The Ford Police Responder will be tested this fall by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and the Michigan State Police, two agencies that rate pursuit vehicles for police departments across the country. And about the fuel saving, it will be a $3,900 annual. The Police Responder’s interior has also been modified for police use, including gun holsters. The car has front deflector plates to help prevent vehicle damage, a tuned regenerative braking system with 17-inch rotors and twin-piston calipers.
Production of this model is part of a $4.5 billion Ford investment to make electric vehicles that give customers greater capability, productivity and performance plus better fuel economy.
