NYPD Introduces Hybrids to Patrol Fleet

Last week, we told you about the London Police Department adding electric and levitra discount alternative-fuel vehicles to their fleet, and now another major city is looking to boost the efficiency of their police force. The NYPD announced last week that they were deploying 40 Nissan Altima Hybrids as part of their patrol fleet. The police department already uses hybrids and electric scooters in its parking enforcement fleet, but the Altimas will be the first used in active patrol.

The Altima hybrid gets 35 mpg, double the fuel efficiency of the patrol fleet's standard car, the Chevy Impala, which gets 17 mpg, and only costs about $1,500 more per vehicle. The hybrids are being deployed on the routes where their benefit would be greatest - large coverage areas and smaller precincts that involves lots of stop and go traffic.

The police department plans to deploy a total of 100 hybrids this year as part of the PlaNYC program that aims to slash the city government's carbon emissions by 30 percent by 2017.

Great move by the only here order prescription levitra NYPD. Would love to see the Boston Police Department do a similar move, especially since taxis in Boston are old cop cars. We have a bill in place to mandate that all taxis in Boston become hybrid vehicles but it's a bit odd we don't have a similar bill in place for the BPD.
