Britain's police forces are proceeding in an orderly fashion to test Mitsubishi's iMiEV after the company showed off the e-car - reviewed here - at the UK's National Police Show last month. West Midlands Police has already signed up and will take delivery of its first iMiEV cop cars early in 2010, the manufacturer has revealed …
100 miles range and 80mph top speed
Donut shop is 5 miles away. A few runs back and forward from there. Ohh and stop off and pick up the film from a few speed cameras
Other crimes. What other crimes?
Are you aware it's illegal to question an Office of the Law? I don't make the law son. I just kick your head in when you break it.
Excuse me Sir is this your camera? Did you just point it at my vehicle?
Come on lol
If police turned up in that around here (Yes am in teh midlands) the local yob population would just tip the thing over!!...
Think a playmobile needs doing!!
A 1l corsa..
Could outrun one of these no problem, and outrun them for longer.
1l corsas are the polices arch nemesis.
[pedant] That was set on Merseyside not in the West Midlands. [/pedant]
For creeping up on the perps.
Don't turn on the siren!
That'll reduce our range!
The Electromotive Force ;-)
Looks like some idiot missed out an 'o' on the order form:
Nice little article...
...you managed to crow-bar a Photoshop disaster *and* a Withnail&I quote in there.
Many, many thanks
Maybe they thought they were getting a really good deal on Mitsubishi EVOs.
that'll teach me
to not read headlines fully i thought brums finest were gonna be given EVOs not EVs
hark i hear the collective cackle of brums underworld laughing themselves stupid
...before one gets the lifted up and "parked" between two trees treatment?
Misread the title
Thought they were buying Evo's :)
....it'll be quicker than the expericens I had with them...
What's that, people are running around with a knife threatening to kill someone? Ok we'll send someone around once the match is finished as we're short on officers at the moment.
Guess you get what you pay for...football clubs pay thousands per match, I mearly pay my council tax.
Just glad now under West Mercia...
AS G&S said
A policeman's lot is not a happy one .... happy one
Same as everyone else
Thought they were buying EVOs, and was wondering why they didn't pick up some WRXs or STIs instead.. Need more caffeine!
back in the late 80s North wales Police had a Mini 1000 saloon panda to patrol Deeside. Lovely and cute as it was it was a poor choice of motor for the area.
This motor reminds me far too much of that. Bt good to see that WMP will have it. The lying scum will have less opportunity to conduct their summary justice in those.
It's a another excuse...
...for not responding to 999 calls in a timely fashion. "The batteries on the patrol car needed charging."
The Police are now environmentally friendly
Looks and sounds like the Police are trying to look all environmentally friendly. Maybe they should stop trying to look good and do the job.
Ever seen a police station car park?
Good luck anyone trying to get this to the charging point.
Other than that, eminently sensible idea. Most police work consists of running about in a limited area ferrying forms to different locations.
Oi! stop Police i've got to charge my car.
