NYPD Is Getting Greener: 30 Ford Fusion Hybrids

Whenever you think about the police force the color blue comes to mind, but not if you are the NYPD, as they have been getting greener. The New York Police Department has now 30 Ford Fusion hybrids, to patrol the streets; maybe they can sneak up on would-be-thieves easier?

This now means that the department will now have 400 Fusion vehicles in its fleet, which should also help to save taxpayers money when it comes to the gas bill. The Ford Fusion hybrid averages around 41 mpg, double what a standard gasoline Chevy Impala achieves.

There are already other hybrids on the streets on New York, such as the Nissan Altima sedan, which is more widely used by parking enforcement officers. According to NYDailyNews, this is all part of Mayor Bloomberg’s plan to reduce New York’s carbon emissions by 30 percent over the next seven years.

We wonder if NYPD will consider the new Chevy Volt once it comes to market? Or why not go all green with the Nissan Leaf, as long as they do not have to drive too far?
