The New Hybrid Ford Police Interceptor is boasting better MPG and a much more impressive HP, keeping high speed pursuit chases within distance while saving taxpayers gas while these cars idle during traffic stops.
According to Ford,
[The] new hybrid Utility could save up to 993 gallons of fuel at idle and 343 gallons of fuel while driving, for a total annual fuel savings of 1,276 gallons per year. These figures are based on 4.9 estimated hours of idling per eight hour shift, with two shifts per day, for every day of the year.
At Ford’s estimated $2.50 per gallon, it would total $3,190 in fuel savings every year. Their new EPA estimates promises a 24 MPG range. Sounds good to me!
