Coppers adopting TESLA Model 3

❝ The Bargersville, Indiana, Police Department is updating its fleet to Tesla Model 3s after they figured out that they will save a lot of money on gas, and that the Tesla Model 3s don’t compromise performance compared to the Dodge Chargers…

❝ The Luxembourg Police converted two Model S sedans to patrol cars, and the largest fleet of Tesla police patrol vehicles is in Switzerland…

❝ As for cost, Model 3 is the clear winner. The Standard Range Plus version that they bought is a little more expensive at ~$41,000, but they expect gas savings of about $6,000 per year, which means that the Model 3 will almost pay for itself over its lifetime (they expect six years as a police vehicle).

And here’s another one of those changes resulting from our recent Great Recession. People realized they didn’t need a new car as often as previous. Lots of folks bought new cars as things got better into the Obama years. Then slooowed way down below new purchase cycles of earlier generations.
