Dubai Police Adds Chevrolet Bolt EV in the Patrolling Fleet
It can deliver 520 kilometers of range on just a single charge.
Dubai Police have welcomed 8 Chevrolet Bolt EV models in their patrolling fleet. The vehicles have started patrolling the important spots in the city. Dubai police already retain a number of hybrid and electric cars in their patrolling fleet but the Chevy Bolt EV’s is unprecedented. It can deliver 520 kilometers of range on just a single charge.
This vehicle model is completely consistent with the Dubai Government’s vision for more sustainable and smart mobility solutions.
Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of Transport and Rescue said: “This partnership with Chevrolet is part of our ongoing commitment to better serve the citizens and residents of Dubai while also leading the way in Dubai’s green initiative. The addition of eight Chevrolet Bolt EV cars to our Dubai Police electric fleet will make a big impact in our mission to raise awareness around the benefits of electrification within the Emirate.”
The electric vehicle market is booming and it’s the cars like Chevrolet Bolt EV that are setting high standards for other electric automakers in the market.
Talking on the Chevrolet Bolt EV’s induction in the Dubai Police fleet, John Roth, President & Managing Director of General Motors Africa & Middle East stated: “We are proud to support the Dubai Government in its vision to make the Emirate a greener city. The Dubai Green Mobility Initiative has set some ambitious targets, including a 10% penetration of alternate propulsion vehicles in government fleets by 2020. This is a bold target, and we look forward to being equally bold in General Motors’ role as a reliable partner, with the Chevrolet Bolt EV forming the backbone of these fleets, starting with the world-famous Dubai Police fleet.”
General Motors is working on the motto of zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, which align well with the aim of the Dubai Government.
