Ford holds 63 percent of the market share for police vehicles in the U.S. Since the days of the Model T, Ford has been working with cities to provide them with custom law enforcement vehicles that not only meet their needs but exceed their expectations.

This new hybrid model will help cities decrease emissions as well as save in fuel costs as it’s expected to average 38 mpg. Of course it’s efficient while driving, but it’s also conserving fuel while idling as well! The vehicle’s lithium-ion battery will help power the high electrical load of a police vehicle, which would essentially reduce engine run time and save fuel.

In comparison to the Ford Police Interceptor, the Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan could save up to $3,900 a year in fuel costs. The exact savings depends on how often and how far the vehicle is driving, but Ford provided a fuel calculator to get a better idea of the potential it has.

The Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan is the first of its kind to offer full pursuit capabilities including intense pursuits over long periods of time at different speeds and over obstacles such as burbs and flooded intersections. Police agencies have certified this vehicle officially proving that it’s built Ford tough.

The new model can be ordered this spring, but it will be delivered to police departments across the U.S. next summer. Drivers can also look forward to other Ford hybrid models including an all-new fully electric small SUV coming by 2020.
