Dearborn, MI — September 20, 2021

We know it’s fast. Anyone who has driven the new Ford Mustang Mach-E will attest to its lightning acceleration and incredible performance capabilities. Now Michigan’s “Men and Women in Blue” are giving the beast a test for the law enforcement community.

To demonstrate that a vehicle with an electric powertrain can deliver strong performance and stand up to demanding police duty cycles, the Ford Motor Company is submitting an all-electric police pilot vehicle based on the 2021 Mustang Mach-E SUV for testing as part of the Michigan State Police 2022 Model Year Police Evaluation on Sept. 18 and 20. Graphics on the vehicle are not available for sale.

Ford is paving the way for electric police fleets in America. As part of its more than $30 billion investment in electrification through 2025, Ford is exploring all-electric, purpose-built law enforcement vehicles.

Ford will use the pilot program testing as a benchmark while it continues to explore purpose-built electric police vehicles in the future. Law enforcement demand for all-electric vehicles is growing worldwide.

Last week, Ford introduced a new Mustang Mach-E police concept car in the United Kingdom that has police agencies lining up for a chance to try it out.

Vehicles are arriving daily, stop by Lasco Ford at 2525 Owen Road in Fenton and see the future of electric performance, today.
