Nissan LEAF joins Portuguese police fleet
Portugal’s Polícia de Segurança Pública (PSP) will be the first police force in the world with the battery-electric vehicle on fleet, and will use them mainly for its Safe School initiative. Each LEAF is also fully equipped for use as a police car, and can be deployed for other duties as required.
Superintendent Paul Gomes Valente, national director of PSP, said: ‘We pride ourselves in being the first police force in the world to incorporate cars with zero-emission technology as part of our 5,000 vehicle fleet. We want to continue reducing pollution in large urban centres and the introduction of the 100 per cent electric Nissan LEAF sets a new benchmark for our fleet.’
