The Ford Mustang Mach-E is the First EV to Pass Michigan State Police Tests

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has met the Michigan State Police criterias for squad cars

  • Ford entered an all-electric Mach-E SUV in the Michigan State Police 2022 model year evaluation

  • The Michigan Police found the Mach-E to be fit for law enforcement duty

  • Other police departments around the world might include electric vehicles in their fleet

Ford made the bet that electric vehicles are ready to be adopted by police departments, and it seems the company was right.

Earlier this month, Ford submitted a Mustang Mach-E electric SUV to the Michigan State Police for testing as a part of their 2022 model year vehicle evaluation.

This evaluation consists of multiple tests set up to determine a vehicle’s ability to cope with police service and emergency driving scenarios.

The Michigan State Police has now confirmed the Mustang Mach-E passed these tests, meaning it can (and probably will) be integrated to the force’s fleet in the coming months.

This is the first time an electric vehicle has been approved for use by law enforcement in the state, but it probably won’t be the last since the automotive industry is moving towards electrification.

The official results from the tests haven’t been made public yet, but once they are, many police services around the United States are expected to consult them and decide of they want to buy some Mustang Mach-E for use in their own fleet.

This is great news for Ford, since the company can expect to maintain its leading place as a supplier of the police forces in the United States, but also abroad, since a specially prepared Mach-E has been delivered for testing in the United Kingdom.

General Motors and Stellantis will have to develop competing electric vehicles if they don’t want Ford to get a monopoly over the electrified squad car in America.
