Madrid police renews its fleet with a major commitment to electric cars

A total of 169 vehicles have been delivered, of which 1/3 are electric or plug-in hybrids.

The municipal police of Madrid has already received its new fleet of vehicles from BMW, where the commitment to electrification is palpable and considerable.

On many occasions we have said that the first ones who should set an example in opting for electric vehicles are the public and political bodies themselves, and on this occasion we can say that the local police of Madrid is setting an example in this respect.

It is true that of the 169 vehicles delivered, we would have liked the number of pure electric vehicles to have been higher, but at least a step has been taken to ensure that the Madrid police patrols with as little pollution as possible, as all new vehicles purchased from BMW carry the Zero or ECO label.

Of this delivery, 1 in 3 cars are so-called zero-emission cars, i.e. pure electric or plug-in hybrids.

As for the pure electric cars delivered, the model in question is the BMW i3, a small vehicle that is perfect for driving in Madrid’s inner city.

As for the plug-in hybrid, the vehicle in question is the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 225xe (PHEV).

As usual, all the cars delivered have been adapted to the needs of the police.

The handover ceremony took place this Monday at the Palacio de Cibeles and was presided over by the Mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Alméida, the CEO of BMW Group Spain and Portugal, Manuel Terroba, and the Director General of the Municipal Police, Pablo Enrique Rodriguez Pérez, as well as representatives of Alphabet (BMW Group’s leasing company) and the commercial network that made the agreement possible.
