    LAPD Testing Electric Police Cruiser.

    KABC-TV [​IMG][​IMG] Los Angeles (10/22) reports on its website that the LAPD is currently testing the electric Tesla Model S as part of a “sustainability plan for the city.” Tesla loaned the vehicle to the department for a year of testing. The department already leases a fleet of 100 BMW i3 plug-in electric cars to be used in “non-emergency unmarked roles.” KABC-TV says the overall savings provided by the electric vehicles to the city “could be significant, especially as more city facilities adopt solar energy-charging systems.”
