    This an old story from last Summer/Fall. The LAPD did test it but ultimately passed on it.

    Odd its still making news, but glad they realized those wheels wouldn't last long with potholes. Lousy ROI.

    No, I don't think so, current article if you read. Also testing the i3. Looks to be still on-going.

    Probably leaning toward acquisition/operating cost... A Ford runs $30k while a P90D runs $120k... hmmmm....

    Sorry no. CNN Money story from September 15, 2015. There's an article a couple of weeks ago in this forum about them deciding against the Tesla although the BMW, as you say, is still being tested. You can read all theories on why that happened on TMC.
    LAPD gets a Tesla Model S

    With all that equipment, it might get a range of 200 miles on a good day.

    And police vehicles get damaged during use quite often, wonder how long to get parts?

    Sorry LAPD the part will take about 2 months :)
    Seriously though, I wonder if they could come up with a way to use the 17" screen as the computer. Most have laptops now

    That doesn't really matter if they can't get parts.
