New Nissan LEAF all-electric vehicles will be used for policing in Japan
In a recent press release, Nissan has revealed that a fleet of its new LEAF electric vehicles (EVs) will be used for policing in Japan. More specifically, Nissan said that the new all-electric LEAF fleet will be used by the Police staff in Fukuoka.
The new LEAF all-electric vehicle was launched by Nissan in 2017. The rollout of the EVs is currently in full swing in the automaker’s home country. In addition, Nissan has also recently ramped up the rollout of new LEAFs in the US and European markets.
Disclosing that the new LEAF EV is set to become a police car in Japan, Nissan said in the press release that 22 units of the new LEAF were delivered to the Police in Fukuoka earlier this week.
Nissan also mentioned that the fleet of the new LEAF EVs will be used for public relations as well as patrol vehicles.
With the new Nissan LEAF, and other EVs, being turned into police vehicles because they are apparently perfect for administrative and public outreach purposes, Nissan’s press release informed, “As a public relations enlightenment support car (so-called “blue pato”) responsible for crime prevention in each region of Fukuoka prefecture, we used a total of 22 new Nissan Leafs at the Fukuoka Traffic Safety Association all together.”
