    “We're proud to offer America’s first electric police pickup truck to local government customers who can use the truck’s game-changing technology to help improve their productivity,” said Ford Pro National Government Sales Manager Nate Oscarson.

    Per Ford, the all-electric mobile unit is designed to handle specialized departmental needs outside of pursuit situations, such as assisting at an accident or crime scene or giving departments the ability to tow a boat or trailer.

    Its purpose-built features include police-grade heavy-duty cloth seats with reduced bolsters, built-in steel intrusion plates in the front seatbacks, an upfit-friendly reinforced instrument panel top tray, easy-to-clean vinyl rear seats and vinyl flooring, and red/blue, amber/white roof-mounted LED warning beacons.

    The truck also comes with a 12-inch digital cluster screen and a 12-inch landscape-style touchscreen on the center stack. These allow police officers access to Ford’s Intelligent Range, SYNC 4, over-the-air Ford Power Up software updates, and Ford Co-Pilot360 technology, including Automatic Emergency Braking and Blindspot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert.

    “Pro Power Onboard can serve as a mobile power source to light up evening accident scenes on the highway, the electric powertrain helps to potentially reduce costs associated with fuel and scheduled maintenance needs, and the Mega Power Frunk provides extra lockable storage on top of purpose-built police additions our customers have come to expect from the leader in police vehicles,” Oscarson said.

    As part of Ford Pro’s platform of connected vehicles, software, and services, the targeted zero-emissions police truck comes pre-configured to seamlessly connect to a department’s existing fleet of Ford and non-Ford internal combustion engine and battery-electric vehicles, chargers, and fleet management software.

    When used together, police departments can proactively manage when vehicles are charged and serviced, resulting in potentially lower operating costs and improved uptime.
