LAPD stocks up on EVs

Interesting to see the LAPD stocking up on EVs - Tesla seems to be the vehicle of choice. Is this the start of a big move to EVs in the public sector?

Source of this statement?

There are a number of articles such as:-

LAPD Borrows Tesla and BMW EVs, Will Add More to Its Fleet | Digital Trends

They will save much more money on the gas expenses that they have to cover yearly.

Is this a sign of things to come?

As I know police in Japan and some of the EU countries was using hybrids like Toyota Prius for quite a while, is just the time for the new generation cars like Leaf or even Tesla.

I agree - this would also encourage the public to convert as they would see more EVs in their normal everyday life.
