Georgia Tech PD Buys Three Ford Mustang Mach-E GT EVs

Though no official police-spec version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E exists as of now, that hasn’t stopped more than a few law enforcement agencies around the globe from converting the EV crossover for that particular use. In fact, quite a few police departments in the U.S. alone have already purchased a number of Mach-E models not only for pilot/testing purposes, but also, for actual use on duty as well. Now, that list has grown to include yet another department, which just bought a trio of Ford Mustang Mach-E GT models.

That agency is the Georgia Tech Police Department (GTPD), which purchased three Ford Mustang Mach-E GT models recently after Electrify GT – a student group helping the institute reach its carbon reduction goals – identified it as a cost-effective way to do precisely that. Electrify GT conducted research that shows the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is capable of supporting GTPD’s three-mile patrol radius while also cutting maintenance costs in half and reducing fuel costs by around $4,000 per vehicle, too.

“Having electric cars join our force is great. We already have other alternatives we utilize as vehicles to include electric golf carts, trikes, and electric bikes,” said GTPD Lt. Jessica Howard. “We supported them in that endeavor with research and cost analysis, carbon accounting for what it would look like to implement electric vehicles into the patrol car fleet,” added Rohan Datta, Electrify GT president.

With the addition of these Ford Mustang Mach-E GT models to its fleet, GTPD joins a host of other law enforcement agencies in the U.S. that have already done so. Thus far, that list includes the Ann Arbor, Michigan Police Department, the FBI Police, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Dearborn, Michigan Police Department, and the New York City Police Department.

    That’s about all they need, considering their campus isn’t all that large.

      Agreed – it’s an urban campus and a good application for EVs. They have their own charging stations and no range anxiety issues. Not sure why they needed the GT model, but I guess, why not?
