New York City Buys 184 Mach-E GTs for Police, Emergency Response
Jan. 3, 2022—New York City is buying 184 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUVs for its law enforcement and emergency response departments.
The vehicles will arrive in the city by June and will replace ICE vehicles currently being used in by police, county deputies, the corrections department, parks department and other agencies, according to the Detroit Free Press. The move is the latest in an effort for the city's push toward electrification; city officials hope to achieve and all-electric fleet by 2035.
"Smart investments in fleet electrification will help New York City break its dependence on fossil fuels," municipal official Dawn Pinnock said in a news release.
The city will spend $11.5 million on initial orders, which comes out to around $62,500 per vehicles. All Mach-Es in the order will be the GT variant, which Ford CEO Jim Farley says can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and has an EPA-estimated range of 260 miles.
