I doubt it'll ever happen. With all the features they're listing, it's going to be stupid expensive.

I wonder which Euro company is building the engine and trans for them... I forsee problems with this vehicle if it ever hits the market and they're using a Euro-sourced drivetrain.

Almost all of those features are optional, and the price is said to be "comparable" to a fully equipped police vehicle, which is quite expensive to begin with when you figure in the price of the vehicle 20,000ish; all the different lighting, radios, cameras, radars, computers, gun racks, etc; and the installtion costs.

Also the vehicles are supposed to be equipped with diesel engines, which would result in less fuel economy, and a longer vehicle, life. Which would also save the city, county, state whatever more money in the long run.

Also the vehicles will be purchased back from the agency, by the manufacturer, resulting in less money and headache getting the vehicles stripped back down of all the equipment and such, just to be put in an auction to recoup a couple hundered to a few thousand back.

I've worked on quite a few ex-cop cars, and they usually don't bother stripping the old gear out, since it's at the end of its lifespan and typically is obsolete by that point anyway.

Its a dream ride, not to have the center console pushing the butt of your gun into your side.

I bet that'd be a nice plus and the fact that you can look right and see road and not just a Toughbook screen...
