Ford F-150 Lightning joins the Claremont Police Department in New Hampshire

The Claremont Police Department rolled out its latest electric vehicle, a Ford F-150 Lightning Pro Special Service Vehicle (SSV).

The police department located in New Hampshire had the F*150 Lightning Pro SSV donated to the force by Ford of Claremont. In addition to the truck, the dealership also donated emergency lights and the necessary charging equipment.

The Ford dealer is no stranger to vehicle donations and has donated a total of four vehicles to the police department. The dealer principal, Christian Gomes, is a former NYPD police officer.

The vehicle does have some custom modifications to make it usable as a police vehicle. This includes:

  • Ram bar
  • Emergency lights and livery
  • Special seats with heavy duty cloth material with smaller side bolsters
  • Steel intrusion plates on the seat backs
  • Vinyl rear seats and flooring for easy clean up

We should start seeing more of these vehicles hit the road in the next few months. The Ford F-150 Lightning Pro SSV comes in two options: a 98-kilowatt battery pack delivering 240 miles (386km) of range and a 121-kilowatt pack capable of 320 miles (515km). (via InsideEVs)

This vehicle is one of the first Ford EV police trucks to arrive in the state and will be put into service in the next few weeks.
