In February, the city announced that it would buy and retrofit a Ford Mustang Mach-E to create the police force’s first operating EV police car.
After a few months of work at Cyberkar, a Quebec-based retrofitter, the police car is ready for duty.
The Mustang Mach-E will be on a whirlwind tour over the next few weeks.
The vehicle will be at the Quebec City Electric Vehicle Show this weekend.
Later this month, the Mustang Mach-E will head to the New York City Fleet Show.
Finally, it will come back to Quebec to show off to various police forces at the Symposium of the Association of Quebec Police Directors.
Although it is ready for the front line, the Repentigny Police will ease into use.
Instead, the police force will spend the next six months using the vehicle on training exercises and various testing regiments.
The force wants to gather as much data as possible about the vehicle, its battery and how it performs under multiple situations.
Ford has long supplied police forces in Canada and the United States with outfitted police cars.
However, as of yet, the company has not mass-produced the Mustang Mach-E police version. Although, with continued interest, we may see it soon enough.
