The prestigious Dubai Police fleet of cars has a new kid on the block: The new Chevrolet Bolt EV. Eight patrol units are already out on the streets of Dubai as of today.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV was chosen because of its unprecedented driving range amongst other benefits. The Bolt returns a maximum driving range of 520km on a single full charge. General Motors’ EV efforts align perfectly with Dubai Government’s vision for more sustainable and smart mobility solutions, leading to the induction of these cars to the fleet.

While talking about the induction, Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of Transport and Rescue, said: “This partnership with Chevrolet is part of our ongoing commitment to better serve the citizens and residents of Dubai while also leading the way in Dubai’s green initiative. The addition of eight Chevrolet Bolt EV cars to our Dubai Police electric fleet will make a big impact in our mission to raise awareness around the benefits of electrification within the Emirate.”

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been a game changer for General Motors right from the time it was launched, effectively bringing together the company’s long history of automotive manufacturing with the cutting-edge green technology of the future. It is one of the most practical electric cars on sale today.

John Roth, President & Managing Director of General Motors Africa & Middle East spoke about the addition to the police fleet: “We are proud to support the Dubai Government in its vision to make the Emirate a greener city. The Dubai Green Mobility Initiative has set some ambitious targets, including a 10% penetration of alternate propulsion vehicles in government fleets by 2020. This is a bold target, and we look forward to being equally bold in General Motors’ role as a reliable partner, with the Chevrolet Bolt EV forming the backbone of these fleets, starting with the world-famous Dubai Police fleet.”

Mark Jenkins, CEO of Al Ghandi Auto who delivered the eight Bolt EVs to the Dubai police also had to say this on the occasion: “As one of the Emirate’s leading dealerships, we have a strong relationship with the Dubai Police and remain firmly committed to supporting them in creating a sustainable landscape in future mobility. We are extremely proud to be handing over these Chevrolet Bolt EV units, signifying our dedication to bringing innovation that complements the direction of the Dubai government.”
