Dubai Police has a prestigious fleet of cars which includes the Bugatti Veyron, Aston Martin One-77, Lamborghini Aventador, Nissan GT-R and Audi R8. Now, joining those impressive supercars is something, well, a little different — it’s the cutesy Chevrolet Bolt EV!
With several hybrid and electric vehicles in the police force already, the diminutive Bolt EV will give officers behind the wheel long-range practicality of up to 520 kilometres on a single charge. That is unprecedented in its segment. Dedicated to being a key driver in the region’s motoring landscape, General Motors’ EV efforts fall in line with the Dubai Government’s vision for more sustainable and smart mobility solutions.
Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of Transport and Rescue: “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.” Already a game changer in the electric vehicle space, the Chevrolet Bolt EV brings together a long history of automotive manufacturing with cutting-edge green technology to produce one of the most practical electric vehicles in the market today. Speaking on the Chevrolet Bolt EV’s addition to the Dubai Police fleet, John Roth, President & Managing Director of General Motors Africa & Middle East said: “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 per cent 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.”
GM is leading the charge toward a fully-electric future, both regionally and internationally as part of the company’s vision for a world with zero crashes, zero emissions and zero congestion, ideals that are well-aligned with that of the Dubai Government.
