New York City Orders 184 Mustang Mach-E Cars For Police And Government


New York City has purchased 184 all-electric Mustang Mach-Es and all will be used for law enforcement and emergency response. As Electrek noted, the move is part of the city’s plans to purchase more than 1,250 electric vehicles by 2022. That, in turn, is part of a larger effort to “drasically reduce city-wide climate emissions” using a $420 million investment.

In its announcement, the NYC local government said the Mach-Es will be used by the New York Police Department (NYPD), the New York City Sheriff’s Office, the Department of Correction, the Department of Parks and Recreation, the Department of Environmental Protection, NYC Emergency Management, DCAS Police and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. They will replace those agencies’ gas-powered vehicles after the city receives them by June 30, 2022.

NYC also said the Mach-E purchase is part of its biggest EV purchase to date, though that may not be the case for long. The city has also approved the option to purchase up to 250 Tesla Model 3 vehicles over the next five years.

Earlier this month, Ford announced it was ramping up production of the Mach-E to 200,000 vehicles per year in the US from 2022 and in Europe by 2023. Jim Farley, the company’s CEO, said there is huge demand for the electric vehicle. vehicle, and Ford has reportedly delayed its Explorer and Aviator EVs to ensure it can produce enough Mach-Es to meet demand.
