In an enviro-friendly move, the LAPD added 100 electric BMWs to its fleet. The cars are only being leased but the department is set to spend $1.5M to build charging stations. All of this is the follow up on promises made last year by Mayor Garcetti to enlist 288 electric cars in city departments. The i3 model that will be used by the police has only 170 horsepower, and thus will not be involved in any chases. LAPD has reportedly been looking at some faster Tesla model electric cars.
