The Latest Addition To The Dubai Police Motor Pool Is Decidedly Less Exotic

We’ve grown accustomed to seeing all manner of high-priced exotics pressed into service of the police fleets of the United Arab Emirates. But this time they’ve added something different entirely.

The latest addition to the Dubai Police motor pool is the Chevrolet Bolt EV, eight examples of which will now be on hand for local law enforcement in the UAE’s largest city and the surrounding emirate – including, apparently, the local airport.

“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,” said Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of Transport and Rescue. “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.”

Little else in the way of details were disclosed with the announcement from General Motors. But as you can see (and might have expected), the police-spec Bolts feature special liveries and emergency lighting, and have surely been fitted with other equipment like communication radios and what have you.

“We are proud to support the Dubai Government in its vision to make the Emirate a greener city,” added GM’s Middle East chief John Roth. “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.”
