Here's a look at the Dubai Police's new electric car addition
Meanwhile, Infiniti and Mercedes-AMG have released images of new hybrid models vehicles
The seemingly unstoppable march towards the electrification of our cars continues apace, with eight EVs being added to Dubai Police’s famed fleet, at the same time as Infiniti and Mercedes have revealed details of hybrid models.
The eight Chevrolet Bolt EV cars, a model that we tested earlier this year, began patrolling the roads of the Dubai yesterday as part of the government’s vision for more sustainable and smart mobility solutions in the emirate.
The all-electric American supermini has a claimed range of 520 kilometres from a single charge.
Meanwhile, Japanese manufacturer Infiniti will reveal its attention-grabbing Project Black S prototype at this week’s Paris Motor Show.
The muscly sports car, which has a 3.0-litre, twin-turbo V6 engine coupled with hybrid technology derived from Formula One, produces a healthy 563hp, versus 400hp without the electrification.
That is nothing on Mercedes-AMG’s 1,000hp Project One hybrid hypercar, however, which has been undergoing testing at a secret location in England.
Images of its latest prototype version have been released, and the new incarnation appears to have sharpened the lines of the show car that made its debut at motor shows around the world last year, including in Dubai.
