Scotland Police Force Introduce Kona Electric to Fleet
How the Hyundai Kona Electric can reduce costs and emissions
Scotland’s police force has recently taken order of 180 Kona Electric SUV's, the largest electric fleet order to date.
Police Scotland were already operating with electric vehicles as part of their existing fleet and the new Kona Electric additions allow the force to minimise their carbon footprint to practically zero while fulfilling their duties.
The Hyundai Kona Electric was chosen by Police Scotland for its range of up to 300 miles as well as its practicality.
Police Scotland aim to have the UK’s first blue light ultra-low emissions fleet by 2030. This aims to significantly reduce carbon emissions and maintenance costs.
Introducing the Hyundai Kona Electric to their fleet allows the force to achieve a sustainable, flexible service that meets the needs of their citizens.
The Hyundai Kona Electric offers zero emissions and a great performance in a stylish design. Running costs are as low as £7.50 per full charge keeping and the Kona Electric can be charged to 80% in just 75 minutes using a DC or AC charging station.
Packed with technology features such as Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Collision Warning and a 7 or 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system, the Kona Electric offers a truly enjoyable drive whilst also providing complete peace of mind.
There is ample boot space, offering 334 litre load volume or 1,116 litres when the rear seats are folded flat. There is ISOFIX mounting points on both outer rear seats for those travelling with young children.
