Dubai – Dubai police recently took delivery of eight Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles. The police force that already has hybrid and electric vehicles within its fleet will benefit more from the Chevrolet Bolt EV which offers a range of 520 kilometres on a single charge.
The General Motors manufactured electric vehicles are a perfect fit for Dubai Government’s vision for more sustainable and smart mobility solutions.
Speaking on the General Motors and Dubai Police partnership, Brigadier Dr. Muhammad Nasser Al Razooqi, Director of Transport and Rescue said, “This partnership with Chevrolet is part of our on-going commitment to better serve the citizens and residents of Dubai while also leading the way in Dubai’s green initiative. 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.”
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a leading brand in the electric vehicle space and has a long history of cutting-edge green technology making it one of the most practical electric vehicles on the market.
Speaking on the Chevrolet Bolt EV’s addition to the Dubai Police fleet, John Roth, President & Managing Director of General Motors Africa & Middle East said, “We are proud to support the Dubai Government in its vision to make the Emirate a greener city. 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.”
Mark Jenkins, CEO of Al Ghandi Auto, one of Chevrolet Bolt EV official dealers in the UAE, pointed out that his dealership has a strong relationship with the Dubai Police and remains firmly committed to supporting them in creating a sustainable landscape in future mobility.
“We are extremely proud to be handing over these Chevrolet Bolt EV units, signifying our dedication to bringing innovation that complements the direction of the Dubai government,” Mark added while handing over the Chevrolet electric vehicles to the Dubai Police.
