The Hyattsville City Police Department in Hyattsville, Maryland is on the verge of electrifying times for police interceptors and it all starts with this Chevy Bolt.

Currently, Hyattsville City PD uses two EVs - the Chevrolet Bolt EV and a Zero electric motorcycle, charging them from two Level 2 stations.

Here we have video that presents the car and aftermarket emergency equipment installation.

The agency is working to become more green as most of the 65 strong fleet is gasoline powered.

"The City will be installing Two (2) DC Fast Charge (DCFC) and Ten (10) Level 2 (240 Volt) Electric Vehicle Charging Stations at three public parking lots which will be available to the general public at NO cost! Two of those EV Charging Stations, as well as the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt Electric Car and the 2017 Zero DSP Electric Police Motorcycle were funded by a grant from the Maryland Energy Administration."

Range results in the warm weather is around 250-280 miles (significantly more than 238 miles EPA), but during very cold days it could be closer to 175-225 miles.
