A police department in Basel, Switzerland is introducing the world's largest fleet of Tesla Model X 100D patrol cars.

Three of the first cars already entered service, while the further four (for total 7) are expected over the course of this year.

The first units were ready in December, but as it turns out, it took a while until police dispelled concerns about data security (location of the vehicles can be turned off, while voice isn't recorded more than needed for voice-activated features).

The police department is reportedly paying for the Model X 100D some 49,000 CHF ($48,041) more than for its diesel equivalent, but hopes to save money over long-term.

Currently, at least several police departments around the world are using either Tesla Model S or Tesla Model X.
