On November 22nd Elon Musk, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, officially unveiled the Tesla pickup Cybertruck, which is boiling over both the tech and automotive worlds. Although the user ruthlessly spit slots the ugly shape, but it does not prevent Tesla harvest leeks. Cybertruck has sold more than 250,000 cars so far, almost 27% of Ford Pickup’s total sales in 2018.

Not long ago, Dubai police officials tweeted that Cybertruck would be included in the existing police force, along with a computer-crafted Cybertruck police car map.
The news has cheered many netizens, but Cybertruck, which sold for $399,000, is probably the second in a fleet of Police Cars in Dubai.
For this oil-rich Middle Eastern country, the luxury of the world’s people has long been heard. But did not expect that around the world police stations are still using modern, Ford-branded cars as police cars, the Dubai police have started a large number of sports cars or even over-run to carry out official duties.
Dubai police had 14 supercars, including a limited-edition Aston Martin One-77 and a Lamborghini Aventador, the Daily Mail reported in 2017. Among them, as the pressure shaft of the Bugatthoti Willon, the most common model of the Chinese market price is also 25 million yuan, the high-performance version of the price is more than 35 million.
The car was even officially officially declared the world’s fastest police car, with a top speed of 407 km/h. The Bugathi police car has a maximum output of 1,200 horsepower and a 100-kilometer acceleration time of just 2.5 seconds.
More recently, the station has added a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S, which is priced at around 2 million.
Against the backdrop of these luxury super-runs, Tesla’s Cybertruck is bland.
In addition, there are others concerned about is such an electric pickup car suitable for police cars?
For friends who have been following Tesla’s dynamics, you may remember an embarrassing incident on a Tesla car not long ago.
In September, a f-line officer with the Fremont Police Department in California was left without electricity while driving a Tesla Model S police car after the suspect, causing the suspect to run away.
Although police later said the accident was caused by a failure to charge in time and had nothing to do with the vehicle itself, it sparked a heated public debate about the suitability of electric cars as police cars.
The debate over whether electric cars can be police cars is largely focused on range and speed. According to Tesla official data, cybertruck has three versions.
1) Single-motor rear-wheel drive version, EPA has a range of 250 miles (400km) and a traction of 7,500 pounds, achieving a top speed of 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.5 seconds.
2) Dual-motor all-wheel drive version, EPA range of 300 miles (480 km), traction of 10,000 pounds, in 4.5 seconds to complete 0-60 mph acceleration.
3) The three-motor all-wheel drive version accelerates to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and has an EPA range of up to 500 miles (804Km).
There is no doubt that Dubai, the Turkish-based country, will definitely choose the top-of-the-range all-wheel drive version, which has a range of 804km and an acceleration of 60mph in 2.9 seconds, which is already better than many fuel cars.
And Cybertruck is made of a heavy-duty housing made of ultra-hard 30X cold-rolled stainless steel and armored glass, which is resistant to blow. As long as the money is paid, no version of Cybertruck will have self-driving capabilities.
These performance advantages are sufficient to support Cybertruck’s position as a qualified police car.
