NYPD to Deploy Electric Stand-Up Vehicles

November 24, 2010

NEW YORK - The New York Police Department will be utilizing six T3 Series Electric Stand-up Vehicles from T3 Motion, Inc., part of a multi-unit purchase order shipped recently. The contract allows up to 90 units to be purchased over three fiscal years, according to a release from the company.

The NYPD multi-unit order will enable the department to lower operating costs and increase patrol capabilities, especially in subways and crowded areas throughout their jurisdictions.

According to the manufacturer, the units provide low-cost operation of less than 10 cents daily and run on two interchangeable and rechargeable batteries. The vehicles have a zero-degree turning radius, can run on speeds up to 20 mph, and provide a 9-in. raised platform for a superior vantage point, according to the company.
