City of Clovis (Calif.) Police has added two additional Zero Electric motorcycles to join its existing fleet of the five acquired in August 2014. Clovis Police believes it has the largest fleet of Zero electric police motorcycles in the United States.

These seven Zero electric motorcycles will allow officers to not only patrol the streets, but also parks, bike paths, shopping centers, and community events, as they put out no exhaust and generate no noise. The Police Department also purchased two electric Ford Focuses to be used by support staff during their daily responsibilities in Fresno County.

As with the original five Zero electric motorcycles purchased in 2014, these additional vehicles were purchased using money from the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District Public Benefit Grant Program, and no taxpayer dollars were used. All seven Zero motorcycles were purchased from Eckhaus Fleet, and both Fords were purchased from Future Ford, both based in Clovis.
