The Waco Police Department is about to add 28 new hybrid vehicles to its fleet, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald.

Three are already in service, nine more from the same order are expected to be ready this year, and a second order for 16 more has been placed, for an overall cost of $1.44 million, more than $51,000 per vehicle.

The department switched over from Chevrolet Tahoes a little more than a year ago. From the outside, the 2020 hybrid Fords look about the same as the 2018 models, but the three hybrids being used by patrol officers have already shown improved fuel economy, Officer Garen Bynum said.
