The Brookhaven (Ga.) Police Department field tested its Tesla Model S this week and determined that it performed well. The vehicle was tested on two performance tracks at the Georgia Public Safety Training Center — one designed for high-speed emergency response and the other for urban emergency response, according to Reporter Newspapers.
The vehicle will now be used to patrol city streets for a 90-day trial period. If it performs well, the police department will consider replacing all its cars with electric vehicles.
Brookhaven purchased the previously owned 2015 Tesla Model S for $45,000 earlier this year.
