Tesla Mannequin 3, Hyundai Kona Electrical be a part of Indonesian Nationwide Police fleet as patrol and escort automobiles

The Indonesian National Police (POLRI) recently added the first electric vehicles to their fleet. A Tesla Model 3 patrol car joins the Transportation Corps (Korlantas) while a Hyundai Kona Electric serves as a support car for the West Java governor’s office.

According to detikOto, the Model 3 was donated jointly by Ikatan Motor Indonesia (IMI) and Prestige Image Motorcars and is the standard Range Plus variant. In this sense, the EV has a rear-mounted electric motor with an output of 287 PS (283 PS or 211 kW) and a torque of 450 Nm, which for a time of 5.6 seconds from zero to 100 km / h and a top speed 225 km / h is good.

Thanks to its 54 kWh lithium-ion battery, the car has a range of around 400 km, and the estimated cost of charging to reach that distance is said to be only 70,000 rupiah (19.81 RM). For police operations, the loan unit is dressed in an official paint scheme and equipped with police lights on the roof. Although the Model 3 Standard Range Plus is not officially sold by Tesla, it is available through Prestige Image Motorcars at a price of 1.5 billion rupiah (RM 424,425).

The Hyundai Kona Electric is based on the only signature variant sold in the country. An electric motor on the front has an output of 136 PS (134 PS or 100 kW) and 395 Nm, which enables a sprint time of 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 km / h. A lithium-ion polymer battery with 39.2 kWh offers a range of up to 289 km in accordance with the WLTP regulations.

Like the Police Model 3, the Kona Electric, which serves in West Java, will also receive the appropriate paintwork and police equipment. For civilians, the signature variant costs 697 million rupiah (197,213 RM).
