Ideal for local patrol use, the Ford Police ResponderTM Hybrid Sedan provides a capable option that delivers multiple potential benefits. These include potential fuel savings and reduced CO2 emissions,as well as potentially fewer fill-ups – resulting in less vehicle downtime to keep your vehicles and officers on the road....Less
Purpose-built for the police duty cycle, the Police Responder Hybrid Sedan’s hybrid powertrain can offer significant potential fuel savings compared to traditional police cruisers. Its lithium-ion hybrid battery can also provide added benefits when considering the unique idling demands of day-to-day police use. See just how these potential savings can benefit your community by using this convenient calculator.

1. Projected EPA-estimated rating of 40 City/36 Hwy/38 Combined mpg. Actual mileage will vary. Final EPA-estimated ratings not yet available.
2. EPA-estimated rating of 16 City/22 Hwy/18 Combined mpg, 3.7L Interceptor Sedan AWD with unleaded gas. Actual mileage will vary.
3. Idle duration data collected with the assistance of Dearborn Police Department and Massachusetts State Police, April 2012–November 2013. Data collected on a total of six vehicles in police patrol use.
4. Idle fuel consumption estimates are based on fuel flow measurements taken during two hours of continuous idling. Vehicles were driven for 18 miles at highway speeds prior to idling. Idle testing was conducted in an indoor facility at 80 degrees F. The following vehicle accessories were activated during the test: climate control AC, set to full cool condition; vehicle audio system, set to 33% of maximum volume. An electrical power draw load box drawing 32 amps was also connected to each vehicle’s 12-volt battery to simulate the following estimated police accessory loads: emergency lights (est. 25 amps); laptop computer (est. 3 amps); police radio (est. 4 amps) Additional testing details are available at http://ford.to/2nw5dE8.
5. Burning a gallon of E10 ethanol fuel produces about 17.68 pounds of CO2 emitted from the fossil fuel content, according to data provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (http://ford.to/eiareport).

The Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan meets all federal impact standards.
To earn its pursuit-rating, it’s undergone rigorous testing. That includes validation for eight-inch curb impact, 30-mph railroad crossing and reverse J-turn. It’s also been tested for water fording in 18 inches of water at 15 mph and 10 inches of water at 40 mph.
A standard console mounting plate is provided in lieu of a floor console, allowing for installation of aftermarket equipment and channeling of wiring. In the trunk, an auxiliary power distribution box and power lugs make current easily accessible. Available duty-demanded options include a driver’s side spotlamp, ballistic door panels, noise suppression bonds and a trunk storage vault. As well as the variety of lighting packages you’d expect.

Another hybrid advantage? Potential fuel savings from reduced engine idling time. While on duty, even at idle, police vehicles must constantly keep their engines running to power lighting packages, radios, computers and other electrical equipment. The Police Responder Hybrid Sedan reduces engine idling time by powering its electrical load using the lithium-ion hybrid battery. This allows the engine to run less, now only intermittently called upon to top off the battery....Less

For detective, administrative or other specialized use, the Special Service Plug-In Hybrid Sedan offers a potential way to help reduce fuel usage and CO2 emissions while on duty. For non-pursuit applications, it offers zero-fuel, zero-emissions operation in full-battery mode… in addition to the flexibility of a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain for extended range. The 7.6-kWh lithium-ion battery charges in approximately 2.5 hoursusing an optional 240V charger. It can also be charged overnight with the standard 120V charger that plugs into any standard wall outlet. Either way, it adds an EPA-estimated rating of 21 miles of electric-only power before the gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain takes over. This Special Service Sedan offers a purpose-built interior and a variety of lighting and other options tailored for law-enforcement needs....Less
