Are There Mandatory Regulations on the Use of Electric Patrol Cars by Countries?

What is an electric patrol car?

Electric patrol car belongs to a type of special vehicles. From the literal meaning, it can be easily understood that electronic patrol cars are vehicles used for patrol, mainly relying on electric energy as their driving force. Due to its unique characteristics, such as the design of a small and agile body, which can easily move around the streets and alleys, and its fast speed, as well as its environmentally friendly and energy-saving features, it is often used as a patrol vehicle for police officers.

What are the types of electric patrol cars?

Nowadays, many manufacturers can basically customize vehicles according to the user's needs. If users prefer or need a specific type of vehicle, manufacturers can produce those types. Open-type electric patrol cars are suitable for patrol and inspection, which is why many police electric patrol cars seen on the streets and alleys are open-type.

In addition to the above open-type or custom-designed electric patrol cars, there is also a fully enclosed type with windows and doors, known as the fully enclosed electric patrol car.

However, fully enclosed electric patrol cars are generally rarely seen in patrol because the use of these vehicles is not convenient for police officers. Therefore, fully enclosed electric patrol cars are generally used as a means of transportation for police officers for investigation and citation in the surrounding areas.

Generally, this kind of vehicle can carry 4-5 persons or 6-8 persons. Its maximum speed also varies according to the different passenger-carrying capacity of the vehicle. For example, the maximum speed of a vehicle rated for carrying 4-5 persons is 30km/h, while the maximum speed of a vehicle rated for carrying 6-8 persons is between 25-30km/h.
