Plug-in Police Vehicles

The Ford Transit developed through this project is currently undergoing trials in London with 20 vehicles at a number of service operators, including the Metropolitan Police & British Gas. This has enabled Ford to leverage learnings from its product engineering team as well as city authorities.
