Mercedes-Benz presents an entire fleet of police cars at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference (GPC) 2018 in Berlin, starting the 20th of February.
The GLC 350 e 4MATIC is one of the cars submitted for the police fleet. With high-end safety features, state-of-the-art suspension system and plenty assistance systems, the plug-in hybrid also provides outstanding efficiency. Its environmental-friendly character can be police-friendly as well, running in all-electric mode in cities and switching to the combustion engine on long journeys.
The E-Class can provide just as much and even more. Mercedes-Benz brings the Estate version in police livery at the fair. Designed to comply with the strict future RDE legislation (Real Driving Emissions), the new OM 654 diesel engine is the perfect unit for the fleet. The car is also fitted with Active Brake Assist with distance and collision warning, situation-sensitive braking assistance and autonomous braking function, that may very well help the crew while their chasing the bandits.
The next applicant has quite an experience in the field. The smart assumed the role in zero emissions driving back in 2007 and since then, electric or not, it has been a favorite of the police forces. At the GPEC, the fortwo and forfour ED versions will be on display. A smart fortwo cabriolet electric drive will complete the fleet.
The Mercedes-Benz Vans is also represented at the fair. The Sprinter, the Vito Tourer and the eVito, the new X-Class are on the team. Mercedes also proposes the Arocs 325l L8x4 heavy-duty truck for logistical assignments, erection of protective barriers, removal of obstacles and high-altitude rescue deployments.
