National Police in Malaga Get 31 New Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles.

THE National Police has incorporated 300 plug-in hybrid vehicles into its fleet – 31 of them in Malaga – within a series of actions launched last year aimed at modernising police vehicles throughout Spain while focusing on being more eco-friendly.

The Malaga fleet welcomes the Peugeot 3008 model, which has been transformed into a uniformed type Z radio patrol vehicle. The Police have acquired the vehicles through a rental contract which has signed for a period of four years.

The vehicles, as reported by the Police, have been distributed among the higher headquarters of the National Police of all the autonomous communities, where they are already providing service. 548 hybrid vehicles are reportedly already in use throughout Spain – adding a total of 848 uniformed hybrid vehicles.

Specifically, in the province of Malaga , 31 plug-in hybrid vehicles have been added to its fleet: Antequera (1), Estepona (4), Fuengirola (5), Marbella (5), Ronda (1), Torremolinos (3), Vélez ( 2) and Málaga capital (10).

It is also expected that a total of 268 camouflaged plug-in hybrid vehicles, known as K vehicles, will join the police fleet by next July.

In addition, to continue the modernisation of vehicles and adapt police infrastructures, bringing the fleet into the 21st century, talks are underway for the installation of 200 charging points for electric vehicles in police buildings.
