UAE: Police go green in Dubai

UAE green festival opened its Green Auto Show on the Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Dubai on Thursday. The Auto Show showcased the latest eco-friendly vehicles and designs presented by government organisations and automotive companies.

Dubai's Renault-made electric police car was one such vehicle put on display. The one-seater's main function is to pursue traffic law violators and enhance police presence in narrow alleyways. Also on show was the Lexus GS Hybrid F-Sport, which boasts a 3.5 litre engine with 288hp and an eight-speed automatic AED285,00. The Lexus RX, also on display, is a full hybrid boasting 295hp and six-speed automatic.

Also rolled out was the Mitsubishi i-MiEV Electric Vehicle, which runs pruely on electricity and has a cruising range of 150km (93 miles) when fully charged. For impact protection the car batteries are in a waterproof casing, in a well-crib frame within the body of the car. It takes 6 hours to fully charge the vehicle.
