Electric cop cars? Ford Mustang Mach-E imagined as Police Interceptor

With fistfuls of grunt and a near silent motor, the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E could make a worthy Police Interceptor.

Decked out as a successor to the Ford Explorer used by cops in the United States, it’s not so hard to picture the zero-emissions SUV patrolling highways and chasing down suspects.
