What We Think
We appreciate the fact that Dubai Police always stays ahead of the competition when it comes to the convoy. There are already cars like the Lamborghini and Bugatti in the fleet of the Police department. However, in reality, we think that these are more for show rather than practicality. Sure there will be usage of these vehicles. But we are not sure if maintaining these will be all that affordable. Moreover, Police vehicles need to be rugged for various emergency scenarios. Chasing criminals in luxury EVs might not be the best idea.
