The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of the United States (US) has now shown interest in electric vehicles. Previously, the US president also ordered to stop selling gasoline cars by 2035.
The move was taken to reduce vehicle emissions, while promoting environmentally friendly electric cars. Later, the US plans to consume electricity only from carbon-free and non-polluting sources by 2030.

Therefore, the government will try to road test the Ford Mustang Mach-E as a police vehicle next year. This decision was made in order to achieve the emission-free target by 2027.
“In early 2022, DHS will begin field trials of the Ford Mustang Mach-E ZEV for use in its law enforcement fleet, which currently comprises more than 30,000 vehicles,” reads a statement in the Inside EVs report.
This electric car model is rumored to have completed a Michigan department evaluation by offering dual-motor all-wheel-drive technology. The engine is capable of producing 408 hp of power and 813 Nm of peak torque.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is known to be able to reach a distance of up to 402 km on a single charge. That way, this electric vehicle is quite suitable for use as a US police service car.
So far there is no information about what type of Mustang Mach-E will be tested by the government next year. However, it is possible that the US police service car that will be used later is the Mach-E GT model.
