There are a number of modifications to the Mustang Mach-E pad that the NYPD uses compared to the regular version. The Mustang Mach-E used is based on the GT model, with 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration time from 0-60mph is only 3.5 seconds. The Mustang Mach-E that the NYPD uses is equipped with a steel roof rather than a panoramic roof.
The Mustang Mach-E that the NYPD uses is equipped with flashing lights on the roof and on the grille, which is standard for NYPD vehicles.

Doors and windows are equipped with ballistic panels. From behind, a high-vision reflective material will keep officers safe. The car also has a roof-mounted message board that can display scrolling text.
Michigan State Police in september received a Mustang Mach-E shipment to be evaluated as a patrol car. Evaluations indicated that the dashboard and engine compartment of the Mach-E were not easily accessible. However, the NYPD appears to have overlooked these shortcomings.
To green their patrol cars, the NYPD has also received approval for up to 250 Tesla patrol cars. Now, they are installing charging stations in several places.
