Police Scotland has invested £21 million to build electric vehicle (EV) charging points across its estates.
The installations will also include 35 ultra-fast chargers.
The level of investment is such that could make Scotland’s police force into one of the first fleets in the UK to introduce this level of charging technology.
Police Scotland says this is part of its fleets strategy and could result in a significant reduction in carbon emissions, maintenance and servicing costs.
Deputy Chief Constable Will Kerr said: “Police Scotland’s fleet strategy is highly ambitious, with the aim of having the UK’s first ultra-low emission blue light fleet by 2030.”
Matteo de Renzi, Chief Executive Officer of bp Chargemaster, commented: “We are incredibly proud to be able to support Police Scotland through this landmark contract, the largest of its kind ever awarded in the UK, as they transition their fleet and contribute to the Scottish Government’s 2045 net zero target.”
