A new, factory-installed Special Service Vehicle (SSV) package, will be provided by the 2022 Chevrolet Bolt and its Bolt EUV crossover sibling which making them high alternatives for regulation enforcement businesses trying to transition towards EVs. But as Police Pursuit Vehicles (PPVs), which should be the fastest, hardest cop cars, the plug-in family can't be suitable those cases and in GM fleet parlance, SSVs have a tendency to function parking manipulate and detective cars.
Although the Bolt and Bolt EUV can be the primary specifically equipped all-electric law enforcement automobiles, they aren’t the primary electrified cars to be provided to authorities groups. Some municipalities additionally use EVs like the Nissan Leaf to control the traffic and parking duties. For instance, till 2020 Ford provided the Police Responder sedan - a cop-ified Fusion hybrid -, replaced by the Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility hybrid.
Chevrolet didn’t want to make too many modifications to prep the mild-mannered Bolt and Bolt EUV for civil service. The SSV package deal consists of extra electric circuits, one measuring 20 amps and one 30 amps, for such things as strobe lighting fixtures and police radios, mentioned by GM Authority. Furthermore, the Bolt SSV family may even consist of a surveillance mode that cuts indoors and outside lighting fixtures for max nighttime-stakeout camouflage.
The point is that, for transitioning to meter-mobile, the EVs don’t lose something in the manner of range in the transition to meter-mobile. For example, the Bolt SSV can cross 259 miles among charges, at the same time as the Bolt EUV SSV is going 247 miles. Clearly supposed for assist duties, the non-pursuit regulation enforcement cars have a pinnacle velocity of 93 miles consistent with hour.
As 16-inch metal wheels are standard, and the SSV isn’t to be had with the Comfort, Driver Confidence, or Convenience packages (which variously encompass leather, blind spot monitoring, heated and ventilated seats, and more), we can say that the SSV-packaged EVs are just accessible for fleet or authorities orders, ready truly meagerly to soothe civilian oversight committees. Also, the Bolt SSV does include a energy driver’s seat with four-manner adjustable lumbar, so it’s mot quite spartan inside.
