A model of the brand Tesla employed as a patrol car of the police in the Bay Area (California) ran out of battery in the midst of persecution. The event, according to CNN and several u.s. media, took place last Friday.
Other police units joined the pursuit, but also had to withdraw due to the "dangerous form of driving that he was the suspect."
Finally it was another patrol that found the abandoned vehicle in the municipality of San José. The driver of the suspect vehicle was searched as a possible perpetrator of a crime in Santa Clara.
The policeman who was driving the Tesla declared that he wasn't quite sure if the batteries of the car were fully loaded when you started the chase, but am a few minutes of starting the "race" realized they were just six kilometers..
The vehicle is part of a pilot of the police of Fremont, that is testing the integration of this type of electric vehicles in the department.Updated Date: 27 September 2019, 14:03
