Mercedes-Benz all set to electrify Police Vehicles

News

At the 11th General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference (GPEC) in 2020 Mercedes-Benz presented itself as a full-line supplier of police vehicles. The focus of its presence at this International Exhibition for Internal Security was on the wide range of drive variants offered.

Mercedes-Benz stand included a total of five vehicles with electric, hybrid and hydrogen drives and state-of-the-art diesel technology, demonstrating that Mercedes-Benz is optimally equipped for the different mobility challenges of tomorrow facing the police.

“Every two years the GPEC is one of the most important dates in our calendar,” said Kersten Trieb, Head of the Department for Government and Special-Purpose Vehicles at Mercedes-Benz Sales Germany. “We can demonstrate at a glance here that our vehicles' diverse possible applications for the police reflect the diversity of our products. We are delighted that many police authorities are placing their trust in our vehicles and services for their fleet, enabling us to make our contribution to increased security.”

The passenger car models exhibited on the Mercedes-Benz stand are all about alternative drives: from the E-Class 300 de Estate as a plug-in hybrid with the latest diesel engine and the GLC F-CELL with fuel cell and battery operation to the purely battery-electric EQC the Stuttgart car maker is clearly demonstrating just how diverse electric mobility with the three-pointed star can be.

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the new EQC as a show car in police livery for the first time. The first Mercedes-Benz model from the new product and technology brand EQ combines the hallmark brand characteristics such as quality, safety and comfort. Alongside pioneering design details and a generous range, the EQC is also characterised by the top safety level for which the brand is renowned. For instance, the vehicle is equipped with the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems. These include new functions in the Driving Assistance Package, such as anticipatory speed adaptation in respect of the end of tailbacks.

The EQC also meets the most discerning requirements when it comes to passive safety, too: in addition to the usual, extensive programme of crash tests, Mercedes-Benz applies further, particularly stringent safety standards to the battery and all component parts carrying electrical current. These standards exceed legal requirements.

The locally emission-free GLC F-CELL being displayed on the stand also stands for a new Mercedes-Benz era of sustainable mobility. This is the first radio patrol car from Mercedes-Benz to have a fuel cell and battery drive, and it has been in use by the Hamburg police force since 2019. The special plug-in hybrid combines the innovative fuel cell and battery technology for the first time: apart from electricity, it also runs on pure hydrogen. Intelligent interplay between battery and fuel cell, the long range, and short refuelling times make the GLC F-CELL a highly practical, purely electric vehicle suitable for short- and long-distance motoring.

A further highlight is the E 300 de Estate, which is a beacon of efficiency and low emission values. The plug-in-hybrid model is fitted with the latest Mercedes-Benz diesel engine and combines the best of both worlds. In town, it runs in all-electric mode, while on long journeys it benefits from the range of the combustion engine. The intelligent, route-based operating strategy activates the electric driving mode where this is most appropriate for the route. For example, it takes into account navigation data, topography, speed limits and the traffic conditions for the entire planned route. The ECO Assistant coaches the driver and helps to save fuel.
