A fleet of Peugeot 308s has been adopted by the Police force, for use in their Police Support Unit, Canine Patrols, Scenes of Crime and Cell (prison van) vehicles.
The environmental credentials of the new 308 1.6-litre HDi 90 S Peugeots mean that they have a fuel economy of 62.7mpg whilst only registering 120g CO2 per km emissions.
Andy Bye, manager of Peugeot’s Special Vehicle Operation (PSVO), said: "The 307 has been a success with UK Police fleets, and the improvements in the new 308 mean we have a very competitive proposition a product that performs well at all levels.
"Police forces are increasingly mindful of the operational cost of running a fleet, and their impact upon the environment. The Peugeot 308 HDi 90 S combines low emissions and strong fuel economy, without compromising its role, with added practicality and performance."
Peugeot are also about to convert the new 308 SW estate vehicles to add a (blue) light bar, siren, PA system, hand set, control box, LED bumper lights and a full police livery.
