With police forces always looking for vehicles to help them do their job to the best of their abilities, Vauxhall is creating a special vehicle targeted specifically at supporting the police in their work.
Vauxhall is producing a range of vehicles specifically for police forces, with the cars being made by the special vehicle’s team, which is located at Bedfordshire’s Millbrook training ground.
A host of needed equipment will be added to the Vauxhall Insignia vehicles to help police with their everyday duties, including Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems, a roof lightbar, blue lights and sirens.
Meanwhile, the vehicles will be available with a choice of three engines, such as a 2.0-litre 220PS turbo or a 2.8-litre 260PS petrol model which may be beneficial in pursuits and a 2.0-litre CDTi patrol car to carry out general duties around towns.
Vauxhall has suggested that the estate version of the car could be the most popular, because of its capacity to hold anything from police dogs to road traffic cones.
Last year in a review of the Vauxhall Insignia, Phil Lanning stated in the Sun that the car was the best that Vauxhall had ever manufactured.
