2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan

2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan

New York Auto ShowIntroduced in advance of the 2017 New York Auto Show, Ford’s newest police-fleet vehicle has an unexpected twist—it’s a fuel-saving gas/electric hybrid.

The 2018 Ford Police Responder Hybrid Sedan is essentially a Ford Fusion Hybrid that’s been fortified for police duty with cop-car gear such as steel wheels, wiring for light bars and other upfit equipment, easy-to-clean vinyl rear seats and floor, anti-stab plates in the front seat backs, and slim-bolstered cloth front seats (to accommodate officers’ utility belts). It shares the Fusion Hybrid’s Atkinson-cycle 2.0-liter 4-cylinder paired with an electric motor fed by lithium-ion battery. The powertrain produces a combined 188 horsepower and can run in battery-only mode up to 60 mph.

Consumer Guide First Spin It’s still not often you see the words “Sport” and “Hybrid” in the same sentence – let alone in the same name – but the concept is growing in popularity. And few companies are leveraging the principle of using an electric motor’s instant low-speed torque to augment the high-end power of a gas engine as thoroughly as Acura.
