Citroen Ami, the slowest cars of the Greek police

Who said that the police car, in order to be effective and to effectively fight crime, must they be characterized by performances worthy of a supercar? In fact, everything depends on the roads on which the vehicles will be called to move and the operations they will have to carry out.

We should therefore not be surprised if, alongside the Lamborghini Huracan used by the Italian State Police, “alternative” means can emerge. This is the case, for example, of Chalki police force, a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea, which recently received new cars for their fleet from Citroen. Thus, along with vehicles that we could define as “usual” (two C4s, a Spacetourer and a Jumpy, all in full electric version), the Greek policemen will now be able to patrol the streets aboard their flaming Citroen Ami.

For those who are not attentive to the news of the automotive world, it is worth remembering that the Ami is a unique vehicle of its kind. It is about an electric car designed exclusively for city mobility. Compact and light, Citroen Ami accommodates up to two people, has a range of 75 kilometers (3 hours are enough for a full charge) and has a decidedly interesting list price, especially for those looking for a vehicle to use alone. for short trips.

The Greek police of the island of Chalki received two Citroen Amis to patrol the streets of the small Greek island

However, its peculiarity, at least in the police field, is another: the French microcar has one maximum speed of 45 kilometers per hour. Which makes it, most likely, the “slowest” police car in the world. Perhaps an unenviable record, if you believe that police cars should be used exclusively in spectacular chases. Its size, on the other hand, makes the Ami perfect for patrolling the streets of Chalki and other tiny island towns. The whole with 0 local emissions.

The new fleet of the Greek island police, in fact, is not noteworthy only for having the slowest patrol car in the world. As initially said, in fact, the six vehicles now supplied to the Chalki policemen are all full electric: the donation of Citroen (in the form of a free lease for 48 months, subsequently the French manufacturer will buy the vehicles and give them to the Greek police forces ) makes Chalki the first GREEK-ECO island of the Mediterranean.

The donation of the six cars to the local police is part of a larger project by the French manufacturer to make sustainable mobility technologies and services more easily accessible to all citizens of the Greek island. The medium-term goal is to turn the entire island into a sustainable mobility area and zero local emissions, favoring the purchase of light quadricycles and electric-powered cars by all inhabitants and all local economic and commercial activities.
