The national gendarmerie confirms that it will not order a Cupra Leon after the delivery of the 17 Seat Leon Cupra in 2020. But then, which other manufacturer will it turn to?
Last year, the National Gendarmerie announced the order for Seat Leon Cupra to replace its third generation Renault Megane RS. This order, which aimed to replace its rapid intervention vehicles, suggested that the gendarmerie could then switch to the brand new Cupra Leon (now no longer sold under the Seat badge) to complete its fleet.
But, as we learned a few weeks ago, the gendarmerie will finally stop there. The police will not acquire new Cupra Leon after the 17 Seat Leon Cupra already ordered.
Back to Renault?
According to Actupenit specialists, the fact of having chosen a foreign manufacturer would not have pleased senior officials of the French gendarmerie, who would have preferred “a French car” according to a hearing at the National Assembly. Another order could be placed to complete the fleet of 17 Seat Leon Cupra, but perhaps with “hybrid vehicles”. Peugeot 508 PSE? The 3008 Hybrid4 GT? Remember that the old generation Seat Leon Cupra cost much less than the latter (a little over 35,000 euros in the five-door version).
