Vauxhall to attend Police Fleet conference

The conference takes place in Peterborough on 25-26 September. The manufacturer will be displaying police cars alongside civilian vehicles. It will also be the first UK appearance of the Vauxhall Mokka, which is due to appear in dealerships in November.

Complementing the Vauxhall stand at the conference will be an Eco Zone, which will have three low-carbon vehicles within. The Vauxhall stand also includes an Insignia, which includes a rugged tablet dock. A Vivaro Police Support Unit will also be on show.

The Eco Zone also plays host to the European Car of the Year, the Vauxhall Ampera. Alonside it will be a Corsa, boasting CO2 emissions of 88g/km and a Hydrogen-4 fuel cell concept.

One of the main centrepieces will be the award-winning Police Ampera which predicts future crime hotspots. It also features internal and external cameras, while the Vivaro is able to send live footage to other vehicles in the field.

“We have the largest and most impressive range at the event this year, which reinforces our position as the UK largest supplier of Police vehicles,” said Dick Ellam, Vauxhall Special Vehicles Manager.

“The conference is a fantastic opportunity to show the wide range of products and cutting edge technology Vauxhall has to offer Police forces. Our strategy is to provide affordable technology to support Police Fleets in these times of financial austerity.”

The award-winning civilian Vauxhall Ampera is currently available from £29,995, and is eligible for the government’s £5,000 plug-in grant. The Ampera is also Congestion Charge exempt as well as tax exempt thanks to its low emissions.
