Tesla Cybertruck will join Dubai’s police fleet

Dubai Police has tweeted a picture of Tesla’s Cybertruck, hinting that they are considering incorporating the Tesla pickup into their force when it goes on sale in 2021.

The picture was first shared on Twitter by the government’s Dubai Future Foundation on Tuesday, carrying the Dubai Police Force’s colors and badge.

The Dubai police is well-known for keeping its forces well equipped with the latest in wheels. It has an impressive fleet of cars in its lineup, including a Bugatti Veyron that runs 253 miles-per-hour, an Aston Martin One-77, a Bentley Continental GT, three hybrid Porche Panameras, a Lamborghini Aventador, and two BMWs i8. Recently, the department added a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S. It also has a Ferrari in its fleet.

This tweet follows Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s tweet on Tuesday saying that the Cybertruck pickup had already received 250,000 pre-orders.

The Dubai chief of police, Abdullah Khalifa Al Mari, said that the new-age stylish pick-up will help in tightening the security presence in tourist destinations in the Emirate, according to the Arabian Business newspaper.

The Cybertruck’s space-age design and high-end features may have attracted the attention of the Dubai Police force.

Its outer body is made of thick cold-pressed stainless steel and has bullet-proof windows. Although the jury is still out on the worthiness of this claim. The windows were left shattered at a demonstration held at the unveiling of the pickup in Los Angeles last week.

The base model of the truck starts at $39,000. The unusual truck comes with impressive specs. The top of the range model with a price tag of $69,000 can go from 0 to 60 under three seconds and can cover over 450 miles. This model also uses a tri-motor system, which is a great amount of horsepower for any car.

The design choice of the Tesla Cyber truck has raised quite a few eyebrows, but  many seem to be impressed, including the Dubai Police force, with their futuristic designs and specs.

Concerns have been raised as it carries no shock-absorbing crumple zone to take the brunt of force in a collision. Its headlights emit a very thin strip of light. The concept car that was on display during the unveiling had no side mirrors.

The design infringes many roadworthy requirements by the law for vehicles, but maybe features may be incorporated in future iterations of the truck.

Designers and experts believe that Tesla auto designers have got a bit carried away in their designing specs. Design engineer Lee Walton told Wired that it is more of a concept car, built by many automakers, but then they do not put it up for sale as Tesla Inc has.

But some find the Tesla Cybertruck design and specs good value for money.
