It seems as if everyone these days is either going electric or has expressed interest in environmentally friendly alternatives to the common drive. The Los Angeles Police Department is among one of the latest in the news to go electric. In fact, BMW of North America recently announced in a press release that it will supply the LAPD with 100 BMW i3 vehicles.

"This announcement comes after a field trial during which a BMW i3 was evaluated alongside other EVs on the streets of Los Angeles as part of the LAPD’s every day fleet," reports the press release. "Ultimately, the BMW i3 was selected due to a combination of EPA rated best-in-class efficiency, reliability and state-of-the-art ConnectedDrive services, which can be used to support fleet management applications. BMW’s extensive knowledge of charging infrastructure and the availability of a large network of BMW i centers for servicing the fleet in a convenient and cost effective way also played into the decision."

What do you think about this announcement? If you're also interested in taking the wheel of an electrified vehicle, may we recommend taking the 2016 BMW i3 for a test drive?
