    NYPD Chevy Volt

    Not sure anyone has seen this. My buddy just snapped a pic of this. It looks mean as a cop car, especially for a "green" car.

    Very cool, I wonder more of these will start popping up. I when I went to NYC for the NY Auto Show earlier this year there were a ton of Altima Hybrid police cars.

    I see them almost everyday! It's only used for traffic enforcement, as is the Prius. But, yes, I think that the Volt looks really good in its NYPD uniform.

    Yes, the NYPD uses both Altima Hybrid and the Fusion Hybrid as patrol cars. I always found it kind of odd that they use those two hybrids for patrol vehicles, but the Prius (which is the first hybrid of their fleet) was only delegated to Traffic Enforcement.

    The cool thing about the NYPD is that their fleet consists of almost every vehicle imaginable. I have quite the collection of pictures that I have taken over the past couple of years of their fleet. Here is an interesting one taken at a subway station:

    They painted all the parts that should have been painted on the Volt in the first place and it makes it look so much better.

    ^Amen to that. I hate the look of that blacked out area on the doors. It looks so cheap. It makes it look like a second gen Lumina sedan to me - not good.

    These vehicles aren't up for patrol use but they have their place in a municipal fleet for support services such as administrative employees, parking and code enforcement, training transportation, and animal control. The current Impala is fuel efficient and cheap but old, and the new Caprice is roomy and a great performer but foreign built. I'd go with next year's AWD Charger or an AWD PI Utility (Explorer) for road Officers.
