The Hastings-on-Hudson Police Department in Westchester County, New York, has added a Tesla Model Y to its fleet of police cars. While the Model 3 has been used as a police vehicle before, this is the first Model Y to be officially revealed as a police vehicle.

The department announced on Facebook that it’s “the first Model Y that has been outfitted with lights, sirens, and a radio for police use – in the whole country (maybe even the world!).” They also say the Model Y has been equipped with a low-profile Whelen CenCom Core Lighting system that features automation and remote connectivity.

As of recent, we have begun to see more an more of Tesla’s vehicles being used for public services. Notable examples include this Model 3 taxi in NYC, as well as as a Model S police car in California, a Model X police car in Australia , and a Cybertruck been ordered by the police in Dubai.

It should be noted that this Model Y won’t be serving as a patrol car but will be assigned to the detective division. That seems to stem mainly from an efficiency and range anxiety standpoint, since the type of driving patrol cars do is more conducive to a heavy fluctuation in range, and the type of driving done by detectives is likely more controlled and calm.

In addition, this is not the first Model Y to be used as a police car, just the first to be officially unveiled. Police departments in Fremont, California and Spokane, Washington have also been testing out the idea, but have yet to officially unveil the cars to the public.

The Model Y in question is a Long Range model, and the Hastings-on-Hudson Police Department estimates a saving of $8,525 in gasoline costs over five years. While it might not sound like much, as more electric vehicles are introduced to the fleet those savings will start to add up. It still begs the question, though, if the extra cost of the Model Y is worth it over the other options.


Automakers require a steady stream of content for their social media channels and sometimes it’s not exactly well thought-out.

BMW USA appears to have joined that club as the company reportedly posted this video on Instagram, before deleting it.

As you can see, it features an M2 racing around a track as its odometer turns from 2020 to 2021. The clip was designed to celebrate the New Year, but that’s not why it’s drawing attention.

If you turn on the sound while watching the video, you’ll hear something other than a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six. It’s not entirely clear which engine the soundtrack was taken from, but it sounds suspiciously Italian and like something with a few more cylinders. Redditors have speculated it is Lamborghini’s V10 but, regardless, it’s no M2.

While the lack of a verified check mark raised a few questions about the authenticity of the video, a little digging suggests BMW USA did post the clip on multiple social media sites before deleting it. In fact, it still remains live on a handful of pages for BMW dealerships.

Needless to say, it’s a little embarrassing and fans were quick to call the company out. However, some people have suggested the clip was created by a third-party or a hapless intern and that seems reasonable enough. Of course, someone likely had to approve the video before it ended up on social media.

That being said, it’s not the worst thing in the world as the clip was created as a fun way to the mark the beginning of 2021. It backfired, but it’s not exactly the first time enthusiasts have complained about artificial noises.
