The Dubai Police already has some luxury sports cars in its fleets such as the Lamborghini Aventador, Bentley Continental GT, McLaren, Bugatti Veyron, and the Mercedes G Wagen. Now, the Chevrolet Bolt EV has been added as well. One of the reasons to add an electric vehicle to the Dubai Police fleet is Dubai Green Mobility initiative through which the UAE aims to increase awareness about conservation and promote the use of electric cars. A total of 8 Chevrolet Bolt EVs have been added to the fleet and they will soon be seen patrolling on the streets of Dubai. The President and Managing Director of General Motors Africa and the Middle East, John Roth mentioned that the company is proud to support the Dubai’s Green Mobility Initiative.

Volkswagen announced today that the VW Microbus, the beloved van popular in the Sixties, will be making a comeback in 2022. CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen, Hinrich J. Woebcken added: “We are delighted that our parent company has taken the decision to produce the I.D. BUZZ. This vehicle is the perfect balance between emotion, usability, and sustainability, while also showcasing our technological leadership. The high seating position, cargo capacity, overall versatility and all-wheel drive option packaged into such an appealing design is just what our customers want from us. And it’s the perfect fit for the zero-emissions American lifestyle.” The I.D. BUZZ won’t just be a passenger vehicle. Just like the classic T2, the I.D. BUZZ will both haul people and haul freight. "Along with a minibus version, we'll also be offering an I.D. BUZZ CARGO variant for zero-emissions delivery of goods,” said Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles CEO Dr Eckhard Scholz. "With Level 3 autonomous capability, this is an ideal concept for an electric van, particularly for delivering packages and goods to the inner cities." Although Volkswagen's oldest and newest Microbuses will be separated by more than seven decades when the new model is launched, the I.D. BUZZ undoubtedly has the original's genes, as it offers maximum utilization of space on the footprint of a mid-size passenger car. Based on the new all-electric architecture, the production version of the I.D. BUZZ will incorporate many design ideas from the concept car, including multi-variable seating, interactive connectivity, and highly automated driving. Volkswagen is targeting a 2020 launch of its ID line of e-mobility vehicles with the compact ID hatchback first, followed by an as-yet unrevealed ID SUV and then the ID Buzz van sometime between 2022 and 2025.
This seems like a big fun for the long haul tourer to enjoy free clean energy on the go: http://www.mobilesolarpower.net/products/ms-series/ Now only thing left pending for Tesla or other battery car manufacturer to clad the solar panel on the car body and have completely free charging on the go without this big trailer. I'm sure in next few years we will see that as well.
