The first ever Police-spec XF is about to go on patrol across the Midlands. The Central Motorway Police Group has bought seven high performance Police vehicles based on the award-winning Jaguar XF Diesel S model.
The Police-specification Jaguars feature the 275PS 3.0-litre Diesel S engine and a ‘Police Pack’ which includes a roof mounted light bar with 3600 blue flashing lights and integrated side alley lights, blue and white flashing LED lights inside the front grille, side mounted blue flashing LED lights, blue and red flashing LED lights integrated in the rear light clusters and a Home Office-specification electronics system that powers a full suite of electronic equipment.
Geoff Cousins, Managing Director for Jaguar Cars UK, said: “Police drivers demand the very best from their vehicles – power, performance, safety and comfort are all very important, while their fleet managers are looking at good environmental credentials and strong residual values to ensure value for money.
“Police forces across the country have been evaluating the XF and we are delighted that the team at the Central Motorway Police Group has chosen Jaguar to join its fleet.”
The Central Motorway Police Group patrols motorways across Staffordshire, Mercia and the West Midlands and the seven XFs will be put to work throughout those areas immediately.
