Electric Police Car In San Francisco Area Runs Out Of Power During Chase


The Tesla police car ran out of juice while chasing a suspect.

The officer in the electric patrol car tried to pull over an individual for a routine traffic stop.That person took off.

During the chase, the officer told dispatch, “just realized I am down to six miles of battery on the Tesla, so I may lose it here in a sec.”

The pursuit was ultimately called off because the suspect's driving deemed further pursuit unsafe.

A spokesman with the Fremont Police Department says that it remains unclear why the department’s Tesla wasn’t fully charged at the time of the pursuit.

Fremont Police are part of a six-month pilot program with Tesla electric cars to see how it integrates into the force.
