The Royal Malaysian Police’s (PDRM) patrol vehicle fleet replacement exercise continues as they have put in another order for 850 new vehicles. The new vehicles consist of 197 units of Proton X70s and 653 units of Honda Civics.
The Proton X70 is the third model that PDRM is using to replace their ageing fleet of Proton Waja and Proton Preve patrol cars following the purchase of the 2020 Honda Civic FC facelift and the 2019 Toyota Corolla Altis.
As of early June, PDRM has already received delivery of the first batch of Honda Civic 1.8 S patrol cars. The delivery of the remaining units is expected to be completed by the middle of June.
With the new order in for another 653 units, this will bring the total of Honda Civic in the PDRM fleet to 1,078 units.
Delivery of the new batch of vehicles is expected to start in July and the overhaul exercise is expected to be completed in September. With the new batch of cars coming in, PDRM will soon be chasing down crime in a total number of 1,275 new vehicles.
