Tesla Model 3 joins Indonesian Police fleet in effort to promote EVs 01

In an effort to promote the use of electric vehicles in Indonesia, the Indonesian police force will be using a Tesla Model 3 in its fleet of patrol vehicles.

The Tesla Model 3 was received from Prestige Motorcars as a loaner unit. Prestige Motorcars is an official distributor for Tesla cars in Indonesia and is in full support of the Indonesian government’s push for EVs.

This is not the first electric car to be used by the Indonesian Police. Previously, the Indonesian police force has received 3 units of the Hyundai Kona Electric from Hyundai Indonesia.
