During the oil embargo of the 70's, I remember a commercial on TV where it had a police force somewhere near Kentucky, Tennessee or the Carolinas area that had a police force of VW Rabbits. While the police force that had these was real, the people on TV were actors, of course.
Anyway, they had a guy who got pulled over for speeding and he kept saying "I can't believe I got pulled over by a Rabbit!" while the policeman wrote up a speeding ticket.
Why stuff like that sticks in my head, I have no idea.
People might not pull over for this thing as is looks far from a police car. No christmas tree on top either. What do these things cost vs. a crown vic?
Probably just another entity jumping on the "green" bandwagon. Once you figure everything up, it will cost as much or more than the Crown Vic. My niece is a state trooper. As outdated and slow as they are, she does not want to drive anything else.
