Tesla Model X vehicles has been converted to police patrol vehicles in Switzerland


 Tesla Model X vehicles has been converted to police patrol vehicles in Switzerland and it is finally going into operation after being held up over data security concerns.

The police said that the vehicles end up each costing about 49,000 Francs more than their usual diesel cruiser, but they expect that the Tesla vehicles will be better long-term investments due to “significantly lower costs for operation and maintenance and a higher resale value.”
In December, they started receiving the vehicles and converting them to police patrol vehicles.
 Months later, the Basel police department had yet to start using the Tesla patrol vehicles over some concerns about Tesla’s data security.

They believed that Tesla could track the location of the vehicles and even record everything that was said inside the vehicles, which they saw as a problem as part of their police work.

Tesla allows owners to disable location tracking and while the company does have voice-activated features, it doesn’t record what is being said inside its vehicles.

It looks like the Basel police got over their concerns and they have now started deploying the fleet of Tesla Model X police vehicles around town
