Canada’s Ontario Provincial Police offered up a glimpse of the future of policing at this year’s edition of the Canadian International Autoshow: a Tesla Model X P90D outfitted for use as a pursuit vehicle.
According to Futurism, the SUV was given a black-and-white paint job, the OPP badge, and a working siren, but for the time being it’s just for demonstrative purposes. The vehicle was apparently a generous donation from a friend. OPP Sergeant Kerry Schmidt described the cruiser as “what the future of policing looks like down the road,” according to a report from Tech Crunch.
The Model X P90D won’t be road ready for Ontario’s police any time soon. The car has yet to undergo the necessary testing for official use.
