If you live in Portugal you will soon start seeing the Nissan Leaf with “Policia” badges on it, since Portugal’s police force has taken delivery of a fleet of the Leaf electric vehicles. The eight Nissan Leaf police cars will be operated by Portugal’s PSP (Polícia de Segurança Pública) the security force responsible for policing the large urban areas of the country.


The Nissan Leaf will primarily be used as part of PSP’s Safe School Program, but with flashing blue lights, sirens and clear ‘Polícia’ markings, they can be called upon to perform other police duties at any time.

“We pride ourselves in being the first police force in the world to incorporate cars with zero-emission technology as part of our 5,000 vehicle fleet,” said Superintendent Paul Gomes Valente, National Director of PSP. “We want to continue contributing to the reduction in pollution in large urban centers and the introduction of the 100-percent electric Nissan Leaf sets a new benchmark for our fleet.”
