IONIQ Hybrid Unmarked Police Car.

About 3 or 4 days ago I saw a unmarked black Ioniq Hyundai Hybrid rush up the A40 in Acton with flashing blue lights in grill. Most probably had blue lights in rear to but didn't get to see that.

One would least expect it to be a police car, very cunning by the police.

I could have put this post in spotted but I thought it unique enough to post in it's own thread.

Hmmm. Wonder what their MPG would be like, since they wouldn't always have the luxury of being able to drive for economy and would probably have to make ample use of Sport mode at times....

A hybrid makes sense as a police car mostly because of the amount of time they sit stationary at idle. The additional torque from a stop would be helpful for them too.
Ford is making one for the police as well.

I would think the air dams on the grill that activate must have been removed because that's where the blue flashing lights were.
