Everyone knows that the Dubai police often use expensive sports cars. Among the brands: Bentley, Lamborghini and Ferrari. But now the Chinese Hongqi electric crossover has been added to the fleet. In early October, the Dubai police held a solemn ceremony of commissioning the Hongqi E-HS9 electric crossover, which was attended not only by the heads of the Dubai police and representatives of the Chinese brand, but even an honor guard on horseback.
And now about the characteristics. The power plant of an electric car can be exclusively all-wheel drive. The power of the front electric motor is 218 horsepower. The rear can be either the same or a more powerful, 333–horsepower engine. In the first case, the total power will be 435 hp, in the second more than 550 horsepower. There are three batteries to choose from: with a capacity of 84, 99 and 120 kWh. The power reserve varies from 460 to 690 kilometers on a single charge according to the Chinese CLTC method.
The cheapest Hongqi E-HS9 is offered in China at a price of 509,800 yuan (4.3 million rubles). The most expensive version costs 779,800 yuan (6.58 million rubles). In the UAE, the cost of these crossovers is about twice as high.
The police officer E-HS9 will be engaged in patrolling tourist areas. In addition, it is expected that law enforcement forces will soon acquire other Hongqi cars. For example, H9 sedans and HS7 crossovers.
