The official Dubai Police page on Twitter documented the announcement of the joining of an American pickup that is said to be “armored” to the fleet of Dubai Police cars, which is led by the speed legend Bugatti Veyron.
You must have guessed that this new vehicle is Tesla Cybertruck – the electric pickup truck, which was revealed a week ago during an official event. An event that brought a lot of embarrassment to Elon Musk when the window glass of this vehicle was broken despite Tesla’s proud owner assurances that windows could withstand an iron ball thrown at it!

However, Dubai police now seem focused on acquiring electric vehicles and adding them to their fleet of premium cars, making the choice of the fully electric American pickup comprehensible! If you remember, the newest cars to join Dubai police fleet were the Italian car Maserati GranTurismo, and the electric Chevrolet Bolt.
Of course, Dubai police must have chosen the top version of Tesla Cybertruck, which is powered by three electric motors and an all-wheel-drive system. This version can accelerate from 0 to 96 km / h (60 mph) in just 2.9 seconds, it can travel the quarter-mile in 10.8, and it can travel up to 805 kilometers per electric charge.
Tesla Cybertruck pickup has great off-road performance capabilities and its ride height can go up to 40.6 cm off the ground!
As we mentioned before the price of the latest American pickup starts from 39,900 US dollars equivalent to 149,625 Saudi riyals in the basic trim-level, but the version we are talking about in this article, which will join the Dubai Police Force, is priced at 69,900 US dollars equivalent to 262,125 Saudi riyals.
It seems that Tesla truck prices were just right for many people, and just two days after the launch of the boldly designed electric truck, Elon Musk announced that the number of pre-booking requests for Tesla’s Cybertruck pickups exceeded 146,000 order!
