The Dubai Police department is officially planning on adding Tesla Cybertrucks to its fleet, Arabian Business reports.

The official account of the Dubai Police department tweeted an image of a Cybertruck with its logos on it with the caption “2020” on Tuesday.

Officer Musk

The news comes after Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted Wednesday that the oddball electric pickup has already received 250,000 pre-orders.

Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri told Arabian Business that the new cars will help enhance security presence in tourist destinations.

The Dubai Police department already has a pretty astonishing fleet of luxury sportscars, including some of the fastest cars in the world, from the Bugatti Veyron to the Lamborghini Aventador.

“Bulletproof”

The Cybertruck will be a worthy addition to the fleet. It’s clad in a thick exoskeleton of cold-pressed stainless steel and features “bulletproof” windows — although the jury is still out on that last bit.

The unusual truck also has impressive specs when it comes to acceleration and range. A top of the range tri-motor variant — with a price tag of just $69,900 — can go from 0 to 60 in under three seconds and features an advertised range of over 500 miles.

As for how the Dubai Police is expecting to get their hands on Cybertrucks next year when production is expected to start in late 2021 is still unclear.
