The South Australian Police force has chosen the new Holden Commodore to renew the police fleet after it excelled in exhaustive test drives.
Holden is expecting to supply more than 100 new Commodore RS V6 all-wheel drive models to be used for general duties and highway patrol in South Australia.
Holden’s Director of Sales, Peter Keley, commented: “SA Police have run an exhaustive comparison of vehicles from every manufacturer and we’re proud our latest Commodore has once again proven its credentials when it comes to vehicle safety, specifications, durability, dynamics, performance and importantly manufacturer and servicing support.”
“Holden’s Australian engineers have worked collaboratively with SA Police to ensure this vehicle meets the leading safety and performance requirements needed for modern policing and importantly to ensure it is the safest vehicle possible to protect their frontline officers.”
Holden has been supplying the South Australian Police Force with the majority of their vehicles since 1948 with this latest incarnation continuing the tradition and marking 70 years of the partnership.
“We’re proud to see the new Commodore wearing the South Australian Police livery and look forward to seeing it in action on roads across South Australia,” Mr Keley added.
The new Commodores will gradually be rolled out to the South Australian fleet over the next two years.
Also using Holden vehicles is the Victorian Police Force with 250 purpose-built two-door divisional vans based on the Holden Colorado.
