Weer eens wat anders dan een Touran… Het volledige persbericht is weer bijgesloten. Wel mooi te zien dat de politiesnor bij de ‘Bobby’s’ nog steeds verplicht is!
It looks great in one of the nine optional colours already available, but now the new Jeep Renegade has a new colour scheme: blue and yellow stripes.
This striking Renegade police car is the result of a new partnership, announced this week, between Jeep’s Swindon-based dealership, T H White Fiat Group Brand Centre, and Wiltshire Police. In a first for the dealership, T H White has agreed an extended six month test drive with the force.
At the end of the test period, Wiltshire Police plans to buy the Jeep, which has been fitted with full police graphics, blue lights and sirens, and use it out of Gable Cross Police Station, Swindon.
The car, in 1.6 Diesel Sport specification, combines best-in-class off-road ability with world-class on-road driving dynamics. Inside, functional details crafted from high quality materials and using innovative colours ensure the Renegade will become an excellent addition to the force’s drivers. It’ll be a practical one too, courtesy of best-in-class interior space and clever, functional storage areas.
Stephen Botham, Fleet & Services Manager at Wiltshire Police, negotiated the deal with Lee Jones, Fleet Sales Manager – EMEA Region, FCA and T H White Fiat Group Brand Centre’s newly appointed Fleet Sales Specialist, Emma McArdle.
“We’re delighted to add the Jeep Renegade to our fleet of vehicles,” says Andrew Carr, Hub Superintendent, Gable Cross Police Station, Swindon. “It is the first Jeep we’ve used as a marked vehicle and we’re looking forward to the start of what we are confident will be a rewarding relationship between Wiltshire Police and T H White Fiat Group Brand Centre.”
“Handing over the Jeep Renegade to Wiltshire Police was a great moment,” says Emma McArdle. “We’re sure it will be the ideal vehicle for all their needs, both on and off-road, and we look forward to seeing it out and about on the streets of Swindon.”
