What’s the testing process of the Michigan State Police?  

The Michigan State Police testing includes acceleration, top speed, braking, and high-speed pursuit, as well as emergency response skills. The Michigan State Police is one of two law enforcement agencies that test new model year police vehicles each year and publishes the data for use by other agencies across the country.  

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E passes Michigan State Police evaluation  

Ford Pro submitted the all-electric police pilot car for testing in the Michigan State Police 2022 model year evaluation on September 18 and September 20. Later this fall, the Michigan State Police will post the findings of the vehicle tests on its website.   

“The fact that the Mustang Mach-E successfully stood up to the grueling Michigan State Police evaluation demonstrates that Ford can build electric vehicles that are capable, tough, and reliable enough for even the most challenging jobs. We understand the needs of our commercial customers and are committed to unlocking new electrification opportunities for them.
