Share post:

ROMEOVILLE, IL – In a bold move towards sustainability, the Lewis University Police Department (LUPD) announced Saturday that it will deploy an all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV as its next patrol vehicle. 

The vehicle, picked up at River View Ford on Wednesday, is currently at Emergency Vehicle Technologies for upfitting before it hits the streets.

The high-performance electric vehicle boasts an EPA-estimated range of 171-247 miles and can reach 0-60 mph in just 5.8 seconds. Charging for now in Lot F, the university plans to add many more charging stations on campus to support the new patrol vehicle and other electric vehicles in the future.

Lewis University is a private Lasallian university that enrolls approximately 6,800 students in a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and accelerated programs. The university’s commitment to sustainability has been an ongoing priority, with the LUPD’s latest initiative being just one of many.
