The Guardia Civil has taken delivery of 157 electric motorcycles that will be incorporated into the fleet of the Nature Protection Service (SEPRONA)
This amount represents a 16% increase in the motorcycle fleet and is the largest acquisition that has been made by a police force in Spain.
María Gámez, the general director of the Civil Guard, was present at the delivery ceremony of these new electric vehicles that took place in Madrid on December 12.
The director also visited the facilities of the Guardia Civil Mobile Material Service in the capital and highlighted that the incorporation of electric and hybrid vehicles is a commitment of the service that is included in its Sustainability Plan.
These motorcycles have been acquired through the Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan at a cost of €2,189,000.
The brand name of the new motorcycle is ZERO, model FX ZF7.2, which has an operating span of up to four hours. In addition, they all come fitted with a police kit, which includes a rear grill and transport bag, police lights and siren, fist protectors, and underbody and side protection.
This model was chosen for its agility, its economy of use, and the ecology of its operation. It is also very quiet, making it ideal for most operations in rural areas.
SEPRONA is the Nature Protection Service and is a unit of the Spanish Guardia Civil responsible for nature conservation and management of the hunting and fishing industry.
