The National Police Corps (CNP) of Spain has taken an important step to renew its vehicle fleet in the Canary Islands.

Has the Spanish National Police really turned 200 years old? Some historical data

This Tuesday, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 174 new police vehicles were presented for the Canary Islands Police Headquarters, which were unloaded in the port and lined up on the docks. You can see here a video published by the National Police that shows the unloaded vehicles with all the lights on:

According to the press releases published by the National Police and the Ministry of the Interior, the new vehicles are divided into three groups:

  • 81 of the plug-in hybrid SUV vehicles intended for patrolling, with the ZERO label and purchased with European funds for an amount of 3,233,325 euros.
  • 30 ZETA type SUV vehicles (as the CNP calls the vehicles intended for the protection of property and people and maintenance of public order) with a microhybrid engine and ECO label, which have meant an investment of 953,016.90 euros.
  • 63 vehicles intended for other services, which have been financed one hundred percent from the European PRTR funds for an amount of 1,940,085 euros.

Although neither the National Police nor the Ministry of the Interior have indicated the models, in the images you can see Citroën C5 Aircross SUV (probably the Plug-in Hybrid 225 model, judging by what the notes indicate press), a model capable of reaching a maximum speed of 225 km/h. The 81 plug-in hybrids would be of this model.

In the images you can also see Nissan Qashqai J12 SUV, third generation. Surely the 30 ZETA-type SUV vehicles correspond to that hybrid model, with a maximum speed of 196 km/h.

These vehicles arrive at a time when the Canary Islands are suffering an unprecedented wave of illegal immigration, with almost 40,000 illegal immigrants arriving there in 2023, more than double that of 2022. This It represents a great challenge for the Security Forces, which often find themselves with insufficient means to deal with this problem.
