“With the use of electric vehicles, we are fulfilling a cantonal and political mandate, primarily to reduce noise and exhaust emissions. When I see the progress this technology has made, it speaks much more for this purchase,”
“Thanks to more than 100 kW of power, more than 400 km of range, space for five people and significant loading space for equipment, the Kona Electric meets all the requirements for the cantonal police of St. Gallen. Compared to conventional vehicles, the purchase price is set a little higher,”
“However, this is offset by the Kona Electric’s lower maintenance costs and the general upkeep. This means that we are 100 percent electric and still cost-conscious on the road,” said Hanspeter Krusi, Head of Communications, St. Gallen cantonal police.
