A new Bangor police car is piquing interest as the department's 1st electric vehicle – Bangor Daily News

A new Bangor police car is catching notice and not just because of its small size: It is the department’s first fully electric vehicle.

The car is not a patrol car. It is primarily used by the force’s court officer, Doug Smith, who often goes back and forth between the police station and the Penobscot Judicial Center. It may also be used by the Overdose Response Team in the future, department spokesperson Sgt. Wade Betters said Wednesday.

It is one of two electric vehicles the city acquired in June, along with another used by the parks and recreation department, as part of a larger effort to reduce its carbon footprint.
