Must See! Electric police car runs out of battery mid-chase

A Tesla police cruiser quit on officers in Fremont, California, at the worst possible time.

The electric vehicle ran out of battery in the middle of a high-speed pursuit. Other police vehicles had to then take over the pursuit.

The police spokeswoman says the Tesla’s battery was at least half-full at the beginning of the shift, which is in line with general guidelines.

Police still say the incident didn’t change how they feel about the vehicle, which is being tested as part of a pilot program.
