The Metropolitan Police Service in London (the Met) is testing a smart ed (electric drive), for routine police operations. Two of these zero-emission units will be deployed, one in Central London and the other at Heathrow Airport. The Met test belongs to a 100-vehicle smart ed test which is being conducted around Great Britain and some of the other sites have even made it to TV. The Met smart ed allows the Police to have police presence in very congested areas, thanks to its size. The smart ed has a top speed of 60 mph and has a range of up to 70 miles in between charges. It's estimated that the car achieves the equivalent of 300 mpg.
