Scotland Yard has announced that in four years half of its fleet will be made up of electric or air-powered vehicles.
The London police already have about 140 Toyota Priuses in use and a few all-electric smart fortwos. The stations using the smart fortwos have electric charging stations on the premises. The service hasn't said what air-powered vehicles are being considered.
