    Segment Transcript

    I’m Laura Reynolds with CarPro.com.   Ford Police Brand Marketing Manager Greg Ebel talks about the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro SSV for police. Ebel: "Well the F-150 Lightning is a whole, it's such a great foundation. We've had a lot of interest from law enforcement just the nature of their duty cycle and there's a lot of equipment whether it be computers, on-board equipment, you know lights, radios, in that they have to up fit to integrate in it so the Lightning Pro can definitely right handle powering those sort of equipment, so say if you want to start off you're going into traffic patrol right, things like that so learning how does an electric vehicle you know work within the space.  Maybe you know integrating it into somewhat of your daily patrol knowing it's not a pursuit-vehicle, a pursuit-rated vehicle but still this is the first step. And one of the big key elements that has changed for us, so now we're you know, our group is known as Ford Pro and we're not just vehicles anymore we have a full one stop shop of solutions you know for our customers."  For more information on these and other vehicles, check out CarPro.com.
