Polaris GEM electric vehicles are trusted by police departments throughout the country as reliable patrol vehicles. Of the six model lineup, departments in big cities and small towns most commonly turn to the GEM eS for their daily patrolling and parking enforcement needs.
Street-legal on roads with posted speed limits of 35 miles or below, with the ability to be driven on a variety of terrains, officers can easily drive directly from trails, sidewalks, grass and sand onto city streets. The ergonomic design and open cab provide parking officers ample room to read meters and provide easy in-and-out access when further investigation is needed.
Backed by 60 years of Polaris performance and innovation, GEM vehicles are engineered with premium quality and provide users with unequaled reliability and confidence. The spacious cab provides comfortable transportation for two adults, while the 34” by 48” flatbed is capable of hauling up to 300 pounds of cargo, and can be customized with carrier options to suit a department’s specific needs. Each vehicle can be customized with a security light bar or beacon light so officers can make their presence known or for patrols at night.
In addition to the patrolling of streets, trails and beaches, GEM vehicles are used for special events and festivals to keep residents and visitors safe and secure. The vehicles are an ideal option for police departments on college campuses as they can quickly navigate parking lots, streets and maneuver walk ways with ease. With zero-emissions, the GEM’s eco-friendliness is also a benefit for police departments and municipalities focused on sustainability.
The fully customizable GEMeS ($8,999 starting MSRP) reaches a top speed of 25 mph and have an estimated range of 35 miles per charge (depending on temperature, grade, payload and driving style). After a full day of operation, officers can simply plug the charging cord into a standard electrical outlet and the six 12-volt flooded electrolyte batteries are able to go from zero to full charge in eight hours.
Like all GEM vehicles, the eS comes with a two year limited warranty, along with roadside assistance.
