Elon Musk responds to US Police after they made Cybertruck request

After years of development delays and manufacturing snags, customers started taking delivery of the long-awaited Cybertruck last month.

Now Rosenberg Police in Texas, United States, want in on the action, and have asked Tesla CEO Elon Musk if the newly-launched EV would make a “good police vehicle”.

Musk responded to the question and got the internet excited.

Taking to X, the official handle of Rosenberg Police said: “Spotted out in the wild. What do you think @elonmusk… will the #Cybertruck make a good police vehicle? It’s still hard to find new vehicles to replenish our older police units. Should we make the change in 2024?”

The police department also shared two pictures of the Cybertruck with one of their officers standing and posing next to it.

It wasn’t long before Elon Musk spotted the post and reacted by posting a “100” emoji, which is commonly used for general acceptance of an idea.

Since being shared, the police departments’ post has amassed over 373,000 views and has received close to 3,000 likes.

It seems people on the internet are behind the idea of making Cybertruck police vehicles.

“That light bar with police lights would look amazing and who doesn’t need bullet-proof resistant doors,” one user said.

“Police stations around the world are thinking about buying Tesla $TSLA #Cybertrucks to replenish their fleets,” added another.

“This is the next logical step for police and military to order big volumes of Cybertruck. This will make a big difference in safety and reliability,” a third said.

Funnily enough, this isn’t the first time there’s been a suggestion the Cybertruck could be turned into a police vehicle.

Just a few months ago, Oracle co-founder revealed he thought it would make a good police vehicle.

So much so, he unveiled his very own Cybertruck police vehicle, with all the bells and whistles.

Obviously not actual bells and whistles, as that’d be silly, but it was decked out with sirens and Oracle branding.

The billionaire, who claims to be a “close friend” of Elon Musk, unveiled the concept at the Oracle CloudWorld conference in Las Vegas back in September.
