Ever wondered if the Tesla Cybertruck would make a good police vehicle?

No, don’t suppose you have, but Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison seems to think it would.

So much so, he’s just 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 is 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 on Tuesday.

“Our next-generation police car is coming out very soon. It’s my favorite police car. It’s my favourite car actually; it’s Elon’s favorite car,” Ellison said.

“It’s incredible. I know too much about it. Some of it is still to be disclosed. But, among other things, it’s very safe, very fast, it’s got a stainless steel body.

“And we don’t have to add cameras to it because we actually use their existing cameras and their screen to put our application on it.”

His presentation of the special Cybertruck was part of Oracle’s new first responder system, which uses satellite and terrestrial technologies to ensure that it will be a fail-safe mobile network.

Ellison isn’t the only one who thinks the Tesla Cybertruck would make a good cruiser.

Even Musk himself noted that “Cybertruck cruisers will be next-level” and that the all-electric pickup truck is “designed for Bladerunner”.

Musk has a point, as the Cybertruck greatly resembles Rick Deckard’s decommissioned Spinner from Blade Runner, from its angular shape to its large glass panels.

There are several reasons why the Tesla Cybertruck may be a good vehicle for police departments.

For starters, its tough steel exterior means that the all-electric pickup truck could take the necessary bumps and dings that come with the job.

Secondly, its large frame also means it could be an imposing presence on the road.

The only potential downfall might be the price – yet to be officially revealed –  which could put off police departments.
