WA Police downsizing their cars to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

WA Police are planning to replace some of their six cylinder vehicles with more environmentally friendly four cylinder cars. The vehicles of choice are the Holden Astra turbo diesel and the Subaru Impreza WRX.

News.com.au report Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan as saying the smaller cars had an equal or better safety rating than the larger cars, produced fewer greenhouse gas emissions and were equally as quick. He expected four cylinder cars would make up about 30 per cent of 1200-vehicle police fleet within two years and that he would be the first to make the change, swapping his Holden Statesman for a four cylinder car.
