Colorado divisional vans will feature more tech than their Commodore based predecessors
Holden and Victoria Police have joined forces for the roll out 240 all-new Holden Colorado based divisional vans from February 2018.
The new divvy vans are based on the Colorado 4×2, but have been modified to suit Victoria Police’s specific requirements. Changes include increased ride height to give police officers a more commanding view of the road and to improve ground clearance. It’s also said to be the safest divvy van ever with police members protected by six airbags inside the cabin.
If you find yourself locked up in the two person custody pod, you’ll be treated to air conditioned comfort, but 360 degree camera will be there to monitor your every move. There are brighter lights and louder sirens, so you’ll definitely see and hear the Colorado divisional van coming.
Holden will also supply 40 dual cab 4×4 Colorado police vehicles that will be decked out with bull bars and winches. These vehicles will be designed to go off road and will be deployed in parts of regional Victoria.
Michael Filazzola, Executive Director of Sales, said, “Holden’s Australian engineers have worked collaboratively with Victoria Police to create a vehicle that is not only designed specifically for Australian conditions but is the safest vehicle possible to protect their frontline members.
“The Holden Colorado offers Victoria Police the leading safety and performance attributes needed for modern policing.”
The divisional vans have a maximum five star Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) rating, with safety features including airbags, stability control and ABS brakes.”
The roll out of the Colorado divisional vehicles will commence in February 2018, with the 4×4 versions coming on fleet from mid 2018.
