Title:

title

Approval of and authorization to purchase (1) Tesla “Model Y” long range all-wheel drive Crossover / SUV from Tesla Inc., a sole source vendor, for the Police Department

End

 

Background:

The Police Department is requesting the City approve the purchase of (1) Tesla "Model Y" long-range all-wheel-drive Crossover/SUV patrol vehicle. This vehicle will be assigned to a traffic unit officer to replace an aging patrol vehicle. This will be the first all-electric police patrol vehicle deployed in the state of Oklahoma. Although the initial cost is significantly higher than traditional gasoline-powered patrol vehicles, the cost of ownership over the vehicle's life will be considerably less. This savings is generated not only by less expensive fuel costs but by significantly reduced maintenance costs. The police department tested a Tesla for one week and determined it exceeded the required needs of a police patrol vehicle. Tesla Inc. is a sole source vendor and manufacturer of this vehicle. This is currently the only all-electric vehicle capable of meeting patrol needs, including the required battery life. The proposed long-range model provides a range of 326 miles between charges.

Funds have been appropriated and are available in the Police Department's portion of the Sales Tax Capital Improvement Fund.

 

Cost:                                                                $52,290.00

Funding Source:                     Sales Tax Capital Improvement Fund 30, Project 2130350

Requested By:                      Brandon Berryhill, Chief of Police

Approved By:                      City Manager’s Office

Attachments:                                          Tesla Inc. Sole Source Letter and associated quote.

Recommendation:

recommend

 Approve and authorize the purchase of (1) Tesla “Model Y” long range all-wheel drive Crossover / SUV from Tesla Inc., a sole source vendor, for the Police Department.
