The Seaside, California Police Department has swapped out two of their old police cars to Tesla Model Ys.

The department says the model comes with unique induction wheels for better handling and better performance in wet conditions. The vehicles will also help reduce the city's carbon footprint and lower emissions.

The department is spending close to $354,000 on the Teslas and three Ford Hybrids, plus other costs associated with the electric cars. The funds are coming from the department’s supplemental law enforcement and asset forfeiture monies, , according to a report from KION news.
