Tesla’s Cybertruck raised a few eyebrows when it was announced. It sports an odd shape and for some reason, Tesla decided to give it a reinforced body and windows as well. However, it seems that despite some of the questionable design choices, there are many who are on board with this, such as Dubai’s police force.
In a tweet by the official Dubai Police Twitter account, they have announced that they will be adding the Cybertruck to their vehicle fleet. However, the tweet mentions that the Cybertruck will be added in 2020, which is odd because production of the vehicle is only expected to begin in 2021. We’re not sure if it’s a typo or if the Dubai Police will be given early access, but either way, it seems that they are interested in it.
That being said, some have pointed out that the Dubai Police seem to have a penchant for having an eclectic choice when it comes to police cars. For example, one of the cars part of its fleet is an ultra-rare Aston Martin One-77, which hardly seems like the kind of car you want to be chasing criminals down with.

In the meantime, despite the odd shape and design of the Cybertruck, Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk had previously boasted how the company had received more than 140,000 reservations for it. Whether or not those reservations will stick until the vehicle rolls off the production lines remains to be seen.
