A MEXICAN police force is arming themselves with a fleet of bulletproof Tesla Cybertrucks.
Cuidad Valles officers will soon be behind the wheel of the hulking electric trucks after their mayor Adrian Esper Cardenas placed an order for 15 models.
The massive motors will be used for policing duties in the central Mexican town, which has a population of just 176,000 people.
The mayor even paid £ 1,124 out of his own salary to reserve the trucks, which is what Tesla is asking for pre-orders.
And he hopes to use the zero-emission vehicles for garbage collection and moving water pipes, as well as day-to-day police tasks.
Cardenas said: "We'll take a photo and send it to Elon Musk, see if he gives us a discount.
"It's not about speed, because we don't want speed
"What we're looking for is torque in order to haul water pipes, the garbage trailers. They'll have twice the loads of a normal truck."
The electric motor has a price tag of just over £ 31,000, meaning the entire fleet could cost close to £ 500,000.
The six-seater also boasts ultra-strong panels that are made of the same alloys found on spacecrafts and has an estimated battery range of 500 miles.
The force isn't the only government agency which has shown interest in the motor, with the Dubai recently sharing its own design of the Cybertruck.

Tesla founder Elon Musk was recently left red-faced when the so-called armoured glass was smashed by a metal ball during a live demonstration.
According to a video shown at the event, the Cybertruck was able to beat a Porsche 911 in a drag race and out-tow a Ford F-150 pick-up truck.
No release date has been set for the motor, but it is expected to be on the roads by late 2021.
