Cybertruck Cosplays As Robocop in New Police UpfitUP.FIT
  • UP.FIT, a division of Unplugged Performance, announced that it will begin modifying Tesla Cybertruck's for police use.

  • Orders are now open, with UP.FIT predicting the first Cybertruck patrol vehicles will hit the streets later this year.

If a Tesla Cybertruck appears in your rearview mirror, you might choose to move out of the way, either to gawk at its angular bodywork as it drives past or out of intimidation from its towering, robotic face. But soon you might actually need to pull over for a Cybertruck, with UP.FIT—a division of Tesla modifiers Unplugged Performance—announcing that it plans to begin converting Cybertrucks for police duty, with the first deliveries expected later this year.

The Cybertruck won't be the first Tesla that UP.FIT has crafted for the fuzz, with packages offered for the Model 3, Model Y, Model S, and Model X. The Cybertruck will be fitted with an array of lights and sirens—including fender-mounted spotlights—along with a PA system and upgraded radio and computer systems. Departments can also spec a front push bar, and the patrol-ready Cybertruck rides on 18-inch forged wheels.


UP.FIT says it can also modify the Cybertruck for tactical, military, and search-and-rescue operations. The company can also add prisoner partitions, weapons' storage, and K9 enclosures. UP.FIT can beef up the brakes and tires too and modify the truck for "extreme off-road usage." Internet from Starlink, a subsidiary of Elon Musk's SpaceX, is also available.

UP.FIT touts the Cybertruck's so-called "stainless steel exoskeleton," referring to the truck as their "most ballistics capable" vehicle, with Tesla claiming the bodywork can withstand gunfire from some small arms. The company also praises the truck's handling as well as its driver-assistance tech when discussing why it believes the Cybertruck is the right vehicle for the job. No specific range or price was quoted, but UP.FIT says its other Tesla police vehicles typically average 270 to 300 miles of range and cost around $90,000.

UP.FIT says there is "substantial interest" in its police Cybertruck and says orders are now open, so keep your eyes peeled. Of course, it shouldn't be too hard to spot the hulking Cybertruck waiting on a highway median.
