New Zealand Police driving Holden vehicles for many more years to come.
Holden has held the current contract to supply vehicles to Police since 2006, including Holden Commodore as patrol vehicles and the SV6 model being used for highway patrol duties.
Holden New Zealand managing director, Kristian Aquilina says it has been an honour to provide police with great vehicles over many years.
“We feel very privileged to have been involved in the supply of Holdens for our police service over several years and are pleased that this will continue," said Mr Aquilina.
“Holden has worked hard to ensure that our vehicles are not only of a high calibre but they are also technologically advanced and great value for money.”
“This announcement is exciting for an iconic brand like Holden and shows that Commodore is not only relevant today but will also be relevant in the future.”
Police ran a Request for Proposal (RFP) and selection process over several months and have worked with the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment to negotiate the agreement as part of the All-of-Government (AoG) Vehicles contract.
It’s the first time Police patrol vehicles have been included in the AoG contract.
Holden is contracted to supply cars to Police for five years from July 1, with one right of renewal for a further five year period.
