Sweden bans petrol and diesel – just not for the police

Sweden's government has banned public bodies from buying new diesel and petrol cars. That rule just doesn't apply to the police.

The police must follow the same rules as everyone else in traffic. That is, except when it comes to what they sing about.

In Sweden, the government has chosen to prohibit public bodies from buying new diesel and petrol cars. The requirements also apply to leasing and the purchase of light trucks. Already from this year, it has been forbidden to buy anything other than electric or hybrid cars. And from 2030, anything other than electric cars will not be allowed at all.

That is, for almost everyone else in the public system other than the police. Law enforcement and the Swedish defense are exempt from the requirement.

At first it dragged on to get an answer to whether there were exceptions to the ban. And only several days later could the authorities establish that it is there. Exceptions that is.

In 2030, Swedish police will be forced to make a choice anyway. At that time, Volvo, which law enforcement has otherwise adhered to, will no longer produce petrol cars. The police already cannot get diesel-powered Volvo models.

After announcing the end of production in September last year, in March 2024 the brand's last ever diesel car was built. It happened at the Chinese brand's historic factory in Torslanda.

Much apropos of the police's Volvos, it turns out that some equipment on a large number of the police's brand new cars is blatantly illegal and may therefore only be used to a very limited extent. Read more about it here .
