This is the Henan Xinma Neighborhood Patrol Car, seen on the Security China exhibition in Beijing last month. The Neighborhood Patrol car is an electric vehicle developed for police patrol duties in local neighborhoods, compounds, and public parks. A neighborhood police station in China is usually very small, two officers and a dog, and they used to ride bicycles around their block. These days however the coppers have gone all electric.
