The Kia Stinger is set to join the Western Australian Police Force as the next generation of pursuit vehicles.

It follows an announcement earlier this year from QLD Police that the twin-turbo V6 Stinger will join the force in the sunshine state.

WA will be the second police jurisdiction in Australia to use the Stinger which replaces the previous Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore patrol cars.

Michelle Roberts, WA's Police and Road Safety Minister made the announcement last week and says the government will continue to provide funding so police can provide the best service they can for the community of western australia.

“These cars are fit for purpose and they are all 5-star ancap rated which is important for our officer safety,” says Roberts.

The Stinger, which is capable of hitting 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, is still being assessed by other states as an option for new police vehicles.

Kia says the cars will “join the force unmodified except for a plug-and-play wiring loom to manage the additional demands of multiple operational equipment systems.

Over the next 12 months, the western australian police department will introduce 50 kia stingers to the squad.
