The mayor of Ciudad Valles, Mexico, recently ordered 15 of the new all-electric Cybertrucks manufactured by Tesla Inc.

Mayor Adrián Esper Cárdenas said the Cybertrucks will be used for police patrols and other services in the central Mexican city of 176,935 people.

“I reserved 10 two-motor and five three-motor models,” Cárdenas said during a press conference Nov. 29, according to Mexican news outlet El Imparcial.

“It’s not about speed because we don’t want speed. What we’re looking for is power in order to pull water pipes, the garbage trailers. They’ll have twice the loads of a normal truck,” Cárdenas said.

The Cybertruck was unveiled during a glitzy event in Los Angeles on Nov. 22.

According to Tesla’s website, the new truck will come in three versions: a single-motor Cybertruck starting at $39,000; a dual-motor model for $49,000; and a top-of-the-line three-motor variation for $69,900.
