Italian State Police deploys Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross on fleet
The Italian State Police (Arma dei Carabinieri) has added the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to its vehicle fleet.
Handed over this week to the General Command in Rome, the vehicles will initially be based in the Carabinieri Commandos of Rome and Milan and used for special tasks – such as the transport of organs and blood – and for institutional operational needs such as the protection of the territory.
The latest deal builds on a history of collaboration between the two organisations. Mitsubishi has previously supplied the Arma dei Carabinieri with specifically equipped and armoured Shoguns for use in high-risk areas including Afghanistan and Iraq, where ruggedness and reliability are of utmost importance, as well as the i-MiEV electric city-car for use in low-emission urban areas.
