Two weeks ago, the Ministry of Defense announced the vehicles and the leasing companies that won the new tender for the supply of attached vehicles to IDF officers in the ranks of Lt. Col., Col. and Brigadier General.

Some of the models were hybrids, and one was even a plug-in hybrid.

But the Ministry of Defense and the IDF also chose the first electric models for the officers. However, their purchase has now been defined as optional and will only begin after the IDF arranges basic charging infrastructures for them, a matter for which staff work is currently being carried out.


News the list of models has arrived, one French that performs a historical closing of the circle, one a second Chinese model that will be mobilized after the Chery Tigo 8 chosen for officers with large families, and the third a non-recognizable version of a popular Korean model.

The price for citizens: between 156 and 190 thousand shekels

The nostalgic choice would be the Citroen e-C4, the electric version of the French crossover.

In the mid-1960s, the IDF attached the popular Heda Shavo to the commanders of the battalions and squadrons, as a replacement for the Willys vehicles assembled in Israel at Ephraim Illin's factory. Soon the officers will be able to choose a crossover, which next year will be upgraded to a 54 kWh battery and a driving range of about 400 km The price for citizens: NIS 170,000.

An option that in those days would have seemed imaginary would be the BYD Auto 3, a Chinese electric jeep, whose 60.5 kWh battery is enough for an official range of 420 km.

The price: NIS 156.5-165 thousand.

An option that already stars in the leasing companies in its other versions is the Kia Niro Plus EV, which will be the most expensive in the IDF's electric range. The Niro, free of exhaust pollution, has a 64 kWh battery that is enough for 427 electric kilometers. Full price: NIS 190,000.

Come back.
