As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the Croatian Interior Ministry will procure the aforementioned vehicles through an operating lease lasting four years. According to a report from Vecernji list, the estimated value of this purchase stands at a massive 75.2 million kuna, and that amount doesn’t include VAT, so it isn’t the final price.

For this move, the bidders are required to deliver new, unused vehicles and the Croatian Interior Ministry will primarily look at nine criteria when choosing the models. The first is the price, which carries 50 out of 100 points in this tender. Carbon dioxide emissions and engine power carry from two to ten points, and the authorised service network in the Republic of Croatia carries 20 points.

Support for keeping the vehicle in the lane, heating for the front seats, a factory tinted rear side and rear window of the vehicle, LED front headlights and the driver’s and front passenger’s seat boasting spine/back support carry two points in the tender.

The new police vehicles must also have a wealth of mandatory equipment: power steering adjustable in height and depth, an ABS anti-lock braking system, an electronic vehicle stability system (ESP) and Front Assist, or an automatic braking system in the event of a collision with a pedestrian or obstacle in front of the vehicle, airbags for the driver and front passenger, air conditioning, central locking and other equipment that is serially installed in new vehicles.

New vehicles are also being procured through financial leasing by the Ministry of Justice and Administration. For 5.6 million kuna without VAT, that ministry is looking for 10 vans and 12 caravans for the transport of persons deprived of their liberty. The van must have nine seats and the caravan must have five seats.

Both ministries are looking for diesel engines.
