. I think all are LDi as noted by few on this thread - The black colored mirrors were the first hint.

So since yesterday, started noticing quite a few of them during my office travel.

Beige interiors & abuse are the 2 threats to this car to be used by the cops.

Bolero made so much sense.

So the cars are definitely customised specially for Bangaluru Police and images as it seems are not for representation purpose only but actual images of the car since it has Hoysala stamping on the car which matches with the TOI article and also the tablet can be seen inside the dashboard.
But that is some quick homework you did to confirm its an LDi Sushrutha

Adding more confusion to the pics, If all were LDi's how come they have Tachometers till 6K ? (Only Diesel has tacho till 6K )
But LDi Ertigas doesn't come with Tachometer

Yes, we all had this same doubt if you scroll up a few comments/pages - And then the dashboard layout, Steering buttons (Now Standard in VDis)

Possible - Few "upmarket" Police Stations will get VDi and few others LDi. This would be also to do with the criminal profiles and depending on the locality if the offenders who get picked up need Music to listen to while being ferried or the real music inside the cell once locked.

This is not the case - all the Ertigas are of the same LDi trim. Also, these aren't being allocated to particular police stations. Patrolling in Bangalore has been fundamentally changed with the introduction of these vehicles. Apart from approximately 1 Hoysala per station (little over a 100 police stations in Bangalore), all the others will be under the centralised control of the Command & Control Centre at the City Police Headquarters.

When an emergency call is received on Dial 100, the incident is logged on the system. The closest Hoysala (they will be at designated spots across the city, tracked by the Command Centre by GPS) will be notified through the ToughPad in the vehicle and they will proceed to the incident spot. The responding team's progress will be tracked live. They will act as first responders and get the situation under control to the extent possible until the jurisdictional police arrive. Post this, an incident report will have to be filed by the responding team on the same ToughPad available in their cars.

Also, another 200 Ertigas are being acquired so the total strength of 4 wheel patrol vehicles in the city would've increased from ~120 to ~550 in the matter of a 6 months - we should compliment the police on this. This is apart from the 1000 bikes being acquired to add to the 'Cheetah' fleet of patrol motorcycles in the city. They are making full use of the funds available under the Mega City Policing project!
