A powerful autumn storm cuts the power lines providing the small Norwegian town of Bodø with electricity. Ploddy the Police Car heroically pulls a new cable across the mountain and against the wind so the town can have light and heating back again. After finishing the job, Ploddy accidentally touches a live electric cable and is jolted by a powerful shock. Everyone in Bodø fears that the strain was too much for little Ploddy, but something wonderful happens and Ploddy returns better than ever as an electric car. Full of pure energy, Ploddy investigates the town’s missing water supply and the attempt by the Badger brothers to get rich selling bottled water during the crisis.
