Carbon E7: Purpose-built
Carbon E7: Purpose-built
Unlike other police cars, start-up automaker Carbon Motors intends to sell this car only to police departments for use as a purpose-built law enforcement machine. There will be no civilian version.

When completed, the Carbon E7 will get to 60 miles per hour in just 6.5 seconds, according to Carbon Motors. At the same time, the company expects fuel economy of 28 to 30 miles per gallon. To make that possible, the E7 will use a turbocharged diesel engine producing up to 300 horsepower and 420 foot-pounds of torque. Top speed will be over 150 mph, according to Carbon Motors.

The Carbon E7 will be built around an aluminum skeleton that will provide structure and impact safety. Colored dent-resistant body panels will be affixed to that frame as the car is built.
