Carbon Motors will put its E7 Police Car into production in 2012 and the brave men and women of the law enforcement, City Mayors, Managers and Council Members, the State Controllers and even the Federal Government are starting to recognize the benefits of this diesel police interceptor that will carry a BMW diesel engine.
“Carbon Motors has surpassed 14,000 production slot reservations for the Carbon E7,” the company said in a statement yesterday. “These reservations were made by over 400 law enforcement agencies in 48 US States, representing each functional area of law enforcement. At this rate, Carbon Motors fully expects to have production sold out well in advance of the first vehicle rolling out of the Carbon Campus in Connersville, Indiana.”
Carbon Motors has ordered a total of 240,000 diesel engines from BMW. The engine is the same twin-turbocharged diesel unit used in the BMW X5 xDrive35d and the BMW 335d and is good for 265-hp and a maximum torque of 425 lb-ft.
Carbon Motors will build the E7 in Connersville, Indiana.
