Carbon Motors E7yet released, Carbon Motors is set to make a car designed from the start with law enforcement in mind.
The car will be built to last 250,000 miles, almost double that of a traditional patrol car, and is expected to get better gas mileage than current patrol cars.
As far as specifics for law enforcement, the company plans on adding ballistic protection to the frond doors and dash panel, designing a seat that allows better access to on-body equipment, and will include 360-degree surveillance capability for recording.
Like many other popular police cruisers, the E7 will be built with rear wheel drive for better handling, include a 3.0L diesel engine, and come with a six speed automatic transmission.
