|Breakthrough Multi Mission Vehicle Drives Company Forward|
CONNERSVILLE, Ind - Tuesday, December 18th 2012 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In a bold strategic move forward, Carbon Motors announced today that it will begin taking orders for the Carbon TX7 – a breakthrough, Multi Mission Vehicle (MMV) offering integrated incident command, surveillance, prisoner transport and personnel carrying capabilities in an innovative and flexible package not available in the marketplace today (photos here). Deliveries are slated to begin in late 2013 ahead of full-scale production of the Carbon E7.
Law enforcement agencies currently deploy a variety of singularly focused, specialty vehicles in situations such as disaster management, search and rescue, warrant service, perimeter security, etc. These vehicles can range in price from several hundred thousand dollars, up to $2 million and carry extremely high operating costs.
With a starting price of only $149,950, the TX7 reduces government expenditures by delivering a more affordable and flexible vehicle that is deployable more frequently and under a broader scope of scenarios with four-wheel-drive, a V8 clean diesel engine, 6-speed automatic transmission and 10-passenger seating capacity. For communities promoting an environmentally responsible approach, a compressed natural gas (CNG) powertrain will also be offered. Infrared, thermal imaging and weapons of mass destruction sensors – chemical, biological and radiation – further enhance its mission readiness. Orders may be placed at www.carbonmotors.com by authorized law enforcement authorities globally.
"As we announced in March, we have committed to secure the financing for the Carbon E7 privately, and the Carbon TX7 is an integral strategic part of moving Carbon Motors from a start-up company to a full operating company ahead of producing the highly sought after Carbon E7,” said William Santana Li, chairman and chief executive officer, Carbon Motors Corporation.
The Company also announced today its first stop on the 2013 Pure Justice Tour. After completing 73 stops in 25 states, Carbon Motors will make its first stop outside of the USA at the Intersec Conference being held in Dubai during January 15 – 17, 2013. Over 35 countries have requested exports of the Company’s products to date.
