US Police forces are apparently very bored with their current rides, as they are showing a great interest in Carbon Motors purpose-built E7 Police interceptor. Carbon Motors says they have already received 14,000 reservations from 400 law enforcement agencies in 48 US States. Take into account, they’re reservations and not actual orders. The agencies are waiting for the company to confirm the pricing and then they finalize the deal.
And the price is a serious issue, because the E7 has been an expensive project to develop, and after all it’s purpose-built! That means every bit of it had to be designed from the scratch. One other major reason that will affect the cost of the vehicle is the powertrain, which is a highly advanced and efficient straight-six diesel engine coming straight form BMW factory in Munich.
