Carbon Motors is getting closer to shipping the E7 car tailored specifically for law enforcement. We first reported about Carbon Motors back in 2007.
The car start-up is still at it and unveiled today a big deal with BMW. BMW will supply Carbon Motors with advanced clean diesel engines, complete with cooling and exhaust gas systems, and automatic transmissions for the Carbon E7, the world’s first and only purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle – designed by law enforcement, exclusively for law enforcement.

ORF reports that the BMW engines for the Carbon Motors E7 are built in the BMW motors plant in Austria and that the order is for 240,000 motors. There is no word about the time period of the contract.

Carbon Motors surveyed 400 law enforcement agencies to collect what policemen actually want from the ideal police car. One of the requirements was apparently that it looks cool.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
