Carbon Motors Corporation has unveiled the Carbon 'E7' today. Tagged as the world's first purpose-built law enforcement vehicle, the E7 embarks on a nine city U.S. tour culminating at the 115th Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in San Diego, California where over 15,000 senior law enforcement professionals will gather from all around the world.
The overall concept of the E7 is to move away from retrofitting a standard passenger production vehicle to law enforcement specs, and instead provide a vehicle designed and engineered from the ground up specifically for law enforcement purposes.
With the voluntary input of over 1,700 law enforcement professionals, the vehicle will come fully equipped with technological and design elements including an ergonomically correct cockpit inspired by jet fighters and helicopters, a high powered clean-diesel engine capable of running on biodiesel, integrated external and internal surveillance capabilities, radar, LoJack, an automatic license plate recognition system, radiation and biological threat detectors and 360 degree, highly noticeable built-in LED emergency lighting. In addition, the 'E7' debuts Carbon's proprietary On-board Rapid Command Architecture (ORCA) with a large touch-screen main display and a separate touch screen keyboard providing world-class data communication and human-machine interface.
