Carbon Motors, an automobile company that has produced a special law enforcement automobile, has just produced an open letter addressed to the White House Cabinet. The company wants the federal loan it requested two years back to be approved, so it can begin supplying the country’s police with vehicles.

Business wants to put bespoke cruiser on the streets

The E7 is a po-lice automobile produced by the Carbon Motors Corpora-tion that would be very beneficial to several law enforcement forces. The compa-ny hoped to obtain a loan it applied for two years back, according to Auto Blog. This loan would be given to the business under the Advanced Technology Automobile Manufacturing Program, which is an initiative the George W. Bush administration put together for the Department of Energy. There would not be any consumer versions of the car pro-duced, producing it solely a police automobile.

The White House Cabinet was given an open letter from the compa-ny recently. Hopefully this will allow the start of production on the first bespoke law enforcement interceptor.

An excellent car

As reported by Carbon’s site, the E7 police car should produce over 250 horsepower and obtain from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds. Its price is projected to be comparable with standard po-lice automobiles, which are typically retail vehicles with extensive modifications.

The two things that the Carbon E7 has over all of its competition is that it emits 40 percent less carbon than other police cars and gets an average combined gasoline mileage between 28 and 30 miles per gallon. According to the EPA, the 2009 Ford Crown Victoria gets 19 miles per gallon as a popular law enforcement vehicle.

BMW agreed to license its 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder diesel engine for use in the E7, accord-ing to AutoBlog. BMW currently offers a 3 series sedan, the 335d, and the X5d SUV with the 3.0-liter diesel in the U.S.

With over 20,000 E7 cruiser or-ders already in, the company could create 10,000 jobs in Connersville, Ind., to build the automobile. This would only be possible if the business were to get the $310 million loan.

Most popular diesel

The E7 cruiser would be the most used diesel vehicle on the road if it is able to produce the 20,000 vehi-cles that have been ordered with the loan.

The three most popular diesel automobiles are the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, the Volkswagen Golf TDA and the BMW X35d. The Jetta is the number one sold Jetta in the United States with 56,717 sold this year between January and July. The other two do not even come close in sales to the Jetta. Only about 3 percent of all passenger cars sold even have diesel abilities. Not very several individuals own a diesel automobile.
