Tomahawk pure electric supercar will be available in 2017

Do you remembered on the car figure named Tomahawk that have ever published by us in an article some time ago (jump to the article)? Lately, it seems as though automotive manufacturers are introducing new supercars on a weekly basis — and the impression is similar for the electric vehicle market In general, the total number of EVs sold is expected to increase from 2.6 million (2015) to over six million by 2024, said Dubuc Motors, who is looking to get a share of the pie with its Tomahawk supercar.

The Canadian company, based in Quebec City, will use a U.S. equity crowdfunding platform (StartEngine) to raise money for its electric model in hopes of selling it in 2017. 

"Equity crowdfunding is fueling innovation, enabling investors across America to support progressive companies like Dubuc Motors at a ground floor level," said Ron Miller, CEO of StartEngine.

The Tomahawk EV will be manufactured in North America, and will include an all-aluminum exterior, and scissor doors that Tech Vibes says can "move at a 95 degree angle." The model also features a panoramic sunroof, 360-degree cameras, navigation, wireless connectivity and more. For comfort and ease-of-mind, hands-free voice-activated commands, advanced collision warnings, and an onboard computer are also part of the deal.

Performance-wise, the supercar is capable of accelerating from zero-to-60 miles per hour in 3 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of 160 mph. The car also gets a 300-mile range, and uses two electric motors (one for the front, and one for the rear) and a single-speed transmission. It also features all-wheel drive, an adjustable air suspension for ride height, an aluminum sport double wishbone suspension (front and rear), and a flat undercarriage (perhaps for battery arrangement). Not all of the vehicle’s specifications have been revealed, but the automaker has included enough information to get enthusiasts excited about the 2017 launch.

The company is aiming to produce 1,500 units per year of its Tomahawk electric supercar, said StartEngine. The beast will be sold mainly in the U.S., Europe, and China, and will be priced from about US. $110,000 (similar to the now discontinued Tesla Roadster). It’s meant to "complete the Tesla line," said Dubuc Motors, who is aiming to capture a market of wealthy young buyers in their mid-twenties.
With production set to start next year, supercar enthusiasts with a preference for EV models can reserve their vehicle now with a $5,000 deposit. They can choose between several available colors, ranging from Electric Green, Night Rider Black, Burning Red, Screaming Yellow, Vibrant Orange, and Classic 2 Tone. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | DUBUC MOTORS | CNBC]
