Dubuc Motors is about to start taking orders for the Tomahawk: a devastatingly gorgeous $125,000 electric sports car that has a range of 370 miles and goes from zip to 60 in a whopping 3 seconds. "Take my money."
The company says the spacious 2+2 seater will be built in North America (hopefully in the USA, otherwise they'll get a call from Trump) and will
It's the culmination of 12 years of difficult R&D for the two owners, who say they're "ordinary guys" who wanted to find an alternative to the Big car companies. Mission Accomplished, looking at the curvy beauty that is the Tomahawk.
You can reserve one of these monsters for $5,000 on their website. They'll come in six colors: green, black, two tone, red, yellow, and orange. The company plans to begin production this year.
The Tomahawk features twin electric motors - in the front and rear - sleek scissor doors, a panoramic roof, a built-in WiFi hotspot, hands-free voice commands, and a live 360 degree camera. The car is made of aluminum with a carbon fiber interior. The ride height can be raised or lowered using an adjustable air suspension.
The exterior almost speaks for itself. A gorgeous cab-forward design is very American, and signals strength and vigor, like a cat ready to pounce. The aforementioned 0-60 in 3 seconds figure shows it's not all just posturing. The Tomahawk is the first model of many to be commercialized from a universal chassis, which also allows for the production of other electric vehicles targeting niche markets within the industry.
The "blacked out" rear panel is amazingly handsome, with tail lamps pushed as far as possible to the edges, making the car seem very wide indeed.
