    Carbon Motors has shaken hands with BMW announcing that the German automobile biggy will soon supply its acclaimed 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder diesel for purpose design police vehicles. These police vehicles to be built by Carbon Motors will use the same diesel engine found in the belly of the BMW X5 35d and 335d. The company has ordered for 240,000 engine units like these. The Carbon E7 vehicle cradling the BMW diesel will achieve a 40% CO2 reduction and fuel consumption. This police cruiser will cost more than the usual one’s we see around us today. The car can reach the 60mph mark in around 6 seconds. The BMW 335d gives a combined mileage above 20-mpg and a highway mileage around 30mpg. The E7 is expected to do the same.

    This is one cop car you wouldn’t like to see in your rearview mirrow tailing behind!
