BMW Diesel Engines To Power The Carbon E7

Carbon Motors : 24 March, 2010  (New Product)
Carbon Motors has struck an agreement with BMW for the German manufacturer to supply diesel engines, transmissions and cooling systems for the Carbon E7 purpose-built police car
BMW Diesel Engines To Power The Carbon E7
Carbon Motors and BMW Group have jointly announced a strategic partnership in a joint press conference held outside of the 2010 Government and Security/US Law Conference and Exposition. BMW will supply Carbon Motors with advanced clean diesel engines, complete with cooling and exhaust gas systems, and automatic transmissions for the Carbon E7, the world's first and only purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle - designed by law enforcement, exclusively for law enforcement.

"America's largest, and most visible fleets of government-owned vehicles, now in excess of 450,000 units, deserve the most durable, efficient and reliable powertrain available," said William Santana Li, chairman and chief executive officer, Carbon Motors. "The strength of BMW as a partner will allow us to provide our women and men in uniform with a diesel engine capable of the performance they desire along with the significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions that US taxpayers need."
It is estimated that the US law enforcement fleet consumes an estimated 1.5 billion gallons of gasoline and emits an estimated 14 million tons of CO2 annually; the Carbon E7 will cut that by up to 40% using clean diesel technology. Clean diesel is the technically correct solution for law enforcement operations due to its inherent performance, safety, operational, fuel efficiency, and durability characteristics.

"We are delighted to support Carbon Motors with our engine expertise," said Ian Robertson, member of the Board of Management of BMW. "BMW Group diesel engines have a clear lead over the competition when it comes to fuel consumption, emissions and performance. Today's agreement with Carbon Motors marks an important milestone in BMW's 35-year commitment to the United States market."

Also in attendance at the announcement were US Senator Richard Lugar and Indiana's Secretary of Commerce Mitchell Roob. "Carbon Motors has exhibited relentless and unwavering determination in its efforts to put Hoosiers back to work," commented Senator Lugar. "Today's announcement brings us one step closer to proving that America is back and is turning Indiana into the Silicon Valley of the auto industry."
