Montreal Man Builds The Next Electric Car

Montreal is slowly becoming a leader in the growing industry of electric cars and vehicles. Not only is the city now home to the largest electric car service centre on the continent, with plans to "electrify" the city's bus and taxi fleets, but Montreal may now be home to the next evolution of the electric car with The Tomahawk.

Montrealer Mike Kakogiannakis of Dubuc Motors SLC is the designer behind the Tomahawk, which is currently being marketed as the "first and only all electric sports car offering an extended range." The car's specs include being able to go from 0-60 in just over 3 seconds, reach a top speed of 140mph, and has an extended range of 275 miles, along with being the first electric vehicle with adjustable height air suspension.

Dubuc Motors is now seeking investors for the Tomahawk electric sports car, with plans to release the vehicle in 2016. The projected price is set for under 100k, making The Tomahawk more affordable than a Tesla, but still a little out of most people's price range.

A taxi vehicle is also in the works by Dubuc Motors, which will use the same chassis as the Tomahawk. Also worth noting is the fact that if all goes according to plan with the prodouction of both cars, Dubuc will be the first Canadian automaker of electrically powered vehicles.
