Dubuc Motors has announced that its $125,000 or so electric sports car, the Tomahawk, is now scheduled for production in 2018, complete with 0-60 mph time in 2 seconds*.

The Tomahawk is to be equipped with a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery pack (apparently good for 370 miles of range), as well as four electric motors enabling AWD ... and 800 hp/1,000 ft lb of torque peak.

Those numbers are even better than was previously announced (perhaps pressure from the updated Tesla Model S P100DL and NIO EP9), and not at bad for a 2+2 car.

The only question is whether Dubuc Motors will be able to deliver on its promises** (see below).

"The Tomahawk's wide body design and sharp aggressive lines commands power with an impressive 0-60 in 2 seconds, making it one of the fastest cars in the world. Dubuc Motors, the company bringing this insane sports car to market announced today a glimpse of the specifications for its new 2018 model which will be produced in the thousands of units appropriately intended for a niche market within the luxury segment.

With a host of innovative technologies and a refined look from its prototype, the production model will be a force to be reckoned with as much for its breathtaking acceleration as for its convenience for daily commuting. A carbon fiber body and chassis dress the Tomahawk while the scissor doors invigorate its exotic look on the outside, the opulence of the interior invites comfort and connectivity in a sleek cabin along with an extra row of seats to appreciate the experience.

"We are pushing the envelope in terms of what is possible in the automotive industry to create a wow experience for our customers every time they get behind the wheel" says co founder Mike Kakogiannakis. The four motors supplying demented acceleration are independently coupled to each wheel for a balanced traction that can be used in either race or street mode depending on the senses evoked, promising an appealing alternative for bachelors and modern families alike.
