New Homeland Security Company Mulls Alternative Site Locations; Meets with Economic Development Leaders
CHICAGO , Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon Motors Corporation announced today it will unveil the Carbon 'E7', the world's first purpose-built law enforcement vehicle, during the "2008 Pure Justice Tour" of nine U.S. cities starting in Chicago, Illinois and including San Diego, California for the 115th Annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference where over 15,000 senior law enforcement professionals will gather from all around the world.
The Carbon 'E7' -- the temporary program code used until the law enforcement community selects a vehicle name -- represents the next generation of law enforcement technology as the first vehicle in history designed and engineered from the ground up and bumper-to-bumper specifically for law enforcement operations.
Carbon Motors announced today the nine cities the 'E7' will visit during the 2008 Pure Justice Tour beginning Tuesday, October 14, 2008 in Chicago, IL. The tour will include stops in:
The vehicle was well received at recent VIP sneak preview events for Tier 1 suppliers held in Detroit, MI. Further tour dates and event details will be made available at www.carbonmotors.com and is also being promoted on YouTube.com through the video trailer "Ours is Real". The company will invite law enforcement and the communities they serve to view the 'E7' up close at each stop of the tour -- and in some cases the respective state's senior economic development officials.

Carbon's 'E7' was designed by law enforcement, for law enforcement. To date, over 1,700 law enforcement professionals, representing all 50 U.S. States and each functional discipline of law enforcement, have volunteered their time to serve on the Carbon Council, which provides direct and unfiltered interaction with the Carbon Motors team. As a result, the vehicle will come fully equipped with a comprehensive suite of purpose-built, state-of-the-art performance and safety features utilizing the latest advancements in defense and law enforcement technology.
"The 2008 Pure Justice Tour marks this revolutionary vehicle's debut to a first responder community that has waited far too long for a vehicle designed specifically for the high pressure and increasingly demanding work environment of law enforcement in a post-9/11 world," said William Santana Li , chairman and chief executive officer, Carbon Motors Corporation. "The military has long used purpose-built vehicles to accomplish their unique missions. Fire engines were specifically designed to provide firefighters with water, aerial ladders or other equipment to assist them in rescue work. And even postal workers have purpose-built trucks for delivering mail. Law enforcement, by comparison, has had to settle for retail cars designed for ordinary passenger use with haphazardly and dangerously installed law enforcement equipment. The women and men who protect our communities deserve better. Carbon's 'E7' will rectify this injustice."
