The 2013 Carbon Motors E7 is a concept car that was meant to be a new purpose-built police car built by the Carbon Motors Corporation.

It was built in response to the need for a new purpose built police car to replace existing police cars such as the Ford Crown Victoria.

The prototype concept model was first revealed in 2008. Deliveries were expected by 2012 and was to be powered by a BMW diesel engine. It had everything that a cop dreams of already built-in, as opposed to having after-market equipment installed.

When it was retired, it was to be returned to the factory or sold to another agency, instead of going on sale to the public, and was supposed to compete with the Chevrolet Caprice, Chevrolet Impala, Dodge Charger and the Ford Police Interceptor in the police market.

The E7 never entered production, along with the TX7 van concept, as Carbon Motors folded in 2013.


Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)[]

The E7 appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an SCPD Highway Patrol unit, unlocked upon the player earning a total of 497,500 cop bounty.

As expected for a purpose-built police car concept, it has amazing offensive capabilities and is almost perfect for vehicular combat, returning above average durability.

It also offers the highest top speed in its class, due in part to the SCPD's vehicle tuning. The main downsides are in its sub-par acceleration, and its average handling with a steering response that is somewhat delayed.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)[]

The E7 appeared in some early internal review builds of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012), but was never released as part of the game.
