Carbon Motors has unveiled their TX7 Multi Mission Vehicle (MMV) in Dec 17, 2012 .
The TX7 will include infrared, thermal imaging and sensors for detecting chemical, biological and radioactive substances. Officials hope the vehicle will spur a market for greater cooperation—and joint purchases—among smaller police and fire agencies.
The TX7 will be powered by a diesel V8 with clean technology. The engine manufacturer has not been disclosed, Stacy Dean Stephens, Carbon’s chief brand officer and director of marketing communications, said. The four-wheel drive chassis to be used in the vehicle is on the market.
The TX7 has a starting price of $149,950, and Carbon Motors says it’s ready to start building them as soon as the second half of 2013.
