Canada's newest motor company Dubuc Motors recently previewed their 2017 Tomahawk electric sports car. Labeled by the company as the 'Tesla's cousin', it is a 2+2 AWD electric sports car that will feature the latest in automotive tech and software.

Constructed from recycled materials and aluminum components, the car has a shapely exterior design which consists of a distinctive grill, a muscular front end paired dual headlights housed in a sleek bezel, and a wide rear end accompanied by tapered taillights. It has large wheels and a scissor-door design on the side.

Inside, the interior dons a black interior trim, sport seats and a sport steering wheel. Dubuc Motors also stated that it can comfortably fit persons that have a height of up to 6'5” and weigh as much as 125 kg and its dashboard can be customized in the future.

Dubuc Motors has not yet released powertrain specifics but they did state that the car is capable of going from 0 – 97 km/h in over 3 seconds and can hit a top speed of 225 km/h. It has an extended range of 442 km and rides on an adjustable air suspension system.

The company is currently looking for investors for the production of the electric cars and has recently listed their business on website platforms, making it a public pool for investors.

“We are at the forefront of something huge! Millions of dollars in grants from the government are available, it's the perfect time to invest,” said co-founder and COO Mike Kakogiannakis.

By 2016, Dubuc Motors will reveal the 2017 Tomahawk and display a taxi vehicle that utilizes the chassis of the Tomahawk electric sports car.
