The 800-HP Tomahawk Claims To Be The Quickest-Accelerating Car Ever


How does 0-60 mph in 2.0 seconds grab you?

There’s a new all-electric hypercar in town and it’s called the Tomahawk. Dubuc Motors, a clean technology firm out of Quebec, Canada, is behind the 2+2 EV and claims its creation can sprint from zero to 60 mph in just 2.0 seconds. That would make it the quickest-accelerating car on the market. With a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery supplying four electric motors, one powering each wheel, the Tomahawk has 800 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque at its disposal.

Combined with a lightweight carbon-fiber body, the Tomahawk also boasts a 370-mile range. With a similar footprint to a Lamborghini Aventador, the Tomahawk weighs in at 1,928 kg, distributed 50/50 front/rear, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 415 hp-per-ton. The all-electric hypercar is also capable of 1.2 g of lateral force. There’s ample room for four passengers, two luggage storage areas at the front and rear, and a screen that offers a 360-degree view of the vehicle. The Tomahawk appears to have all the ingredients, as well as a stylish design, to be a success. However, this largely depends on convincing investors to fund the project.

According to Autocar, Dubuc Motors has begun a crowd funding process, encouraging investors to purchase shares ahead of the company being listed. If successful, the Tomahawk could see production as early as 2018. A few years ago, Dubuc was offering a similar model as a $30,000 kit car, but has obviously pivoted from that venture in order to take advantage of the booming EV market. Here's hoping it enjoys more success with its latest project. The world needs more fast cars, after all.
