In addition, Carbon has been notified by the US Department of Energy that its funding application has been deemed Substantially Complete, the company becoming thus eligible to get the $310 million loan it applied for.
“We commend the Administration for the ongoing efforts to move our country to a much more secure, prosperous, and green future,” William Santana Li, Carbon Motors CEO said.
“Given the challenges the nation faces there is no other answer than to move with immediate urgency to put Americans back to work on matters of national importance.”
Carbon Motors is currently hard at work on all fronts of its activities, as it prepares to enter law enforcement in the near future. The company talked to HOK Architects to create the campus to house the Carbon Motors and named Michael Cowley powertrain director.
“Mike has over 32 years of automotive experience with expertise centered on delivering new vehicle concepts and technology into production,” Trevor Rudderham, chief development officer of Carbon Motors said.
“His extensive global development knowledge marks him as the right person to deliver the aggressive fuel economy and emission reduction targets of the Carbon E7 program in-line with the Administration’s agenda, and to insure we provide a world-class, dependable and reliable powertrain to our law enforcement First Responders.”
