Australian car manufacturing is a long way from being over, according to Tomcar Australia.
The Melbourne-based company has just sent us an update on its plans to commence production of its LV1 off-road electric car in November with the first customer deliveries expected in February next year.
Boasting peak power and torque outputs of 100kW and 300Nm, Tomcar CEO, David Brim, tells us the Tomcar LV1 has been designed to operate in the harshest of conditions, including Australia’s mines.
“We have been working with Energetique on this project for over a year, keeping it secret while creating the world’s toughest EV - to be built right here in Australia.
“The entire vehicle is being developed here, including the unique proprietary software and our incredible powertrain system design.
“This vehicle is a game changer for the Australian automotive manufacturing industry, an industry that has a bright future thanks to Tomcar.”
We will keep you updated on pricing, production and availability details of the Tomcar LV1 in coming months. More info is also available on the Tomcar Australia website.
