Snap-on Tools Will Help Carbon Motors Develop Service Plan For E7

November 12, 2009  | 

Snap-on Tools will help Carbon Motors develop service strategies for the first-ever purpose-built law enforcement patrol vehicle, the company has announced.

"The Snap-on team was pleased to invite Carbon Motors to our Innovation Works facility in Kenosha (Wisc.) where we discussed the future of homeland security and relevant shifts in automotive technology," said Nick Pinchuk, chairman and chief executive of Snap-on Inc. "Carbon Motors is pursuing an idea that can define new capability for first responders. Our mission at Snap-on is to deliver unique solutions to real people who do critical work. We're happy to lend our expertise in search of a better solution for law enforcement officers and those who support them."

Besides working together on the service strategy for the E7 patrol vehicle, the first car built strictly to be a police car, Snap-on and Carbon Motors are conducting a "Pure Justice Tour" where at each stop, Snap-on and Carbon Motors will host an interactive "Customer Service Summit" meeting. This opportunity allows fleet administrators, shop managers and technicians to help design various aspects of the service model with Carbon Motors and Snap-on.

To date, mroe than 3,400 Carbon Council members in 50 states have helped design the Carbon E7 vehicle. Snap-on and Carbon Motors intend to follow a similar approach in developing the service model.

The clean-diesel vehicle, which is being built in Connorsville, Ind., will be ready in 2012.
