Reimagining the American Sports Car

After 12+ years of innovative, eco-friendly research and development, we’re proud to introduce the all-electric Tomahawk by Dubuc Motors.


It’s a luxurious, roomy 4-seater built to be elegant, powerful, intelligent, and most importantly: environmentally friendly.


Self-funded for over 10 years, Dubuc Motors is finally opening the opportunity for a select group of investors who share our vision to reserve a stake in our company and claim their place in history. With the capital raised through this equity crowdfunding campaign (learn more on the offering below), the Dubuc team will produce the final Tomahawk model and unveil it at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2018

Without further ado, meet the Tomahawk by Dubuc Motors.

The Tomahawk seamlessly integrates the world’s finest technology and engineering to deliver a long-range electric vehicle (EV) that’s built upon performance and luxury.

This story of two entrepreneurs begins in 2004. We are Mike Kakogiannakis and Mario Dubuc, two family men driven by a belief that we can produce a more efficient form of transportation without having to sacrifice aesthetics and luxury. We decided to research the market, surround ourselves with some of the best in the industry, and begin a remarkable exploration that merges electric-sourced technology and the automotive space.


Our launch concept was to target a niche market, away from the big automaker’s reach, which made our business plan not only viable but also profitable. A multitude of prototypes were built over the years incorporating never-before-conceived technologies, addressing issues ignored by companies in the car manufacturing industry.


Four years ago we left our comfortable jobs to pursue a mission: to merge the pinnacle technologies of electrical and mechanical engineering in order to provide an unparalleled driving experience. We are creating an all-wheel-drive, all-electric supercar. But we’re not stopping there – we want to redefine transportation.


We think of the Tomahawk as “Tesla's cousin,” offering comparable performance. While Tesla offers a sedan and an SUV, we want to complete their product line with our sports car. When compared to hybrids, the Tomahawk outperforms all of them – in speed, looks, and comfort.


We’ve self-funded for over a decade and, more recently, have welcomed a group of investors who share in our vision and passion.


Here and now is your chance to get in, lead by example, and drive change. Reserve your stake in our company and claim your place in history.

The Dubuc engineers, fabricators and designers spared no expense in creating one of the most revolutionary electric vehicles to date, from the bottom up.

Bonded Chassis Technology

  • The first vehicle in North America formed of bonded aluminum sheets with no welding.

Cab Forward Design

  • By positioning the entire vehicle cabin forward, the interior is "stretched" to provide more interior space

Aluminum Tube & Monocoque Structure

  • An industry-first structural blend to add stiffness and rigidity while maximizing safety and performance

Adjustable Air Suspension Ride Height

  • Creates exceptional ride quality, regardless of load, and adjusts vehicle height for appearance and obstacle clearances

All-Aluminum Front/Rear Sport Double Wishbone Suspension

  • Rigid, safe and lightweight, used to give peak performance and sports car handling.

Flat Undercarriage

  • Reduces downforce and turbulence while driving at high speeds.

Through 12 years of R&D, we’ve engineered innovative changes in the Tomahawk chassis, drive, and power train to make the Tomahawk complete and eady for the EV revolution.


Our introductory model, the Tomahawk, is the first model of many to be commercialized from a universal chassis, which also allows for the production of other electric vehicles targeting niche markets within the industry.


Dubuc Motors is finally opening the opportunity for a select group of investors who share our vision to reserve a stake in our company and claim their place in history.


With the capital raised through this equity crowdfunding campaign (learn more on offering below), the Dubuc team will produce the final Tomahawk model unveil it at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2018.


When you join us on our quest to shake up the transportation industry, you are becoming part of a bigger mission.

The Plan

With the capital raised through this equity crowdfunding campaign, the Dubuc team will produce the final Tomahawk model and unveil it at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2018.

With your help, we will bring our employee count to 60 by employing needed engineers, fabricators and designers. We will complete crash tests, safety certifications, and licensing.


Government grants will complete our budget, allowing us to tool a 200,000 sq ft factory. Sales will be conducted online via our e-commerce site, supported by a marketing and advertising budget, bloggers and social media to attract customers.


We foresee a yearly production of 1500 units, but expect our initial production capacity to be around ten (10) to a maximum of one hundred (100) vehicles in our first year of production (assuming we are successful in raising the full amount in our Regulation A offering). The retail sale price is expected to be $125,000 with a strong focus on primary markets that include the United States and China. We'll be targeting the urban and cosmopolitan coastal city customer seeking a luxurious and exotic vehicle who, based on trends, are typically customers between 25-65 years of age, that are interested in luxury, speed and sustainable energy. Starting a new business at the right time is a crucial key to the success of that venture. Industry experts point to various factors indicating that a business based around the electrification of transport, connectivity and a direct sales model is poised for extensive growth.

As the EV Market continues to expand, there will be several new entries focusing primarily on mass-market, low-cost vehicles that will have to compete with, rather than compliment, established entities such as Tesla. The other end of this market spectrum - one of luxury, performance, and beautiful aesthetics - is completely underserved without the Tomahawk. We are light years ahead of potential competitors in this space as we've already manufactured and produced our showroom concept vehicles and, as industry veterans, the knowledge required to overcome a barrier to entry is already firmly established.


By 2022 the demand for EV’s will exceed 35 million units worldwide and currently more than 58% of automotive consumers consider purchasing an electric vehicle.


Government regulations and incentives are accelerating the growth of the electric vehicle market. Many governments in countries throughout the world are regulating vehicle emissions and fuel economy standards and offering incentives to consumers to purchase more energy-efficient vehicles. In 2009, the United States government enacted a $2.4 billion electric vehicle stimulus package with the goal of putting one million electric drive vehicles on the road by 2015.

We’re that much closer to accepting investments


You may have noticed a bit of a gap in the updates coming from our team, and there’s been a very good reason for that. Our team was aiming our full focus at a momentous occasion. On Monday, November 7th, 2016 we filed under Reg A with the SEC! We are also looking at offering to investors outside of the United States using Regulation S. We should be getting an update from the SEC by mid-December. What this means for you is that very soon, we should be able to accept investments! We’re preparing to launch a major marketing push to bring attention to our incredible electric supercar, and couldn’t be happier to have your support. Feel free to contact our COO and co-founder, Mike Kakogiannakis (mike@dubucmotors.com) with any questions about this exciting process!




XTC committee selects Dubuc Motors for their top 25


Dubuc Motors was one of thousands of companies that submitted to the Extreme Tech challenge (XTC), and we have just been selected as one of the top 25! The XTC pits top innovators against each other in a battle of bleeding edge technology. The top ten will get the chance to present their products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, one of the largest global showcases for tech, and the three finalists will pitch to none other than Richard Branson himself, on his own private Necker island!

Check out the full press release; the XTC is on record calling the Dubuc Motors Tomahawk “a strong contender in XTC 2017.”

Be sure to also check out Innovation podcast host Kym McNichols and XTC co-founder Bill Tai discussing Dubuc and the Tomahawk’s top 25 placement.




Watch our EV tear through gorgeous back roads


The Tomahawk is a 2+2 supercar designed as much for raw power and handling as it is for luxurious cruising. We took the prototype out for a drive through the idyllic countryside, and recorded it so that you can all get a taste of what this magnificent vehicle will be like to drive.




Pierre Lavertu was impressed by the Tomahawk’s roomy interior.


Pierre Lavertu is an offensive lineman for the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders. At 6’4” tall and over 300 pounds, he often has trouble squeezing into the tight, cramped cockpits of most sports cars. But the Dubuc Tomahawk is not most sports cars; thanks to a clever cab-forward design and other brilliant feats of engineering, the Tomahawk has enough interior space for Pierre to fit comfortable with room to spare.
