Dubuc Motors, headquartered in Newark, Deleware, said it will be the first electric vehicle company to launch its electric supercar, the Tomahawk, through an equity crowdfunding platform, StartEngine. Dubuc Motors is hoping to produce a 2+2 all-electric supercar.

“Nearly 15 years ago, we decided to combine our automotive passion with a stubborn belief that a cleaner and more viable way of producing cars was possible. Our commitment and dedication along with exhaustive R&D and numerous prototypes has led us here today,” said Mike Kakogiannakis, co-founder of Dubuc Motors. “The Tomahawk embodies ingenuity and furthermore is a great vehicle to drive and promote our engagement towards sustainable development.”
