A company planning to build high-tech police cars in a vacant eastern Indiana auto parts factory says it has a second vehicle that it plans to produce in Indiana.

Carbon Motors Corp. on Monday announced it will begin producing a multi-mission vehicle called the TX7 at a vacant former Visteon plant in Connersville before it begins building its E7 police car.

Carbon says that the TX7 can replace several types of vehicles currently in use by law enforcement agencies. The TX7 is built on the chasis of an already-existing truck (the company has not said which one) and employs a V8 engine that powers all four wheels. The truck can be configured to fit up to 10 people and will include numerous technological features, including weapons of mass destruction detectors, infrared cameras and 360-degree surveillance cameras.
