Comb through Tesla’s family tree and you might eventually identify a long-lost cousin.

It’s green both inside and out, does 0-60 in three seconds and goes by Tomahawk.

Produced by Dubuc Motors, the Tomahawk (which is also available in white) is an all-electric sports car with a chassis made of bonded aluminum sheets that are both lightweight and rigid. With a top speed of 160 MPH and range of 370 miles, the superfast four-seater sports a panoramic roof, scissor doors, a flat undercarriage to reduce turbulence, and adjustable air suspension that can alter the vehicle’s height for appearance or clearing obstacles.

Equipped with an onboard computer that’s operated using a touchscreen control panel, the all-wheel-drive car has a 360-degree cameras and also a wifi hotspot for software updates.

“While Tesla offers  a sedan and an SUV, we want to complete their product line with our sports car,” according to Dubuc. “When compared to hybrids, the Tomahawk outperforms all of them — in speed, looks, and comfort.”

Dubuc is planning to start production this year and has already started taking reservations.

Now if we could only find Tesla’s weird uncle … Oh, here he  is.
