Alkane Truck Company Fills Humvee Market Void: Neither Snows, Deserts, Hills nor Rivers Can Slow the Alkane Dominator
15th June, 2016
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - June 13, 2016 - Introduced by Alkane Truck Company (the South Carolina-based truck manufacturer), the Dominator™ will be ready for U.S. highways in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2017. The humvee vehicle gliders will be imported from Alkanes partner, Agrale of Brazil, and integrated with U.S. manufactured parts and components that are EPA/CARB Certified and DOT compliant. Agrale, founded in 1962, provides vehicles to the United Nations, as well as being the sole provider of vehicles for the Brazilian military. Having entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Agrale, Alkane will sell and service the Dominators™ through its network of existing and future truck/automotive dealer locations.
By adhering to its vision of promoting alternative fuels, the humvee Dominator™ will be primarily offered as a liquid propane-powered vehicle. However, a gasoline-powered version is also available. “We believe that propane is an important clean-burning option to Americas fuel needs,” explained Bob Smith, CEO of Alkane Truck Company. “It is abundant and domestically produced and, as an added bonus, it is much cheaper than both gasoline and diesel.”
Lets get back to what this workhorse humvee can do. Starting with navigating through water, it can cross a lake or river up to 40 inches deep. Because of the PSI 6.0 Liter V8/345 horsepower engine and snorkel exhaust, it easily overcomes the challenges presented by deep water. How about steep incline? No problem. The tall road clearance of the front fenders and powerful 373 ft. lbs. of torque allows the Dominator™ to climb a 60° slope with ease. In addition, it has an attack angle of 57° and hugs a side slope of 30°.
This all-purpose humvee beast is even going to be offered as an armor-plated version for civilian, police and military applications. Alkanes contracted engineering group is developing ways to armor the vehicles, providing National Institute of Justice (NIJ) protection levels from B1 through B7.
Whether forging through water, thick brush, desert sand or rocky roads, the impenetrable tough skin of the Dominator™ protects the vehicle from all the harsh elements. Why? Because it is completely coated inside and out with Line-X Polyurea Protective Coating that virtually renders the metal parts impervious to scratches, nicks, abrasions, salt corrosion, and even dents.
Pricing and Tax Incentives
MSRP for the Dominators™ will be $89,900.00. Since the Alkane Dominators Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) is 12,800 lbs., the propane version is eligible for tax incentives or credits. In some states, these credits are quite significant. Check with your states incentive program to learn about potential tax savings.
Invest Through CrowdFunding
Alkane Truck Company has entered the “Test the Waters” phase of its crowdfunding campaign with Start Engine and is raising capital to purchase parts and inventory to expedite delivery of the vehicles to its dealer locations.
Alkane is taking advanced reservations for the Dominator™ at reservations.alkanedominator.com and invites anyone interested to make a deposit in the amount of $500.00 to $5,000.00.
