Dartz Electric Roadster Can Take a Bullet (or Race Away From Danger at 125MPH)

Know what happens when an armored vehicle company decides to go green? You get the Jo-Mojo, a lightly armored open-top electric low-rider with a top speed of 125MPH and a bulletproof exterior. Yep, this thing steers clear of gasoline, has a respectable amount of get-up-and-go, and can take a bullet, should the need arise. Or at least that's the idea.

Dartz is collaborating with the Gray Design studio once again with the intention of converting its gas-powered Mojo roadster into an electric car with style and substance.


According to Gizmag, the Jo-Mojo will sport an 80 horsepower electric motor with 90 lb-ft of torque. It will go from 0-60MPH in 9.5 seconds, and as mentioned, hit a top speed of 125MPH. The battery is still being developed, so it's unclear how far this thing will go on a single charge, though buyers will have the option of adding extra battery power on an as-needed basis, just in case your getaway plans go awry.


Dartz is hoping to have a prototype available before the third quarter of 2012. As for price, it's more reasonable than you might think: a little over $40,000. And did we mention it's bulletproof?

not a bad price for a bullet proof car. You can rest easy that you wont get hit from a stray bullet while in your car.

i feel like going 0-60 in 3 seconds would offer more bullet dodging ability. that 9.5 seconds your gonna need the bullet proofing.

Lmao well at least you'll only get shot in the head :(

Does look really pretty tho, got to give them that. I'd rather have a non-bulletproof version thats hopefully lighter with longer battery life.

Most likly the windows are bullet proof as well so i guess ur safe unless someone from above shoots you... :P

It looks amazing, except for the wheels. I would rather have them tucked away.

Dallas Book Repository, November 22, 1963. Seems like "from above" was pretty effective.

0-60 in 9.5 seconds is sloooooowwwww. My Mustangs gets there in about 5 seconds or less.

Also, it's not gonna be very bullet proof with the top down lol

It looks like it should have a Cadillac logo slapped on the front of it. Silly design.

Apparently, a niche market exists for such a car. If the company can make some profit, then more power to them.

Not bad... However; I would take 0-60 in 3.5 seconds rather then 9.5 seconds... The faster the better right? For getaways I mean...
