Tesla has big competition with the Drako’s GTE all-electric supercar
Drako Motors has unveiled its first production model, the Drako GTE.
According to the company, the four-passenger sedan has been almost a decade in design, engineering and ride development. It packs an all-electric quad motor under the hood, that puts out 1,200-horsepower. It can hit a top speed of 330kph.
The motor’s exterior belies its aerodynamics, with a contoured body and swept grille. The powertrain control system, which Drako calls ‘Quattro Manettino’, has been tuned to let the driver control almost everything, right down to torque vectoring and power distribution. Drivers can further customize their ride, by choosing one of six road surface conditions.
The supercar has been designed with track performance in mind, but Drako Motors has said the car is also suitable for family travelling, capable of fitting four people and luggage for each.
The Drako GTE will go up against Tesla’s upcoming new Roadster. While Drako has yet to provide 0-100kph acceleration specs, we know that Tesla’s supercar will hit 100kph in just 1.9 seconds. It will also boast an impressive range of 1,000km on a single charge.
Only 25 Drako GTE models will be produced worldwide, with a starting price of US$1.25-million. The car is destined to hit roads in 2020.
