Drako GTE Electric Will Develop 1,200 Horsepower

The Drako GTE promises exceptional performance starting this summer.

There’s a new electric car on the way, and it will be far from slow. Called the Drako GTE, it has the kind of specs you usually expect to see from some obscure Chinese EV.

Except Drako Motors is based in Silicon Valley, not too far from where Tesla changed the automotive world. Last week, Drako unveiled the first images of its upcoming high-performance electric vehicle which will pack 1,200 horsepower and a claimed 6,490 pound-feet of torque.

Capable of reaching 206 mph, the Drako GTE appears to be a direct competitor for the upcoming Tesla Roadster although we don’t have enough info on the GTE to explore how it will stack up further.

The Roadster packs a 200-kWh battery and can reach 100 km/h in 1.9 seconds. We figure that with almost 7,000 pound-feet of torque, the Drako GTE will match up well with Tesla’s flagship.

The Drako GTE will officially debut next August.
