Drako Motors Showed a 2,000 Horsepower Concept Electric SUV Called Dragon

Drako Motors unveiled an electric SUV concept that should make it to production later in the year.

  • Drako Motors had previously teased the GTE, which was a reworked Karma Revero

  • This concept SUV features gullwing doors

  • A production version could arrive later in the year

Drako Motors revealed images of a new vehicle that could enter production later this year as a competitor to the Lamborghini Urus and the Bentley Bentayga.

This electric SUV will be powered by a 2,000-horsepower drivetrain composed of four motors, which will allow it to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 1.9 seconds, exactly the same time as the Tesla Model S Plaid. The top speed is targeted at an equally impressive 200 mph (321 km/h).

This level of performance will place it at the top of the electric vehicle market and comfortably ahead of its gasoline-powered competitors from high-end brands. In order to keep this power under control, the Drako Dragon will be equipped with an adjustable three-stage suspension system.

The concept features a number of elements that might not make it to production, such as the gullwing doors that seem to occupy the majority of the side profile of the vehicle.

Having said that, the Tesla Model X is equipped with rear doors that operate on a similar principle, so the Drako Dragon could keep this distinctive element after all.

The images don’t show much of the SUV, but some features that can be seen are the “floating” C-pillars that create a passage to direct the air between themselves and the body of the vehicle.

The headlamps and the taillamps adopt diagonal LED strips as their identifying characteristics and the front bumper features deep cut-outs at each end which are possibly air intakes for cooling the brakes.

The small company says this model will be priced competitively with its intended competitors from Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Bentley, which gives an idea of the price tag that will be affixed to this electric SUV when it launches later in the year. Reservations for the Drako Dragon will reportedly open soon but the automaker hasn’t said when the first deliveries are to be expected.
