One boring afternoon the guys from Atieva were just sitting doing nothing and then out of nowhere one genius idea was brought to the table! One of the guys said: “Let’s race our Edna against a Tesla and a Ferrari!”
FYI “Edna” is an electric van used by Atieva as a powertrain because of the space that allows to test out components and whatnots…
Edna might look harmless and all but the truth is Edna is a beast. Equipped with two electric motors, two gearboxes, battery capable of producing 87kWh that’s equal to something over 900 horsepower and all the software needed to make everything go as smooth as possible.
Edna is not a production design… Atieva’s plan is in 2018 to release its first commercial vehicle which will be a luxury sedan.
Okey… back to the race.
The drag race is fun and it should be. 900 horsepower van that can catapult from 0-60 in just 3.1 seconds against unspecified Ferrari and a Tesla Model S P90D that can actually go from 0-60 in only 2.8 seconds but not this Tesla on the video.
