California-based startup Drako has taken the wraps off its second production model, a fully electric hyper-SUV that is called the Dragon. The follow-up to the Fisker Karma-based Drako GTE is based on a carbon-fiber monocoque, with a quad motor powertrain producing a monstrous 2,000 hp.

The Drako Dragon measures 199 inches (mm) long, 81 inches (mm) wide, and 63 inches (mm) tall, with a curb weight of 4,969 pounds (2,254 kg). This makes it slightly longer, wider, and shorter than the Tesla Model X while weighing 562 pounds (255 kg) less than the heaviest P100D.

Drako’s first SUV was designed by Lowie Vermeersch and his GranStudio team in Italy, featuring two large gullwing doors, a coupe-style roofline, 23-inch alloy wheels, and aggressive aero including a hole in the grille that leads out to the bonnet and flying buttresses.

Inside the five-seater cabin, there is a massive 17.1-inch touchscreen for the infotainment, a smaller digital instrument cluster, two screens for the mirror-replacing cameras, and two equally large tablets on the seatbacks for the rear passengers.
