After the launch of the electric hypercar based on the Fisker Karma, Drako has revealed its electric super SUV to challenge the likes of the Lamborghini Urus, Ferrari Purosnague, and Aston Martin DBX.
Driven by two Silicon Valley geniuses, Drako Motors debuted its first hypercar back in 2020. It had an incredible 6,491 lb-ft of torque with an AWD system, which helped it accelerate from 0-60 in just 1.9 seconds.

Now, with the new Dragon SUV, Drako showcased a quad-motor setup producing a total of 2000 horsepower. Drako claims that it will be able to do 0-60 in under 1.9 seconds and the quarter mile in 9.0 seconds.
They mentioned that the battery pack will be able to provide a 420-mile WLTP range and will be able to charge from a 500-kilowatt charger. This translates to a 0–80% charging time of just 10 minutes.
The Dragon SUV weighs around 4969 pounds, and Drako says that it has a 50/50 weight distribution. On the front axle, a set of 10-piston brake calipers will help you slow down the brakes, while the rear axle gets 6-piston brake calipers. The cherry on top is that these brakes come with carbon ceramic brake discs from the factory.

The suspension setup of the Drako Dragon can be adjusted in a range of 6 inches, which means that the electric SUV can sit at a height of 12.4 inches above the ground or as low as 6.4 inches.
Talking about the design of the Drako Dragon, it comes with gull-wing doors but unlike the Tesla Model X, it has only a pair of doors in total. And with the omission of a B pillar, it definitely provides old SLS vibes to the customer.
It sits on a carbon fiber frame, and the body panels have been made out of sustainable fibers, which has helped reduce about 70% of plastic usage in the car.
According to some people, the Dragon seems like a road-going and more sophisticated version of an Extreme E racer, and that makes quite a lot of sense if you look at the design.
Inside, you’ll get a trapezoidal steering wheel and a large 17.1-inch touchscreen display welcoming you to the Dragon. The seats are made out of leather and carbon fiber as well, and there are displays at the back of each front seat.
Designed by an ex-Pininfarina lead director, Lowie Vermeersch, the Dragon SUV uses a minimalistic approach inside, while the exterior feels like a true work of seamless art.
Drako has opened reservations for the Dragon SUV, priced at $290,000. Deliveries will begin in 2026, and Drako plans to produce 5000 units of the Dragon SUV every year.
The Dragon electric SUVs will be built in the US and with that, the company will also focus on bringing a new $500,000-$600,000 electric supercar to take on the likes of the Lamborghini Aventador and Ferrari 812 Superfast in the very near future.
