Edna, the 900-HP electric van that took a Tesla Model S and Ferrari California T to the woodshed on an ⅛-mile strip of asphalt last month, has returned with a vengeance.

This time, Atieva’s tuned-up van victimized a Dodge Viper and a BMW i8 over a quarter mile.

After pulling off a shocking 0-60 time of 3.08 seconds the first time around, Edna obliterated that mark by turning in a 0-60 of 2.94 seconds. With a top speed of 114 mph, the e-van completed the entire quarter-mile race in just 11.3 seconds.

Should you and your hooptie want the privilege of eating Edna's dust, the company is accepting applications for her next three track competitors.
