Electric delivery can slays supercars

The world's fastest delivery van

Meet Edna, the world's fastest delivery van.

It's the work of a company called Atieva, a US technology company that is developing electric powertrain and battery technology with the aim of producing its own car.

Its test mule is a nondescript Mercedes Vito stuffed with two electric motors and a battery capable of storing 87kWh of energy and outputting over 670kW.

The figures are no idle boast, with Edna now having dispatched 0-97km/h (0-60mph) in just 2.94sec and completing the quarter mile in 11.3sec at 188km/h.

Perfect for the tradie in a big hurry.
