Ed 101

Carmageddon: Reincarnation

Tashita Concept for C:R.
The Tashita in C:R.

The Tashita will make a return in Carmageddon: Reincarnation. It was added in Update 3 on 18th June 2014 in greybox form. It also did not feature the front blade weapon due to issues with ground clearance. It was finished in Update 4 with a front blade that had been raised to the mid section of the front end of the car. This was to avoid the ground clearance issue and also potentially give better pedestrian dismemberment in future updates.


The Tashita in the intro for Carmageddon II
Ed 101's original vehicle
  • A robot with psychotic tendencies could be said to draw inspiration from the Terminator franchise, especially when one considers that Arnie's model number was T-101. A more noticeable comparison namewise would be with the ED-209 droid from action film RoboCop.
  • Driver's Ed (short for Driver's Education) is the name for driving lessons in the US, and 101 is a beginning-level or basic course number taught at colleges and universities.
  • A Tashita with a different paintjob (and driven by Batmad) features in the Carmageddon II intro FMV.
  • Ed 101 is not to be confused with De-d 209 from the PlayStation version.
  • Tashita Coupe is based primarily upon the racing spec Toyota Supra. It also contains elements of the Mazda RX-7 and Peugeot 205 Turbo 16. Both Toyota and Mazda are Japanese companies, which would explain the Japanese flag image on the bonnet.
  • Tashita 2 is a 1991 Nissan Skyline GT-R R32, which in its day was one of the most successful racing cars of its class.
  • The Tashita appeared in the intro of the Playstation version, but with an different paintjob.
  • The Official Carmageddon web site showed a very different vehicle for Ed 101 to drive in Carmageddon, which didn't make it into the final release: A Wipeout-style hover car, who's textures are hidden in the final release, inside Devil's Canyon Mining Town's files.
  • Ed bears a resemblence to Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie.
