Electric cars are our future because they become more powerful and faster.
Ford Motor Co.’s performance presented a new Ford Mustang SUV Mach-E 1400 prototype with a 1,400-horsepower, electric track-monster with seven electric motors, seating for four adventure seekers, and a massive rear wing.
The main purpose of this prototype is to show that battery-powered vehicles can run with the fastest car moving on gas.
The horsepower on this new Ford Mustang SUV is equal with the most powerful hypercars made, the 16-cylinder Bugatti Chiron, and million-dollar-plus hybrid Koenigsegg Regera which both turn with 1,479 horsepower and is far above its most powerful competitor, Dodge Demon with 840-horsepower. Mach-E 1400’s is a one-off prototype with no plans for production.
This New Ford Mustang SUV is developed in cooperation with hot rod-shop RTR Vehicles, and Mach-E 1400 is right behind of the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400. It is Ford’s first all-electric car with 1,400-horsepower which was presented at the beginning of this year.
While the Cobra Jet is aimed only on straight-line speed, the Mach-E 1400 can compete in multiple areas as a road race, drifting competitions, or drag strip.
In one of his interviews chief on Ford Performance Mark Rushbrook said: “The main purpose of this product is to show what the Mustang Mach E is capable of”.
Оf course Ford has made a supercar before and that is limited-edition Ford GT who in 2016 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in race trim. But this New Ford Mustang SUV is a different project.
The Ford GT was a technical challenge to create a car that can win in international race series, and when it comes to creating Mach-E 1400, here are no rules. We had complete freedom to do literally whatever we wanted – said Mark.
The result of all this is the creation of a real beast that doubles his power over the Ford GT who has 647-horsepower and price $ 500,000.
These seven powerful electric motors built into this car give it large power and if are not set some limitations this new Ford Mustang SUV Mach-E 1400 has much big power than the Ford GT – race car that blinded Le Mans- also stated Mark Rushbrook.
The Mach-E 1400 prototype was created on the $61,600 Mach-E GT’s performance trim, while the standard Mach E there will be a price of $44,995 and should appear in showrooms this fall.
New Ford Mustang SUV has all-wheel-drive and is equipped with three electric motors up front, and four in the rear. Looming on the rear deck is located huge rear wing, which has a very important role in generating 2,300-pounds of downforce at 160 mph.
With the creation of this Mach-E 1400 fantastic car, Ford shows that it is seriously involved in the creation of electric cars. We invest $11 billion in electric vehicles and our main goal is to make them fun to drive for people to love it – said, Mark.
Аlthough this vehicle is not intended for any race series, and unlike most race cars which are hollowed out save for a driver’s seat, this New Ford Mustang SUV is coming with four racing seats and thus allows three passengers to enjoy the speed offered by this car.
This amazing car has a battery from 56.8 kWh which does not differ much differently from the performance of other electric cars such as Tesla Model Y or Mach-E GT. But it is much weaker than the 100 kWh battery which has the powerful Tesla car – Model S Performance.
This can be explained by the fact that Ford was not very focused on the range but paid more attention to performance and therefore this Ford Mustang SUV gets seven electric motors, with a note that he has four engines more than Cobra Jet 1400 dragster.
In his interview, Mark Rushbrook said: this new Ford Mustang SUV can run about an hour and it takes the same amount of time to charge the batteries. Our main goal is for this to be a demonstration car, to show what electric cars can do make.
When making this car Ford collaborated with RTR which has a very high reputation in the production of top-dog drift racing cars.
The contestant, as well as the founder of RTR Vaughn Gittin Jr. about this electric car, said: When you sit behind the wheel of this car you get a complete idea of what power it has. You can get this experience only with this extremely powerful electric car.
This new Ford Mustang SUV Mach-E 1400 will debut on a NASCAR race later this year, and it all fits in well because the NASCAR series will be going hybrid-electric in a few years.
The input of electric vehicles in racing today is a big trend and Ford has intended to enter this racing hell and that with this Mach-E 1400 model.
But at this time this prototype can not compete in any racing series. We are fully prepared and committed to electric racing. Аt this point the only complete electric race is Formula E but still, there are many options to come in the near future said Mark Rushbrook at the end of his interview.
