The special Mach-E, built off a Mach-E GT body-in-white in a design collaboration with RTR Vehicles, "is aimed at bridging the gap between what an electric vehicle can do and what customers tend to believe it can do". If we were to guess, Ford will probably use it as a promotional tool to drum up interest in the electric SUV by handing it over to a host of its drivers for various stunts and public appearances.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 looks great in photos, but now it's time to see the high-powered EV on the move.
Building on its electrified Mach-E lineup, Ford (F) has introduced the Mustang Mach-E 1400 that delivers 1,400 peak horsepower for some serious track driving. Despite having the same power output, the rear-wheel-drive Cobra Jet and the Mach-E don't share much ofthe same engineering, said Rushbrook.
The team utilized numerous same tools Ford uses for its race cars and production programs in the car's development.
The UAE has successfully launched the Arab world's first Mars mission
There are now eight active missions exploring Mars; some orbit the planet and some have landed on its surface. The world's tallest building shone brightly with the mission badge ahead of the 1.58am UAE time launch.
The base Mustang Mach-E will rely on a single electric motor on the rear axle, the mid-price package adding a second, smaller motor up front. Of course, the 56.8-kilowatt-hour battery-powered one-off needs some spanner work to achieve its full potential. "Buildingupon Vaughn's original idea of what he'd like to do for an all electric drift vehicle and turning it into this extreme all-around athlete to do road courses and drag racing and everything else together".
Ford says the chassis and powertrain are set up to allow the team to "investigate different layouts and their effects on energy consumption and performance", including rear-wheel drive, front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. In the 58.8-kwh pack, Ford is using nickel manganese cobalt pouch cells.
Converting traditional performance auto fans to electric power isn't an easy task, but Ford obviously hopes that the 1400 will be extreme enough to do the trick. Vaughn hasn't clocked it yet, but said it accelerates like a magnetic roller coaster.
Vaughn told Fox News Autos that it uses axial flux motors instead of the permanent magnet synchronous type the street vehicle has, with three up front and four in the back.
Ford plans to debut the Mach-E 1400 at an upcoming NASCAR race, but hasn't yet announced which one that will be.
