Ford Performance E cars

Ford Mustang Mach E 1400

Developed in collaboration with RTR and built off a Mustang Mach-E GT body-in-white, the prototype targets 1,400 peak horsepower. 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, all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive. Drift and track setups have completely different front end configurations like control arms and steering changes to allow for extreme steering angles in drifting. Power delivery can be split evenly between front and rear, or completely to one or the other. Downforce is targeted at more than 2,300 lb. at 160 mph.

The 56.8-kilowatt-hour battery (installed) is made up of nickel manganese cobalt pouch cells for ultra-high performance and high discharge rate. The battery system is designed to be cooled during charging using a di-electric coolant, decreasing the time needed between runs.

Ford Fiesta ERX

Based on a Fiesta ST chassis and packing a giant 450-kWh battery pack liquid-cooled by dry ice, three electric motors – one in the front, two in the rear – making a total of 612 horsepower!! It can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds and has a top speed of around 150 mph. The car is built by STARD, an Austrian motorsports engineering firm. Ken block actually won the event with this car
