The Mustang Mach-E 1400 is a one-of-kind prototype built to challenge perceptions of what an all-electric car is capable of with performance tuning.
In a collaboration between Ford and RTR vehicles, the car took 10,000 hours to develop and started life as a stock Mustang Mach-E GT. It was rebuilt with additional motors, high performance battery and body modifications, targeting 1,400 peak horsepower and achieving 2,300lbs of downforce at 160 mph.
“Now is the perfect time to leverage electric technology, learn from it, and apply it to our lineup,” “Mustang Mach-E is going to be fun to drive, just like every other Mustang before it, but Mustang Mach-E 1400 is completely insane, thanks to the efforts of Ford Performance and RTR.”
Ron Heiser, chief program engineer, Mustang Mach-E.
- Mustang Mach-E 1400 has seven motors – five more than even Mustang Mach-E GT. Three are attached to the front differential and four are attached to the rear in pancake style, with a single driveshaft connecting them to the differentials.
- The 56.8-kilowatt-hour battery 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.
- An electronic brake booster is integrated to allow series regenerative braking combined with ABS and stability control to optimize the braking system. Mustang Mach-E 1400 features Brembo™ brakes, like the Mustang GT4 race car, and a hydraulic handbrake system designed for drifting that integrates with the powertrain controls to enable the ability to shut off power to the rear motors.
