Is the world ready? Here’s what we know so far…
- Ford has developed a racing version of its electric Mustang Mach-E crossover capable of 1,400 horsepower.
- The automaker plans to use the prototype vehicle as a proof of concept for the performance of all-electric vehicles.
- Ford is investing more than $11.5 billion in electric vehicles worldwide including the Mustang Mach-E, through 2022.
It’s a vehicle that should help generate continued interest in both the upcoming production version of the Mach-E, which is slated to be available later this year, and the $11.5 billion Ford said it’s investing in electric vehicles worldwide.
The car is a 10,000-hour collaboration of Ford Performance and RTR Vehicles, which builds upgrade packages for Ford models, such as the Mustang, F-150 and Ranger. The Mach-E 1400, which Ford called a one-off, was built off a Mustang Mach-E GT body in white at RTR’s facility near Charlotte, N.C.
