Ford Performance Goes All-Electric With Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 Dragster Prototype
The battery-powered Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype is purpose-built and projected to deliver over 1,400 horsepower and over 1,100 ft.-lbs. of instant torque to demonstrate the capabilities of an electric powertrain in one of the most demanding race environments, and also to honor the original Cobra Jet that first dominated drag strips in the late 1960s and still is a major force in sportsman drag racing today. “Ford has always used motorsport to demonstrate innovation,” said Dave Pericak, Global Director, Ford Icons. “Electric powertrains give us a completely new kind of performance and the all-electric Cobra Jet 1400 is one example of pushing new technology to the absolute limit. We’re excited to showcase what’s possible in an exciting year when we also have the all-electric Mustang Mach-E joining the Mustang family.” The Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 will makes its public debut at a drag racing event later this year.
