In the racing community, it seems like there’s a pretty big push back against electric vehicles. Naturally, a big part of the passion in the car community is being able to really connect with our machines. A component of this connection is the vibe that we get from the sound and the feeling of driving a car. Some may speculate that this feeling would simply go away when replaced with the calm silence of an electric vehicle.
The folks behind the Ford MustangCobra Jet 1400 would probably argue that if you feel this way, you should at least give electric technology a chance.
In this one, they seem to insist that, when messing around with the available technology, things can actually be rather fun. In fact, it might be even easier to make a car go fast when it comes to tinkering with electric instead of combustion under the hood.
This time, we take the opportunity to peek into exactly how that is so. When the electric Cobra Jet 1400 made its way into the public eye, it was met with a little bit of scrutiny alongside fans who were thoroughly impressed by the display. In any case, the team behind this one was determined to push forward, really dipping their toes into the electric drag racing community in a big way. For a debut with new tech, this is really a strong performer.
Below, we join in on the journey to really make the most of this car. With different motor and battery combinations, the sky seems to be the limit for what a machine like this could be able to accomplish. At the end of the day, with this being the first real venture into the world of electric vehicle racing, we have to say that 1400 hp to the wheels is certainly a great place to start.
