Mustang Super Cobra Jet 1800 Shatters its Own EV World Record

Smashes previous NHRA record for a full-bodied EV-Drag car with an impressive 7.759 at 180.14mph



Redefining racing possibilities with electric powertrains is a key goal for #Ford Performance Electric Vehicle Demonstrators. The #CobraJet EV demonstrator has made history once again by breaking the world record for the fastest quarter-mile pass with a full-bodied EV drag car completing it in an astonishing time of 7.759 seconds at a speed of 180.14 miles per hour during the National Hot Rod Association Winter Nationals. This extraordinary achievement follows the Cobra Jet EV Demonstrator's initial record of 8.128 seconds at 171.97 miles per hour, which was set back in 2021.



The all-electric Super Cobra Jet 1800 #Mustang dominating the #NHRA strip in less than eight seconds serves as a testament to the immense potential of electric vehicles in the world of motorsport. Ford is not merely joining the electric revolution; they are at the forefront, showcasing their cutting-edge electric vehicle technology in competitive racing. Each experience on the track brings them closer to improving the performance of their EVs, particularly in the advancement of Ford's hybrid technology.



The development of the Super Cobra Jet 1800 involved substantial enhancements compared to its predecessor, the 1400-horsepower model. Notable upgrades included a specially designed control strategy and an advanced lightweight battery system, which resulted from the collaboration between Ford Performance and MLe Racecars. This remarkable vehicle is equipped with a high-performance setup comprising four PN250DZR inverters and two double-stacked DS-250-115 motor pairings, all meticulously optimized to deliver unparalleled launches and exceptional performance.



The transformation went beyond hardware upgrades. The dedication to innovation also involved a complete redesign of the battery system, resulting in a remarkable 30 percent increase in power. This progress was not just about breaking records; it was about reshaping the potential of electric power in motorsports.
