The all-electric Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 prototype has beaten expectations through an intensive testing and development process, blazing through a quarter-mile in 8.27 seconds at 168 miles per hour and reaching 1,502 peak wheel horsepower at a private test.
The heart of GM’s strategy is a modular propulsion system and a highly flexible, third-generation global EV platform powered by proprietary Ultium batteries.
In North America, GM EVs will be powered by rectangular, pouch-style battery packs that are simple, lightweight and space-efficient.
GM’s ability to stack batteries vertically is unique in the industry and it allows for a flat cabin floor and more interior room than comparable EVs that use cylindrical battery packs.
The pack also allows engineers to deliver vehicles with an optimized weight distribution and a lower center of gravity to improve ride and handling.
