Ford engineered their all-electric Mustang Cobra Jet to shatter performance records without using a drop of fuel, and it did just that recently by completing the quarter-mile in 8.27 seconds at 168 miles per hour, while reaching 1,502 peak wheel horsepower. In other words, it’s the combined output of more than three 2021 Mustang GT V8 engines. The automaker partnered with Cascadia Motion to power the Cobra Jet 1400, equipping it with four PN-250-DZR inverters coupled to a pair of DS-250-115s, for a total of four motors, all spinning at up to 10,000 revolutions per minute. These motor-inverter packages run at 800 volts and up to 700 amps, with a maximum output of 350kW per motor. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
To manage all that power, EM-EV and Ford Performance jointly collaborated to develop an advanced data and control system that features a control algorithm exclusive to the Cobra Jet 1400. This massive amount of power also required a different approach with chassis tuning strategies, which MLe, Ford’s build and integration collaborator for the project, took care of. You can see this beast in action at the NHRA U.S. Nationals on both FS1 and FOX TV, as well as nhra.tv livestream, this weekend.

It’s been a great but challenging project for all of us at Ford Performance. The opportunities to learn with the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, as well as the Mustang Mach-E 1400 we recently introduced, gives us great insight into what may be possible in high-performance all-electric vehicles for Ford going forward. We are very interested in continuing to work with NHRA to determine how electrification can be part of the sport and to show off the Cobra Jet 1400 at max power in due course as regulations develop,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports.
