Ford will bring a 2000 hp Ford Pro Electric SuperVan electric van to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It continues the line of “Supervans” launched by the American brand in 1971 and uses a number of components from production cars. For example, the floor panels of the electric car came from E-Transit Custom, and the media system came from Mustang Mach-E.

The most powerful and fastest van gets a “hundred” in less than two seconds.

Ford Pro Electric SuperVan has little in common with production vans, although it uses a number of components from E-Transit Custom. The spatial frame of the machine is made of steel, the external panels are composite. In the bowels of the chassis are four electric motors with a combined output of 2000 horsepower. They are powered by a 50-kilowatt-hour liquid-cooled battery, which takes 45 minutes to fully charge. An electric car accelerates to a hundred in less than two seconds.

The power plant has five modes of operation. The Road profile is designed for rare leisurely rides, and the Track is set to balance power and grip when using racing slicks. There is also Drag (maximum acceleration on drag strips), Drift (for side slides), and Rally (in combination with rally tires provide optimal settings for asphalt and gravel tracks).

The system exchanges data with a remote server in real-time, so engineers can adjust the parameters of the machine literally on the fly.

The electric SuperVan is equipped with FIA homologated racing seats and a safety frame, as well as a SYNC media system from Ford Mustang Mach-E.

There is a tracking control, a long-range control system, a pitlane speed limiter, and a three-level recovery system.

In addition, a function with the telling name Tire Cleaning Mode is sewn into the onboard system of the van. When it is activated, one of the axes for spectacular burnouts is blocked.

The car was developed jointly by Ford Performance, the German office of Ford Design, and the Austrian firm STARD. This is the fourth SuperVan in the history of Ford, but the first with an electric drive. The original SuperVan appeared in 1971 and was equipped with an engine from Lehman’s Ford GT40, and it stood at the back within the base. The SuperVan 2 van got a 590-horsepower Cosworth V8 from the Ford C100 sports prototype, and the SuperVan 3 — Cosworth HB with 650 horsepower from the Formula 1 car.
