Ford Mustang Lithium EV

All electric, all muscle!? How about 900 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque right now! Phi-Power dual-core electric motor with dual power inverters. Webasto supplied the 800-v battery system that produces a megawatt of electrical power. So retro; still uses a 6-speed manual transmission, Torsen differential, performance half shafts and sending it to the rear wheels. https://www.motor1.com/news/380563/f...m-manual-sema/

Megawatt gives you 1340 hp, but only while you can cool it, which is way before the batteries empty. Bet you can only run that for a 1/2 mile because lots of that megawatt will be heat. John Metric over on DIYelectric was doing that for 9 seconds.

If it gets people thinking about motors instead of engines I'll take that as progress.
There's a rumor about an all-electric NASCAR.Anyone heard anything?

Interesting that we've somehow adopted a distinction between motor and engine when they are synonymous. It makes sense considering the usefulness of distinguishing between 2 very different technologies.

You'll still hear people say they "blew the motor", or we refer to trains as "engines".

Then you've got Toyota referring to it as a motor/generator unit, since it acts as both.

With my first car (2000 - 2004) I talked to several shops because someone suggested that I had a bad motor mount, but since motors are generally electric and engines are usually internal combustion, I called them engine mounts, and every single person asked "You mean motor mounts?

Yeah, weird how we do that. The words are interchangable, but I'd be all for defining them to mean different things since there is much utility in distinguishing them. We'd need a new word for engine though, because a universal "power plant" word is useful. When you say mitochondria is the engine of body cells, it gives you an idea of what it does.
