Ford Eluminator horsepower and price revealed on product page
After a hesitant announcement that Ford would start selling electric box motors, we now have some basic specs and even prices for its first available motor, the Eluminator. So let's get straight to the point, the engine is producing 281 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque.
According to the product page (hat tip for auto parts knowledge and pit crew member Bozi Tataravic) it's the same type of engine you find in a Mustang Mach-E GT. Presumably it's the rear engine, as the numbers match the long-range rear-wheel drive Mustang Mach-E. Ford listed a few other specs as well. The engine weighs 205 pounds, which is a little less than half the weight of a 5.0-liter Coyote V8.
The price for the motor is $ 3,900. For comparison, a crate coyote starts at $ 9,500 and a Godzilla crate engine starts at $ 7,000. But here's the catch: you don't get much with the engine. You get the motor, low and high voltage wiring harnesses, and a vent pipe. You will not receive a controller, charger or battery. We anticipate that Ford will sell some type of battery pack and other supporting parts to help you put together a roadworthy car. We also anticipate that this will drive costs up quite a bit. Even if you get a lot of these parts from elsewhere, it won't come cheap.
Regardless, it's very exciting that more and more OEMs are starting to offer box parts for the electric powertrain. GM is also presenting its own ready-to-drive electrical conversion kit. We're excited to see what else Ford has to offer for EV conversions, and we could find out more at this year's SEMA show.
