You would think that the Ford SuperVan 4 came about because a bunch of Ford engineers got drunk at a bar one night and one of them asked, “You think our CEO would get mad if we make a 2000 hp transit van?” And the all other engineers replied, “Let’s find out!” However, that’s not what happen.
The SuperVan 4 is the 4th in a line of one-off high-powered vans that Ford has created since 1972. All the previous SuperVans were gas powered. This is the first SuperVan to be electric. It is also the most powerful SuperVan ever made. The four electric motors combine to make 2000 hp. This enables the van to sprint from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 2 seconds.
The Ford Pro Electric SuperVan (official name) has nothing in common with the Ford E-Transit van it’s based on. The chassis is purpose-built and track-ready. The only thing this van will be hauling is ass.
The body features lightweight composite body panels, with super low front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. The radical rear cutaways and dorsal fin flow into the rear wing to generate race car level downforce. The ground clearance is too low for most speed bumps.
To keep weight low and performance high, the SuperVan uses a fairly small 50kWh liquid-cooled battery pack. A race pace, the range is only 35 km (about 22 miles), which is just enough to do one complete lap of the Nurburgring. Ford says the pack can be fully recharged in approximately 45 minutes using a standard electric vehicle fast-charger.
2000 hp, only 35 km range, completely impractical and can’t go over a speed bump. I love it! The Ford Pro Electric SuperVan is right now terrorizing the track at the 2022 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
