That is very compelling. If it's really in the $5k price range that's just a bargain IMO.
That would make this the rear motor of the Mach E, which is apparently from BorgWarner. The drawings and gear ratio spec look like the entire rear drive unit, complete with integral reduction gearing and differential, although that torque and speed would be for the bare motor. Note the capped-off axle outputs on each end; this is a coaxial design - the hollow-shaft motor is on the axle line. It would make no sense to offer this as an engine or engine-and-transmission replacement; it would need a suitable subframe to mount it at the driven axle. If you locked out the differential and fed one output to a separate final drive, the gearing would be wildly wrong (assuming you're not going racing on the salt flats).Wow, $3,900!
Ford Performance Parts is proud to offer the Eluminator!!! This electric motor is from the 2021 Mustang Mach E GT.
Peak power: 210kW (281hp)
Peak torque: 430Nm (317 lb/ft)
Max speed: 13,800rpm
Gear ratio: 9.05:1
Weight: 93kg / 205 lbs
The inverter is mounted right to the drive unit case in rear Mach-E units; it would logically be included with the drive unit, but it is explicitly not included and could not be at the listed US$3,900 price. There isn't even a connector to plug in a cable to an inverter in the stock unit, because prongs from the inverter insert into the motor housing as in a Leaf.First task is to find what inverter to use with it.
The motor, compound planetary reduction gear set, and differential are all coaxial. The reduction is all done by the compound planetary set, not in two stages like a Tesla or Leaf unit, so if you could remove the differential (or replace it with a spool) you would still have 9.05:1 reduction.It's only compelling to me if you can unbolt the final drive and still have 2:1 reduction...Otherwise it's more or less a stronger Leaf motor.
Maybe when you unbolt the gearbox it has the same bolt pattern as a small block ford...? 😁
Any luck on this?I'm still trying to bust through to that director by using channels outside Ford, but don't hold your breath.
