What you’re saying could explain the trend in the tape.But IS there a fix?
Some people (see above) seem to think this is the limit of the motors and battery. Personally that seems unlikely based on what other EV vehicles are capable of, but that’s the theory.
And also, I’ve said it before, if it gets 0-60 in 3.5 and delivers 480 hp 600+ tq, in Fords eyes, what’s to fix?
The high tq, but relatively low hp numbers also gives us a hint as to what’s happening where.
It seems like it’s about 10 mph per 1000 rpm. That means peak tq and peak acceleration happens around 40 mph and by 50-60 mph you are already down 200+ lb ft from max. Hp = tq x rpm/5252.
Basically if it were still making peak tq at 5252 rpm (52 mph or so), it would have over 600 hp. And it doesn’t.
Great 1.865 on 60’, But 5.137 at 330, which is not as quick as I’d expect from that 60’.
indicates it’s dropping off even by 30-40 mph.
Seems early to me to lose the rate of acceleration, but would match what you are saying.
