Ford Mustang Hybrid Will Get Powerful V8January 26, 2019
New patent applications from the American brand show us the V8 engine, which is assisted by a pair of electric motors.
According to current plans for the future, Ford is planning to present a sporty electric crossover, which Brian Cranston’s advertising hints at, an electric performance of the F-150 pickup, as well as a completely new pick-up that will be based on the Focus model. In addition, work is underway on a hybrid Ford Mustang – new patent applications from the American brand hint at this version of the sports legend.
The patent filed by the automaker Ford back in 2017, but which was published only a couple of days ago, depicts a “twin-engine system for a hybrid vehicle.”
The patent was published on the website of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The illustration shows a V8 engine with hybrid components. Is this confirmation of plans to create a hybrid version of the Ford Mustang, which we have been waiting for? We are not sure – but this is how it will theoretically work.
The internal combustion engine (we hope it will be the V8) will transfer power to the rear wheels. Ahead are two electric motors, as noted in the patents, they will drive the front of the car. Thus, it will be not only an electrified Mustang, but also an all-wheel drive.
The patent does not say that this power plant is designed specifically for the Ford Mustang Hybrid.
Just a couple of minutes ago, we published a video on which the first-generation Ford Focus wagon without shock absorbers literally jumps over the bumps.
