Ford Eluminator EV Crate Will Offer 281 hp

Ford charges up for aftermarket performance

  • Electric crate motor goes live on Ford Performance site

  • Uses the motor from the Mach-E GT


Ford‘s Eluminator crate electric powertrain is now online on the Ford Performance parts page. That gives us power, torque, and even the cost of the new electric motor that’s designed to be dropped into almost any vehicle for an EV conversion.

The Ford Eluminator electric crate motor isn’t slated to be revealed until November, but the important bits are up early. On the page (via Bozi Tatarevic on Twitter), Ford says that the motor used is, in fact, the one also used in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, meaning it has undergone full factory driveline testing and validation.

Peak power for the electric motor is 281 hp, and it makes 317 lb-ft of torque. The motor can spin to 13,800 rpm and it comes with a factory gear ratio of 9.05:1. The assembly tips the scales at 205 lbs, or much lighter than any gas V8 it would replace.

In the kit, which will retail for US $3,900, the high-voltage motor to traction inverter harness is included, along with a low voltage harness and vent tube assembly. Ford notes that the kit does not include a high voltage battery, which isn’t a surprise at this price, but that it doesn’t include the inverter or a control system. Those are both parts that are necessary to run the motor and that could be difficult to find aftermarket. If you’re interested in this conversion, you’re probably also hoping Ford makes those parts available.

Not surprising, the motor is 50-state emissions legal, Ford says.
