Ford F-100 Eluminator

Starting our list is the F-100 Eluminator, a concept truck meant to highlight and showcase the benefits of electric propulsion. Equipped with a 2021 Mach-E GT Performance Edition battery electric powertrain, the twin front and rear electric traction motors produce a combined 480 hp and 634 lb-ft of torque. All of this hardware is packaged in a classic 1978 F-100 pickup that was displayed at the SEMA showcase in Las Vegas.
Specifically, the Eluminator is a new electric crate motor currently being sold by Ford for $3,900. The 1978 F-100 was equipped with one to show the practicality of electric vehicle conversions. The Eluminator is street legal in all 50 states and represents Ford’s commitment to the developing field of electric vehicles.

Ford Team “Fordzilla” P1 Racecar 

The “Fordzilla” P1 takes the idea of “concept car” a bit more literally than some of its peers in this article. The P1’s journey began in March 2020, when a Twitter poll was released by Ford asking gamers to vote on the package and features of a new race car. A quarter-million votes later, the P1 was born.
The end result is something that truly has to be seen to be believed. It’s low to the ground, with a GT-style front end and hypnotically-sculpted paneling. It almost looks like a spaceship, and, in fact, the driver’s seat is covered by a cockpit that was inspired by jet fighters.
The story behind the P1 is just as interesting as its dynamic appearance—its design process marks the first time an auto manufacturer has brought a collaborative virtual mockup to life with an actual physical car. Furthermore, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was built and designed with no face-to-face interaction by a team spread across five countries. Despite these obstacles, the prototype only took seven weeks to build—less than half the time it would normally take.

Ford Everest Concept

The Ford Everest Concept represents Ford’s vision of a versatile mid-size, seven-seat SUV. Specifically, the Everest was designed with the Asia-Pacific marketplace in mind, and production is centered in Thailand. 
2022 saw the introduction of the model’s third generation, which offers an optional upgrade to a 3.0L turbo V6. It also underwent a bit of a facelift in the new generation, while maintaining that characteristic “Ford” look. 
Sadly, despite its stellar reputation in the international market, the Everest will more than likely never be available in the US. In that regard, it joins the Toyota Hilux as a member of the “Awesome Vehicles Unavailable in the United States” club.

Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 Prototype

Another example of the power of electric propulsion, the Mustang Mach-E 1400 Prototype is an all-electric race car with absolutely staggering specs. Its seven motors and high-performance battery are capable of projecting a mind-boggling 1,400 horsepower!
The product of 10,000 hours of collaboration between Ford Performance and RTR Vehicles, the 1400 Prototype will be making an appearance at a NASCAR race soon, although it is currently unclear as to whether or not it will actually be competing. As it stands, Ford is investing $11.5 billion in electric vehicles worldwide, hopefully setting a precedent for the years to come.

Ford C-Max Solar Energi Concept

Last but certainly not least is the Ford C-Max Solar Energi Concept, potentially the most interesting car on our entire list. You can probably already tell by the name, but the
Solar Energi
is meant to be powered by the sun’s rays, taking the renewable resource conversation to the next level.
First revealed in 2014, the Solar Energi is powered by a roof-mounted solar-panel array that powers a 118-hp electric motor (which augments a 2.0L four-cylinder gas engine). On a fully-charged battery, the Solar Energi is capable of traveling up to 21 miles before having to revert to gas power. It might not be quite road trip worthy, but it’s typically enough to cover at least half of the average daily commute.
Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that you’ll see a Solar Energi on the road or at the dealership anytime soon, as solar technology is still a bit too complicated and expensive to power cars reliably.

Unfortunately, almost all of the vehicles on this list were either one-offs, hypotheticals, or custom-made, and therefore are unavailable for purchase. The Ford Everest can be purchased for around $36,000 USD, but only in the Asia/Pacific marketplace (i.e. not in America).
