There may still be some years to go before internal combustion engine cars are supplanted by electric vehicles, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been given glimpses of the future both in real life and in Forza Horizon 5.
However, because there is no Electric Vehicle filter in the in-game garage, it can be oftentimes difficult to discern which cars are an electric car in Forza Horizon 5 and which are otherwise in a pinch. That’s why we’ve decided to put together this quick list of every electric car in Forza Horizon 5, as well as the means to obtain them.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400
Although it seems almost contradictory to drive a vehicle with the Ford Mustang moniker that doesn’t feature a loudly revving engine and exhaust note, those thoughts will probably gallop away when you first buckle into the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 electric car in Forza Horizon 5 thanks to its 1400 HP, seven electric motors and the ability to generate up to 2204 pounds of downforce at 160 miles per hour. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 electric car in Forza Horizon 5 is also a drifting beast thanks to its “unique chassis and powertrain for different layouts, including AWD, RWD and FWD, as well as extreme steering angles for drifting, split power delivery between the front and rear of the car.” As the official Forza Horizon 5 description puts it, “The future of drifting is here.”
To obtain the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 electric car in Forza Horizon 5, complete the “What’s the Lateral Velocity Kenneth?” accolade, which requires players to complete all six chapters, including the “Drift Club Mexico” chapter of the Drift Club Mexico Story.
2018 Jaguar I-PACE
The first electric car offering from Jaguar is the 2018 Jaguar I-PACE, which features 394 BHP and 513 ft·lb of torque together.
According to the official description from Jaguar, “The high torque density and high-energy efficiency characteristics of the [Jaguar I-PACE’s] motors deliver sports car performance, launching the I-PACE from a standing start to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The instantaneous performance is matched with exceptional ride comfort and engaging driving dynamics.”
The 2018 Jaguar I-PACE electric car in Forza Horizon 5 can be purchased from the Autoshow for 87,000 Credits, obtained as a possible Wheelspin or Super Wheelspin prize, purchased through the Auction House, or obtained through the completion of the “Unbeatable Street Racing” accolade.
