The California Route 1 utilizes an 88 kWh battery pack and a rear-mounted permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor.

T​he Tesla Model Y Long Range is fitted with all-wheel drive as standard, however a rear-wheel drive Standard Range model was just announced with 244 miles of range. While all-wheel drive Mach-E trim levels are obtainable, the California Route 1 comes with rear-wheel drive and 290 horsepower, the latter of which is complimented by 317 lb-ft of torque. A 6.1 second 0-60 mph time is possible, according to Ford, which is leisurely compared to the Model Y Long Range's 4.4 second run.

  • This obsession with range needs to end. It's pointless and it is well documented that Tesla has figured out how to game the testing system to show longer range but in the real world Tesla's ranges are no better than other EVs. What really matters is how fast the batteries can be recharged.
