Ford filed a patent diagram with the USPTO showing a Ford electric SUV doing a burnout
- Ford hopes to patent a feature that would let its electric cars do burnouts with their front and rear wheels.
- It's possible since high-performance EVs usually have two motors — one in the rear and one up front.
- Ford said the new tech would help heat a vehicle's tires and also "provide a visual display of power."
Ford's new tech will let electric cars show off with smoky, four-wheel burnouts
The technology will help EV owners get better friction on the racetrack. But it'll also look just plain cool.
