Revealed: Stupid-fast electric all-wheel drive Ford Mustang


News / Friday, November 16th, 2018

Electrified Ford Mustangs are on their way, but now there is a way to get an electric "Stang before Ford gets it." A British company called Charge Automotive is planning to produce a series of 499 brand new electric Mustangs with a style from the sixties. Like any electric car it performs fast – 0-62 km / h is reached in 3.1 seconds using what we can guess (Charge does not say) is at least two electric motors. Those engines produce 402 hp and 885 pound-foot torque. That sounds pretty Mustang-like if you ask us.

Charging is done with a 64 kWh battery pack, good for 124 miles range. You will not go too far at a time, but you will be in a hurry. Rear wheel drive or all-wheel drive are both available. From the video it seems like you can switch between the two drive modes via a large touchscreen on the center console. Other options are also shown in the video, such as a selector lever knob, so that it can have air suspension. The powertrain itself comes from the EV technology supplier Arrival.

The Mustang shown by Charge is about as threatening as an electric vehicle as we have ever seen. You can have one in both fastback and convertible styles. This company is also not at its first rodeo – Charge says it has contributed to projects for Williams F1, McLaren and Jaguar Land Rover.

At the moment not many details are released, but it is an impressive technology if you look at it from a spreadsheet perspective. Charge says they are priced from $ 255,509 and will be sent to buyers in September next year. You better really love Mustangs and electrical technology to raise a quarter of a million dollars for this. Charge now collects reservations for $ 6,388 (converted from British pounds).
