Ford Mustang goes electric and it's not even Ford doing it. A slender-looking Mustang with a Tesla-inspired interior will debut in Goodwood next month.
UK-based startup Charge is behind the vehicle, which is not a conversation.
They use officially licensed shells of both Fastback and Convertible 1960's Mustangs and build the electric vehicle around the body.
We reported on them last year when they released the first pictures and announced the specs.
The engine power includes a 64 kWh battery pack, a 300 kW electric motor, and a DC-fast charging system that supports a 50 kW charge rate.
Charging says it can be configured for rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, and it can deliver up to 7,500 Nm of torque and 1
0 to 100 km / h (62 mph) acceleration can be achieved in only 3.09 seconds.
While 64 kWh has a significant vehicle capacity for vehicle size, the range is expected to be only 200 km (125 miles) – probably due to aerodynamics 19 performance of the old muscle car design.
Talking about the old muscle car they really did right to the design of this American classic:
But they also embraced the fact that this is a murder all- electric vehicle and not a conversion, which means it comes with a lot of technology.
The interior appears to be inspired by the Tesla Model S interior with the large vertical screen:
When announcing the electric charging string in last year, booting said it would only cost 499 units and they would cost 200,000 US $ ($ 254,000 USD).
Now they list a price of £ 300,000 ($ 381,000 USD) on their website.
The prototype will be shown for the first time at the Michelin Supercar Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK in the first week of July.
Here is a video of the vehicle in the workplace where you can see that it can switch f room AWD to RWD and activate a "burnout mode":
