Electrified Ford Mustang with 1,120 lb-ft of torque comes to the US
Although the Michigan-based automaker has already brought its legendary Ford Mustang into the age of electric mobility, most muscle car fans are likely dissatisfied with the rather expensive Ford Mustang Mach-E, which has strangely become a crossover SUV. Therefore, a UK-based automotive company is now picking up a slack by building a true electric Mustang.
Its good-looking EV is based on the legendary first generation of the Ford Mustang, more precisely the sleek fastback model from 1967, which is widely considered a classic among American muscle cars enthusiasts. Charge Cars plans to restore and convert 500 units of this vehicle and equip them with a modern electric drivetrain, which sports four motors with an output of 536 horsepower and 1,120 lb-ft of torque. The electric 1967 Ford Mustang accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds, its top speed is limited to 150 mph.
Needless to say, the suspension and braking system have been completely overhauled and modernized , which is why the electric Ford Mustang should handle noticeably better than the original. The battery can store 63 kWh and should provide the electric muscle car with enough energy for a range of up to 200 miles per charge, while the fast charging capacity of the electric Mustang maxes out at 50 kW.
Furthermore, the beautifully customized interior features brown leather as well as a huge Tesla-style center display. Unfortunately, Charge Cars has not revealed the price of its electric 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback. After various appearances at car shows such as the Goodwood Festival in the UK, the retro EV is set to make its US debut this month, and it will also be on display at the upcoming 2022 LA Auto Show from mid to late November.
