Even though there is no provision for an electric Ford Mustang, but a startup company has decided to combine resto-mod with all-electric conversion. This UK based Startup Company Charge collaborated with Arrival who is known for electric trucks that is used by Royal Mail, UPS, Roborace, and Michelin for powertrain. Participants in this project are engineers from Jaguar Land Rover, Williams F1 and McLaren Automotive. Electric Ford Mustang will be offered as coupe and convertible. The classic looks of the Electric Ford Mustang is attributed to the official license shell from 1960s Mustang.
There are handfuls of tweaking performed on Electric Ford Mustang that indicates it is no ordinary Mustang. Charge is coy about the specifics, but Electric Ford Mustang will features modern lighting units, revised grille and ten-spoke wheels. To top it off, a high-performance braking system with gold calipers is made available. Charge and Arrival created a high-tech powertrain that offers 402hp and 1,200Nm of torque. It is backed-up by a 64kWh battery and undisclosed number of electric motors. The electric powertrain enables the Electric Ford Mustang to sprint from 0-62mph in under 3.1 seconds and has driving range of 124mph. The company’s website also indicates that this electric Mustang will be rear and all-wheel drive variants.
Cabin of the Ford Mustang EV will be modernistic and consist of luxurious and bespoke interiors like the “state-of-the-art components and personalized digital interface”. Instagram post also indicates that it will feature digital instrument cluster along with a large infotainment system. Other noticeable features include bright pedals, leather-wrapped dashboard and retro-inspired steering wheel. Price of the Electric Ford Mustang will start from £200,000 (€229,625/$260,145).
