While the debut of an electric Mustang SUV caused much consternation among the pony-car faithful, electrification has definitely arrived. If you don’t mind plugging in, but want a ‘real’ Mustang, a company from the United Kingdom is combining modern propulsion with first-gen Mustang style.
“We are currently taking reservations for a limited series of only 499 brand-new electric 1960’s Mustangs. The officially licensed shells preserve the classic design and styling of the legendary Ford Mustang,” says Charge Cars. “The luxury bespoke interiors, rich in ambience and detail, provide a modern high-end driving experience for connoisseurs of speed and technology. Equipped with state-of-the-art components and a personalized digital interface, these classic vehicles are back to cutting edge once again.”
Featuring an all-wheel drive electric powertrain, these Mustangs are said to produce 536 horsepower and accelerate from 0-60 mph in fewer than 4 seconds. Topping out at 149 mph, this electric Mustang’s battery will deliver a range of 200 miles. These retro-modern machines will retail for £300,000, or about $417,000, depending on options.
