Charge Cars Unveils Its Electric Mustang at Goodwood

After a few months of teasing, Charge Cars finally lifted the veil on their 100% electric vintage Ford Mustang during this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The Goodwood ​​Festival of Speed has been one of the hottest events on the planet for many years. It is therefore legitimate for manufacturers to decide to reveal some of their future production models.

This year, the British company Charge Cars will take advantage of its passage at this great British event to show its all-electric Ford Mustang, the ponycar that respects the silhouette of yesteryear, but who abandons the V8 engine in favour of a pair of electric motors, one per axle.

As a result, the power is quite in the tone of the American muscle car with 536 horsepower and a gargantuan 885 lb-ft of torque. With its two electric motors, the Charge Cars Mustang is also distinguished from other ponycars in the history of the model by its all-wheel drive available via the central touch screen in the cabin. Take the time to watch the official video which shows a brief excerpt of what to expect from this special edition limited to 499 copies.

The silhouette is not unlike Eleanor, the star of the film Gone in 60 seconds (2000), the Charge Cars Ford Mustang is clearly inspired by the outside design of it with its widened fenders, its rear-end inspired by the Shelby GT500, not to mention this resolutely more aggressive front bumper.

Inside, it is probably inspired by what is offered in Tesla with a large central touch screen. Moreover, if we rely on a short video, we must use the latter to access the gear lever, the driver who places the car in “D” does it from the central screen in the short teaser on the Charge Cars YouTube channel.

The only problem with this superb zero emission Mustang is its price. Indeed, Charge Cars plans to ask £300,000 (or just under $500,000 CAD at the time of writing).
