News Electric Ford Bronco Has a Special Kind of Appeal

Electric Ford Bronco Has a Special Kind of Appeal

Zero Labs has a very unique take on the Ford Bronco as we wait to see what Ford has in store.

The upcoming Ford Bronco is going to be one of the most significant new vehicles of 2020 (or 2019 if Ford surprises us this year), but all we have to go on right now are teasers and unconfirmed reports. This electric Ford Bronco by California builder Zero Labs is real and the company plans to commercialize it.

Zero Labs opened its doors in 2015 and specializes in electrifying classics. This electric Ford Bronco doesn’t yet have a name, but there are already plans to build 150 units. The company has laid out the initial specifications for its electrified Bronco and is current taking reservations.

The first thing you notice about the Zero Labs Bronco is that it looks very similar to the first-generation two-door Bronco with subtle variations such as the closed grille up front. The interior is a modern twist on the classic Bronco cockpit. We especially love the stainless steel gear shift lever connected to the five-speed manual gearbox.

Yes, you read that correctly, this electric vehicle has a five-speed manual. It’s connected to a 369-horsepower electric motor powered by a 70-kWh battery that provides 190 miles of range, or about 300 kilometers. Level 2 charging is available but Zero Labs doesn’t provide a time frame for a full charge. Fox suspension, Brembo pistons and an Atlas two-speed transfer case are also included.

We don’t know how much the electric Ford Bronco will cost and neither does Zero Labs as the project is just getting off the ground. If we were in Southern California we could definitely see ourselves cruising the PCH in one of these.
