Electric Mustang Lithium Unveiled by Ford and Webasto at SEMA

The fully electric Mustang Lithium produces more than 900 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque.


In what could be a foretaste of things to come for the iconic Pony Car, Ford and Webasto have teamed up to create the Mustang Lithium, which flaunts a fully electric powertrain at this year’s SEMA in Las Vegas.

What was inconceivable just a few years ago is now becoming a reality, as V8 engines are being replaced by high-output electric motors for an emissions-free, exhilarating drive. The Mustang Lithium is equipped with a dual-core electric motor provided by Phi-Power and an 800-volt battery architecture developed by Webasto, which is reportedly able to discharge a megawatt of electrical energy.

Output is announced at more than 900 horsepower and more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque. Surprisingly, the car also features a version of the Getrag MT82 six-speed manual transmission that can cope with all that torque. The Mustang Lithium also wears Ford Performance half shafts and a Super 8.8 Torsen differential, in addition to lightweight Forgeline wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber.

The car benefits from the Mustang’s Track Handling Pack, a strut tower brace and Shelby GT350-sourced Brembo six-piston front brakes. The side splitters and rear diffuser come from Sankuer Composite Technologies.

“Very similar to Ford’s push for vehicle electrification, this is an innovative way to further the technologies we’re developing to enable vehicle electrification while creating a vision of how cool the future of electric performance will be,” said Mark Denny, Webasto Customized Solutions North America President and CEO.

There are no announced plans to produce the Mustang Lithium but Ford is committed to offering electrified vehicles in the near future. That will include a fully electric, Mustang-inspired crossover as well as hybrid and fully electric variants of the Ford F-150 pickup. The current lineup also includes the Ford Explorer hybrid, hybrid and plug-in versions of the Ford Escape as well as the Ford Fusion Energi PHEV sedan.
