Charge Automotive recently welcomed the future of classic cars with their EV 1960’s Ford Mustang. The UK-based startup is partnering up with Arrival for this venture. Arrival will provide key components for the cars such as the batterie packs and the motors.
The Eleanor-looking Mustang will be produced in a limited series of 499 cars and will be available in both Fastback and Convertible form.
A 64 kWh battery is going to be standard and will offer a range of 200 km. The all-electric Mustang will sprint to 0-100 km/h in 3.09 sec according to the company. It will be offered in two variants, RiWD or AiWD and will generate a peak power of 300kW, 1200 Nm of motor torque and 7,500 Nm of wheel torque.
With a team of highly qualified engineers ranging Williams F1, McLaren Automotive to Jaguar Land Rover we can assume this car will be way more than just a converted-to-EV 1960’s Ford Mustang.
The retro Mustang EV will set you back £200,000 ($260,000 USD) and will go up from there with the options and accessories you want to add.
If you want to see and/or try the car for yourself Charge will be doing a few test drive events with their car from March to September 2019 all around the globe. Their World Tour will hit New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, Munich, Paris, Milan, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai.
Reserve your Charge Mustang now as they plan to deliver the first orders of this American icon starting in September 2019.
