Revealed: Stupid-fast electric all-wheel drive Ford Mustang


Electrified Ford Mustangs are on their way, but now there’s a way to get an ‘Stang before Ford makes it. A British firm called Charge Automotive is planning on producing a run of 499 brand-new electric Mustangs using styling language from the 1960s. Like any electric performance car, this one will be fast — 0-62 mph is achieved in 3.1 seconds using what we can guess (Charge doesn’t say) is at least two electric motors. Those motors produce 402 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. That sounds pretty -like if you ask us.

Charge is using a 64 kWh battery pack, good for 124 miles of range. You won’t be going too far per charge, but you’ll be getting there in a hurry. Rear-wheel or all-wheel modes are both available. From the video it looks like you can switch between the two modes via a massive touchscreen on the center stack. Other options are shown in the video, too, like a ride height selector, so it could have an air suspension. The powertrain itself comes from the EV technology supplier Arrival.

The Mustang shown by Charge is about as menacing-looking of an electric vehicle as we’ve ever seen. You’ll be able to have one in either fastback or convertible body styles. This company isn’t on its first rodeo either — Charge says it has contributed to projects for Williams F1, McLaren and Jaguar Land Rover.

Plenty of details aren’t being released at this date, but it’s impressive tech when looking at it from a spreadsheet perspective. Charge says they’ll be priced from $255,509 and ship to buyers in September next year. You’d better really love Mustangs and electric technology to plunk down a quarter-million dollars on this thing. Charge is collecting reservations now for $6,388 (converted from British pounds).
