A Brand New Classic Ford Mustang With An EV Powertrain Is Coming To Goodwood

Charge Automotive, a UK-based EV start-up company, announce the debut of its electric Ford Mustang at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The company aims to produce 499 examples of the battery electric Mustang, which will use officially licensed bodyshells of the iconic 1960s muscle car. Prices start from £300,000 -that’s $381k in current exchange rates.

The all-electric muscle car will come fitted with a pair of electric motors providing a combined 469hp (475PS) and 885lb-ft (1200Nm) of torque, drawing their energy from a 64kWh battery pack. The components of the electric powertrain are supplied by Arrival.

Charge Automotive claims that their electric Ford Mustang is capable of a 0-60mph in 4 seconds flat, before hitting 149mph (239km/h) flat out. As for the driving range, 200 miles (321km) on a full charge is quoted, along with a 50kW DC fast-charging compatibility.

The company hasn’t revealed yet any images of the interior but we do get a glimpse of it in their short teaser video. Charge’s electric Mustang will offer a high-end bespoke cabin featuring state-of-the-art components and a personalized digital interface.

With their EV take on the Ford Mustang, Charge Automotive joins the world of electric classic cars that even includes major manufacturers like Aston Martin, which offers an electric conversion for classic DB6 Volantes, as well as Jaguar and its EV-powered E-Type.

Reservations are now open for Charge’s electric Ford Mustang, with the company planning to start deliveries as soon as this September.

    Desirable?…..of course.

    This is where the EV market can clean up, when you produce an interchangeable modular skateboard platform coachbuilders can purchase them in bulk and attach any body you want to it.

    You’re only limited by your budget and imagination.
