Tech-Laden Electric Mustang Can Hit 60 MPH In Less Than 4 Seconds
: Video

For some folks, “EV” is a dirty word. The prospect of going battery-powered can be scary for those enthusiasts that live and breathe gasoline, but as this electric Mustang from U.K.-based builder Charge Automotive proves, EVs certainly don’t have to be boring.

We profiled Charge Automotive’s electric Mustang efforts back in March, when the company shared a video of any early development vehicle doing a nice, smokey burnout. Now, it’s looking like the company is ready to share the final product.

From a distance, this electric Mustang looks like a well-executed restomod, with classic ‘60s styling and modern touches throughout. However, once we start digging, we discover that this is most definitely not your typical muscle car.

Equipped with a 64-kWh battery capacity and configurable AWD system (RWD at the touch of a button!), this electric Mustang lays down 350 kW (469 horsepower) and an impressive 1,200 Nm (885 pound-feet of torque), enabling a sprint to 60 mph in less than four seconds. Range per charge is pegged at 200 miles.

Inside, there’s a custom digital interface to control it all, plus a host of modern amenities to keep it comfortable.

Paired with the classic muscle car looks, this electric Mustang certainly makes for a potent combo. But, as expected, all this goodness won’t be cheap – pricing starts at £300,000 ($374,241 at current exchange rates, 9/13/2019) and goes up from there depending on options selected.

Of course, for the money, buyers do get quite a bit of exclusivity, as Charge Automotive is limiting production at just 499 units. The company is taking reservations now, and require an initial (fully refundable) deposit of £5,000 ($6,237 at current exchange rates, 9/13/2019).

At least buyers don’t need to worry about emissions. Unless, of course, you count all that tire smoke.

As Ford moves closer and closer to a heavily electrified future, including the introduction of the electric Mustang-inspired crossover dubbed the Mach-E, it’s nice to know that we’ll still have the option to roast the meats on demand. Indeed, maybe electrification ain’t so bad after all.
