London-based technology startup Charge Cars makes all-electric versions of iconic classic cars with advanced electronic technology. They licensed the legendary look and feel of the 1960s Ford Mustang. Now, they’re adding a personalized digital user interface and ultimate electric performance.

It’s shiny, but how powerful is this innovative vehicle?

Let’s look at the specs:

  • 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds
  • Top speed of 149 mph (239 kmh)
  • 200 mile (322 km) range
  • 536 horsepower (400 kW peak power) electric motor
  • 5,532 pound-feet (1500 Nm) motor torque
  • 50 kW DC charging
  • AiWD drive
  • 64 kWh battery pack charges from 20% to 80% in one hour

 

Engineers with a Vision

The engineers at work on the electric version of the 1967 Mustang Fastback have extensive luxury high-performance vehicle design experience. Their former projects include the Jaguar Land Rover and McLaren Automotive designs.

Now they aim to create fun, exciting vehicles with zero emissions.

A Luxury Price Tag

With plans to produce only 499 Mustangs, the company is taking reservations for the cars priced starting at £350,000.

It’s an interesting business model. With scarcity built in, the company brands itself as a technology firm rather than a manufacturer.

It seems that the future is arriving bit by bit everyday. Do you have innovative technology news to share?
