British company Charge Cars will showcase its production-intent all-electric Ford Mustang Fastback at the inaugural Salon Privé London event to be held from April 21-23.
It has been a long road for Charge Cars up until this point as it first unveiled the electric Mustang in late 2018 before following it up with the production-intent model in early March this year.
The car uses an officially licensed shell and the London-based firm then modernizes it with new LED headlights, a fully-enclosed grille, and LED taillights. The car also features distinctive wheels and has flush door handles, giving it a particularly sleek look.
“The Electric Mustang has already captured people’s imagination, but this will be the first chance to see how it can be personalized to each buyer’s preference,” Charge Cars director David Bagley said. “We’re delighted that Charge Cars will be using Salon Privé London to allow its clients to get under the Mustang’s skin and understand what makes this limited edition EV so accomplished.”
Found beneath the stunning bodywork is a 64 kWh modular battery pack that powers a pair of electric motors with 536 hp and 1,106 lb-ft (1,500 Nm) of torque. The car has all-wheel drive and apparently needs just 3.9 seconds to hit 60 mph (96 km/h) while also having the ability to travel up to 200 miles (322 km) on a single charge. The electric Mustang can be charged at up to 50 kW.
In addition to showcasing the completed car at Salon Prive, Charge Cars will also have a display model of the car’s interior which shares very little with that of an original 1967 Mustang since the EV is essentially a brand-new car with a reproduction Mustang body. Among the most intriguing elements of the car’s cabin includes a unique transmission tunnel with large buttons for the gears, a three-spoke steering wheel, unique seats, and a portrait-oriented infotainment screen. The electric muscle car also has a digital instrument cluster.
