Charge Cars won our hearts last year when they revealed their electric 1967 Ford Mustang. It combined the classic design with the powerful potential of modern technology. Now the vehicle is coming to the public at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The British firm announced plans to put the vehicle on display at the Supercar Paddock at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year, marking the global launch.
The Mustang is an impressive modification. More than just an engine swap, The vehicle was fitted all over with modern quality while still maintaining the original design and feel. The original powertrain was replaced with electric motors and a battery pack, resulting in about 402 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque. Charge Cars cites about 200 miles of range on a full charge with average vehicle use.
On the exterior, the body remains largely unchanged, while the wheels, lights, and grille were given some improvements. These changes don't detract from the original vision, fortunately. Inside, you get all the fun of touchscreens, electric windows, and modern audio, while still boasting the original dash shapes and seat designs.
This isn't a one-time creation. The firm plans on building 500 examples, costing $380,000 each. You can see one in person if you attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed this July 4 through 7.
