London-based technology company Charge Cars has reimagined the classic 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback into a contemporary luxury EV as its first proof of concept vehicle limited to 499 units. The engineers from Charge Cars worked closely with EV technology company Arrival, the world’s first AI racing platform Roborace, and tire manufacturer Michelin for this project.

The original combustion engine has been replaced with a 536 horsepower electric motor capable of accelerating 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The car boasts a range of 200 miles and its DC fast charging capabilities allow its 62 kWh battery pack to charge from 20 to 80 percent in an hour.

Bespoke interiors are modernized with the addition of digital user interfaces, sleek bucket seats, and premium touches. Exteriors minimize the use of in-house lightweight composite panels and add streamlining features for a new look while remaining true to the original car’s spirit. Studio head Mark Roberts emphasizes that this offering is no mere restomod, but “a brand-new electric Mustang, completely redefined,” and built from scratch.

Charge Cars’ Electric Mustang is now available for reservation at a starting price of $460,000 USD. A variety of interior and exterior trim options are available for modification upon request.
