Could we see an electric Ford Mustang soon?
Could the future meet the past?
With the recent announcement of the Aston Martin EV Heritage programme, it would only make sense to see an electric Mustang!
A Russian start-up company called Avair Motors have taken an aluminium chassis and a carbon fibre body which has been modelled on a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback.
While the exterior looks much like a classic Mustang, it has various modern touches such as LED headlights and taillights, retractable door handles as well as 20 inch forged alloy wheels.
A revised front splitter and retractable rear spoiler will also be featured on the car which pops out at 75 mph. The rear diffuser allows for better airflow when the car is at speed.
The interior is very similar to a Tesla with the large 17 inch display screen with turbine style vents. It is very cool. It has dual automatic climate control, 12 way adjustable heated seats, reversing camera, panoramic sunroof and key less entry.
This AWD car is powered by two electric motors which produce a total of 840 bhp and 99 Nm of torque. A true beast.
Avair claim this car will do 0-62 mph in 2.2 seconds but will have an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
The claimed driving range is 315 miles courtesy of a 100 kWh battery pack which is more than enough. Aviar claims the R67 is the first electric muscle car, which is why the vehicle is fitted with an external sound system that replicates engine sounds and the exhaust note of the legendary Shelby GT500.
