This is the £350,000 production-ready Charge electric Mustang

British company begins building 499 models of its electrified pony car

Published: 10 Mar 2022

This is it, the final production version of Charge’s rather delightful electric Mustang. It’s not a restoration, before you ask, it's “a brand-new electric Mustang, completely redefined,” according to Charge boss Mark Roberts.

Only 499 of these e-Stangs will be built. Each one is an officially licensed shell (based on the 1967 Fastback), filled with 64kWh battery packs fuelling peak power of 400kW – around 536bhp and a frankly incalculable 1500Nm of torque. That’s 1,106lb ft. Which is about as much as Superman deployed when he turned back Planet Earth.

Hyperbole aside, Charge reckons the electric Mustang is good for 0-60mph in 3.9secs, while the projected range stands at 200 miles. It’ll accept 50kW DC charging so that battery can be topped up reasonably quickly, and each car will be hand built in London to the buyer’s exacting spec.

Indeed, Roberts wants each customer “to personalise their cars to express their creativity and personality in the colours, materials and details”. Go on folks, be brave. It’s an electric Mustang.

“We’ve respected the iconic silhouette and the classic lines of the ’67,” Roberts added, “but we’ve given the car a fresh, contemporary feel by streamlining features and minimising panels.” Certainly looks fantastic. Though, they come with a fantastic price tag too – each car starts at £350,000.
