Ford Mustang Lithium: One-off electric concept sparks a stir

By RELAXNEWS | 7 November 2019


LAS VEGAS: Ford has presented a high-powered all-electric version of its Mustang, produced in collaboration with German parts manufacturer Webasto, at the SEMA Show, which is set to run until tomorrow.

Although it is a concept that will never go into production, Ford caused a sensation with the new Mustang, which no doubt benefits from all-electric technology that will soon be seen on the road in its forthcoming emissions-free models.

Although it did not provide extensive details about the concept's performance, the American manufacturer did point out that the all-electric Mustang produces over 900hp.

Its powertrain is supplied by an 800-volt battery developed by Webasto, and the driver of the Mustang can opt to make use of a six-gear manual transmission, which is unprecedented in an electric vehicle.

Lastly, the Mustang Lithium offers four different drive modes - Valet, Sport, Track, and Beast - which are accessible via its 10.4-inch dashboard touchscreen.

The exhibition of the concept comes at a particular time for Ford, which has planned a highly charged news flow for the last quarter of 2019.

On Nov 18, the manufacturer is set to unveil its new all-electric SUV, which, to boot, is also "inspired" by the Mustang. It has been rumoured to be called Mach E.
