The company launched in 2016 with the idea of ​​”bringing some character and some soul to the world of EVs,” Nicholas Osy de Zegwaart, Charge Cars’ global head of sales, told Insider.

The ’67, featuring the Ford-licensed design of the 1960s Mustang Fastback, is the company’s first vehicle. It’s currently in development, with deliveries set to start before the end of 2023, Osy de Zegwaart said.

The electrified classic promises some impressive stats, including a whopping 1,170 pound-feet of torque provided by four motors. (Most electric cars have one or two.)

Range is estimated at 200 miles, less than most new EVs on the market. Osy de Zegwaart said the car’s battery capacity was limited by the Mustang’s size. Plus, customers probably won’t travel all that far in the ’67 anyway, he said.

While the sports car’s overall dimensions and key lines are true to the original, Charge Cars opted to make body panels — the doors, hood, trunk, and so on — out of weight-saving carbon fiber.
