Charge Cars, as we have learned last year, was the brainchild of ex-McLaren Head of Design Mark Roberts. Rob, whom have worked on legendary McLaren rides like the F1, P1 and the new McLaren Elva, has ditched designing fossil fuel powered automobiles in favor of electric drive.
Rob is not designing EV from the ground per se, though. He chose to re-imagine classics, such as the 60s Mustang, into an eco-friendly American muscle car.
The beauty of the Charge Cars Ford Mustang Electric Vehicle is, it retains the iconic design that makes a Mustang so instantly recognizable while lending it with 350 kW of peak electric power that is kept juiced by a 64 kWh battery system, good for 200 miles (322 kilometers) range.
