900-strong Ford Mustang Lithium EV debuted at SEMANovember 5, 2019
The American company presented at the auto show a powerful Mustang on an electric drive.
The Ford Mustang-style electric crossover is waiting for its big debut on November 17, but if you’re really interested in the future of the Mustang, the American brand brought an interesting model to the 2019 SEMA Show. Ford Mustang Lithium is a full-fledged electric car that has a capacity of 900 horsepower. And you can control this power with a six-speed manual gearbox.
The Ford team teamed up with Webasto to create this unique prototype, and no matter how you feel about electric cars, the operational capabilities of this car cannot be denied. Located under the hood, the V8 is a dual-core Phi-Power electric motor with two power inverters. Webasto’s 800-volt battery system provides electricity. It should be noted that the power unit exceeds the capabilities of other electric cars by half.
The biggest surprise is the availability of a six-speed manual gearbox, an improved version of Getrag MT82. The differential of the Super 8.8 Torsen with Ford Performance semi-axles ultimately connects power to the rear wheels, where, we suspect, the tires won’t last long. It should also be noted lowered suspension, Brembos brakes and body kit.
The biggest cry of enthusiasts about the appearance of electric vehicles is the lack of a soul. This prototype may be slower due to limitations, but it can be infinitely more attractive for driving. As Ford plans to move significantly into the electric realm in the coming years, such a machine could serve as a bridge to attract fans to the new Mustang generation.
