By 2030, Ford plans to create an all-electric sports car that will be smaller in size than the current Mustang. Renders of such a novelty were presented by renowned artist Tyler Kwon.

Even the iconic Ford Mustang sports coupe is bound to go electric at some point in the future if the American brand’s leadership wants the model to remain competitive in the future. One designer, Tyler Kwon, shared with us his take on the Mustang E1 – a car that’s smaller than the current Mustang and has an all-electric motor.

Mr. Kwon has designed the electric Ram pickup and has also worked on several projects for legendary design firm Pininfarina, so he knows what he’s doing.

Its more compact Mustang E1 takes inspiration from the 1962 Mustang I, one of the original Ford Mustang concepts. The aluminum-bodied car featured a roofless design and was powered by a 1.5-liter V4 engine in the middle.

While this car was a mid-engined gasoline speedster, the Mustang E1 is a hardtop convertible. Judging by the render, the novelty borrows some design elements from the old model. Things like the E1’s pointed nose, crossbars and rounded windshield all go back to the original concept while maintaining a modern look. In addition, the E1 also includes design details from some of the more modern Mustangs, such as a hood bulge, beefy rear fenders, and signature triple taillights.

All in all, the E1 presents a really interesting look at a possible future for the Mustang and makes one wonder what could be an iconic pony car in the face of the industry’s imminent shift to electric vehicles over the next decade.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that an empty electric Ford F-150 pickup truck will travel a third more than a loaded one. Ford recently unveiled the F-150 Lightning. However, this did not stop the novice designer Tyler Kwon from showing his vision of the Ford electric truck: the car on the renders is more compact, which is much more convenient in big cities.
