Ford Trolling with the Electric Mustang
 

 
Ford wants the world to take notice of its plans for electric vehicles. And what better way than to build an all-electric Mustang fastback with a six-speed manual transmission?

And that has us angry over here because it’s a gigantic tease of a prototype that will never make it into production. Or least that’s what Ford is saying.

Ford and Webasto revealed Tuesday the “Mustang Lithium” high-performance battery electric vehicle at the Specialty Equipment Market a*sociation (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas. The vehicle is a one-off, meaning this won’t hit the marketplace anytime soon, if ever.

Ford does say this electrified Mustang is more than just a prototype. It’s also a testbed for battery and thermal management technologies Webasto and Ford are creating for the growing e-mobility automotive segment. So maybe there is a chance?

The vehicle has a Phi-Power dual-core electric motor and dual power inverters powered by an 800-volt Webasto battery system. The package produces 900 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque, ensuring its muscle car status. The vehicle has custom carbon fiber body components, a 1.0-inch lowered stance and 20-inch staggered fitting forged wheels, according to Ford.

Ford highlights the manual transmission as the “unique” twist. And it is. Electric vehicles have single-speed gearboxes. There is really no logical reason to have a manual gearbox. For those who still love the three-pedal action though, an electric vehicle with a manual gearbox makes all the sense in the world.

The 800-volt battery system is also worth noting. The Porsche Taycan is considered the first production vehicle equipped with a system voltage of 800 volts as opposed to the usual 400 volts found in most electric cars.

Ford’s use of 800 volts might hint at which battery systems might turn up in its production electric vehicles. This more robust system should allow for faster charging. For instance, Porsche credits its 800-volt system in the Taycan for allowing it to charge from 5% to 80% in 22.5 minutes with a maximum charging power of up to 270 kw.

Ford didn’t reveal battery range. But it offered up a few other specs, including that it has four modes that apply a controlled amount of torque for different driving modes. The modes are Valet, Sport, Track and Beast. The vehicle also has an in-dash 10.4-inch touchscreen display.

“Ford has made no secret of the fact that we are electrifying our most popular nameplates,” Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s vhief product development and purchasing officer, said in a statement. “This one-off Mustang prototype is a great opportunity for us, together with Webasto, to showcase to our customers what a new electrified powertrain can do for performance in a car they already know and love.”

Ford historically backed hybrid technology. And while hybrids are still part of the mix, Ford has placed more emphasis on the development and production of all-electric vehicles. In 2018, the company said it will invest $11 billion to add 16 all-electric vehicles within its global portfolio of 40 electrified vehicles through 2022. That portfolio will include an all-new Mustang-inspired fully electric SUV in 2020 with a range of 300 miles, and an all-electric F-150 in a few years, according to Ford.

Ford unveiled in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show a range of hybrid vehicles as part of its plan to reach sales of 1 million electrified vehicles in Europe by the end of 2022.

Proof of concept is complete now.

Electric Mustang with:

6 speed manual (that can be operated in auto mode if you don't want to shift)

Has different modes to handle all that power.

Fits in the mustang chassis.

Close to 50/50 weight distribution.


As long as it competitive price wise, and can be in production within 2 years this will be a cash cow for Ford.

What exactly are you confused about?

Yes I read the article. How does that help you?

Let me guess, you'll state that Ford says there's no plans for production, etc..

Then I'll respond with do you even understand what proof of concept means.

You'll respond with something entirely off topic and I'll ignore you.

they already have modified a tesla model s to have the 6 speed


it would be nice to have that sh*t from the factory.... i have been moding and buying modded cars for over 10 years.

some people that install parts are super fu*k boys and dont don a good job on quality control.

i do my own repairs but i dont have a garage equipped to do a tranny swap, so it would be nice to have an electric 6 speed from the jump.


also speaking on the ford logo....... It is one of the sh*ttiest logos of all time!!!!!!! when i am in a ford vehicle all i can do is stare at the dumb a*s blue oval on the sterring wheel with some 1800 cursive writing in it and think: why havent they updated this sh*t in over 100 years?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

ford is wack af in my book but the 6 speed electric is fire, we will see what happens with this fu*king Frankenstein mustang

Very smart of them to use one of their strongest fastest cars to test on...

Gets me excited for their electric Ford Expedition...

Electric Mustang for production? Nah, not what Ford has up it’s sleeve at the moment. It’s still all about SUVs. This is where Ford’s head is at.

Not if that electric battery doesn’t come close to tesla mileage

Because I included information not in the article.

BX doesn't read, I don't blame it on you though.
