And what better way than to build an all-electric Mustang fastback with a six-speed manual transmission?
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 Association (SEMA) trade show in Las Vegas.
The vehicle is a one-off, meaning this won’t hit the marketplace anytime soon, if ever.
It’s also a testbed for battery and thermal management technologies Webasto and Ford are creating for the growing e-mobility automotive segment.
The vehicle has custom carbon fiber body components, a 1.0-inch lowered stance and 20-inch staggered fitting forged wheels, according to Ford.
