Now, Ford and Webasto are replying to that Camaro with a well-and-true electric ponycar of their own for SEMA 2019, the Lithium Mustang.

In this configuration, the Mustang develops 900 horsepower and 1000 ft. -lbs. of torque, numbers that are achieved nearly instantly. The drive is on the rear axle, and gear switching is six-speed manual.

We all know that the Ford Mustang is the quintessential pony auto with an abundance of power, tail-happy handling, and a penchant for mowing down pedestrians at Cars and Coffee events.

Other highlights include Ford Performance's Track Handling Pack and strut tower brace, Brembo six-piston front brakes from the Shelby GT350R, a TurboDX charging solution and TurboCord portable charger. The vehicle even sported a manual transmission.

A Phi-Power dual-core electric motor and dual power inverters give the machine more than 900 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of instantaneously available torque-all powered by an 800-volt Webasto battery system with EVDrive Technology that can discharge a mega-watt of electrical energy.

Nearly all other electric cars have a single gear which is rotated in different directions to go forwards or backwards; the Porsche Taycan has an automatic two-speed gearbox, with the lower gear used for hard acceleration from low speed.

Yes, an electric muscle vehicle, meant to be not only a proof of concept, but also a testbed for battery and thermal management technologies that will go into future production EVs.

Ford F-150 and Mustang remain two of the most beloved nameplates on roads everywhere, including roads that lead to the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association.

While most electric cars do away with a multi-speed transmission, the Ford version sports a six-speed manual which appears to be a nod to the Mustang heritage rather than serving a practical performance objective. Four driving modes are offered on the vehicle including, valet, sport, track, and beast. It is revealing its Mustang-impressed electrical SUV on November 17th forward of a 2020 debut, and there shall be a manufacturing electric F-150 inside a few years. Just like the Tesla Model S-beating Porsche Taycan, the Mustang Lithium's gets its juice from an 800-volt Webasto battery system that produces plenty of grunt while reducing weight and heat.
