Ford reveals powerful electric Mustang lithium with 900 horsepower



Later this month Ford ( F ) will unveil a "Mustang-inspired" electric SUV that customers will be able to purchase. However, the SUV will likely be far less powerful than this show car, which Ford calls the Mustang Lithium.

Ford did not provide exact performance figures for the Mustang Lithium, but described the car's acceleration as "fantastic."

  The Ford Mustang Lithium has two clear panels in the hood to give a view of the parts below.
The Mustang Lithium was created together with the auto parts supplier Webasto and has a six-speed manual transmission. It is unusual in an electric car because, unlike petrol and diesel powered cars, electric cars do not actually need gearboxes at more than one speed. The transmission in the Mustang Lithium is a specially powerful gearbox designed to handle 1,000 feet-pounds of torque, or traction, put out of the car's electric motor.

John Lupu, Director of Webasto Customized Solutions, said the manual transmission was included "because it puts control of the vehicle back in the driver's hands." The driver can simply leave the car in third gear all the time and drive it like any other electric car or choose to change gears.

Mustang Lithium is powered by an 800-volt power system, more than twice the power of most electric vehicles on the road today, according to Ford. The driver can choose from four driving modes, including Sport, Track and Beast. The fourth is a valet mode for when you have to hand out someone else the key.

Mustang Lithium was also designed as a way to test heat management systems in an electric car, according to Ford. Electric car batteries and motors tend to heat up during heavy use, such as racing.

  The Ford Mustang Lithium has a six-speed manual transmission, a very unusual feature of an electric car.

The hood of the car has two small clear polycarbonate plates to give a view of the battery pack and electric motor underneath.

The Electric Mustang was unveiled at the specially equipped Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, an industry show for companies that make car and truck parts. Large car manufacturers often reveal custom show cars at the event. At last year's SEMA show, General Motors ( GM ) unveiled a 700 horsepower electric Camaro.
In addition to the upcoming SUV, Ford is also developing an all-electric version of the F-150 pickup. To get the most impact, Ford begins rolling out electric vehicles with models tied to the most well-known Mustang and F-150 brands, Ford executives have said.
