To be honest we are still reeling from being blown away by one of Ford’s latest projects – the Mustang Lithium. This all-electric bad boy was on show at the SEMA 2019 floor boasting 900 horsepower and 1,000 lb-ft of torque. On top of the jaw-dropping performance numbers, there is another intriguing secret. The fact that comes with a six-speed manual transmission leaves us impressed. Unfortunately, it appears to be a concept with no word of a production model in order. However, a close alternative you might want to consider is the Mustang Mach-E.

It’s great to see the automotive industry finally adapting to what the environment needs. Emission-free alternatives are probably the most sustainable form of transportation in our current situation. The Mustang Mach-E is essentially a great platform for those who want the pony car aesthetics, minus the carbon footprint. Buyers can opt for a single-motor trim with rear-wheel-drive or the dual-motor version with AWD. Personally, we would go for the former for the sake of range, but the latter promises more power.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E runs on a 75.7 kWh lithium-ion battery. The standard trim produces 255 horsepower with 306 lb-ft of torque with a range of 230 miles. Meanwhile, the dual-motor variant manages up to 429 lb-ft of torque, but the range drops down to 210 miles. This five-seater is a capable all-electric SUV with a comfortable cabin minus the rumble of a combustion engine. Aside from the plush leather upholstery, another notable element is the 15.5-inch infotainment display. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Entertainment is likewise remarkable with a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system.
