Tesla and Ford – two automobile brands originating in the United States The first is known for expensive electric vehicles, while the latter wants to focus more on SUVs and trucks in North America. But the Blue Oval keeps one coupe in its lineup – the Mustang. After all, it is still the best-selling sports car in the world with 70% of its total global sales coming from the United States.
Now a Tesla-based all-electric Ford Mustang concept screams America at first glance, but this one is from Aviar engines, a Russian company.
Dubbed the Aviar R67, this electrified Mustang is for those who don’t like the electric Mustang Mach-E crossover. The design is reminiscent of the original concept of the 1962 two-seater Mustang – clean lines, three-bar taillights and the wide stance for which the pony car is known.
Underneath, however, the Aviar R67 will be built on a Tesla Model S platform. Lightweight composite bodywork is mounted on aluminum parts of the Model S battery carrier and side members. Most importantly, it is powered by two electric motors powered by a 100 kWh battery. And yes, it will be compatible with Tesla superchargers.
The interior of the Aviar R67 is also quite familiar. Based on renderings provided by Aviar Motors, the Tesla elements are definitely there, such as the vertical infotainment system, while Mustang’s signature round air conditioning vents have transcended their way into this concept.
An R67 prototype is already underway, boasting 840 electrified horsepower (618 kilowatts) and a 0-62 mph time of just 2.2 seconds. The range will be 507 kilometers (315 miles).
