While much of the motoring world remains fairly apprehensive about the increasing electrification of the auto industry, there’s no denying that these electric-powered vehicles are the future. In a bid to demonstrate its EV tech and to test the waters on the public’s level of interest regarding its battery-powered wares, Ford — who is investing $11.5B in its EV’s in the coming three years — recently partnered with transportation technology giant Webasto to deliver a fully-electric, high-performance Mustang Fastback prototype.

Dubbed the Mustang Lithium, the zero-emissions concept is powered by a Phi-Power dual-core electric motor and dual power inverters drawing juice from an 800-volt Webasto battery system that together generate a whopping 900+ horsepower and a cool 1,000ft-lbs of torque. As a point of reference; Tesla’s Model S boasts a 400-volt unit. The Swiss-made electric motor transmits power through a Getrag six-speed transmission with billet internals. Other performance upgrades include blue-painted Brembo six-pot calipers, Ford Performance half shafts, Super 8.8 Torsen differential, Track Handling Pack, and strut tower brace, and lightweight 20-inch Forgeline wheels shod in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber. The interior’s also been treated to RECARO race seats, carbon fiber trim juxtaposed by electric blue accent pieces, and a custom in-dash 10.4-inch touchscreen display. Outside, the Mustang was lowered an inch and bestowed with carbon fiber side skirts, front lip (with embossed “Lithium” logo), rear diffuser, and grille surround, and the hood has been replaced with a bespoke unit with see-through polycarbonate windows, putting the Webasto batteries on full display.
