No later than this weekend Long Beach, California will host the 34th Annual Toyota GP, a show during which we can assist the debut of 2 new electric vehicles. Although the idea of an electric Mustang or electric Shelby Cobra is not very well seen, HST International together with the design company Tjaarda developed a pair of new zero emissions models also named Tjaarda EVX Mustang and HST Shelby Cobra EVX.
Their electric motors use lithium iron phosphate battery packs which are developed by K2 Energy Solution. With 1,355NM of torque at zero and an output of 300hp, both cars can reach 60mph in less than four seconds and can be driven over 100 miles on a single charge. Charging the batteries takes about eight hours with 110 volt outlet and just over three hours with a 220 volt plug.
The cars have been tested and as a result the Tjaards EVX Mustang can reach 60mph in 3.9 seconds being capable of a top speed of 120mph while the HST Shelby Cobra EVX does a little better, reaching 60mph in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 150mphwith a range of 120 miles. Prices start from $80,000 for the Mustang and from $125,000 for the Cobra.
