Tesla and Ford are two automotive brands from the United States. The former is known for producing fast and expensive electric vehicles, whereas the latter wishes to concentrate on SUVs and trucks in North America. The Blue Oval, on the other hand, only has one coupe in its lineup: the Mustang. After all, it is still the world’s best-selling sports car, with the United States accounting for 70% of total global sales.
At first glance, a Tesla-based all-electric Ford Mustang concept screams America, but this one is from Aviar Motors, a Russian company.
This electrified Mustang, dubbed the Aviar R67, appeals to those who aren’t fans of the Mustang Mach-E electric crossover. The design tends to bring back to the original two-seater Mustang concept from 1962, with clean lines, tri-bar taillights, and the pony car’s signature wide stance.
The Aviar R67, on the other hand, will be built on a Tesla Model S platform. The lightweight composite body elements are mounted on aluminum battery mounting and side members from the Model S. More importantly, it is propelled by two electric motors that are supplied by a 100 kWh battery. According to Aviar Motors, it will be compatible with Tesla superchargers.
The interior of the Aviar R67 is also quite familiar. According to the renderings provided by Aviar Motors, Tesla elements such as the vertical infotainment system are definitely present, while the Mustang’s signature round air-conditioning vents have made their way into this concept.
An R67 prototype is already in the works, with 840 electrified horsepower (618 kilowatts) and a 0-62 mph time of 2.2 seconds. The maximum range will be 507 kilometers (315 miles). The price has not been disclosed at this time, but the announced specifications can be found in the Press Release section below.
