Meet The Russian Electric Mustang With 840 HP, AWD

DEC 13 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 16

And … here’s another Russian EV concept taking cues from an old-school American icon.

As some of you may remember, Russian gun manufacturer Kalashnikov came forth with the prototype of all prototypes. An upcoming electric car with the facade of a vintage American vehicle. Well, that seems to be becoming more popular these days, as we now have another Russian company that wants to bring an all-electric Ford Mustang to market ahead of Ford itself. However, this pony is based on a 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback.

The automaker in question here is known as Aviar. While its concept and specs can surely be called “vaporware” at this point in the game, it’s still exciting, nonetheless. The Aviar electric car could offer a 2.2-second 60-mph sprint, a top speed of 155 mph, 840 horsepower, and a whopping 315 miles of range. It will get its range from two electric motors and a 100-kWh battery pack. It seems these folks have taken a very close look at the Tesla Model S.

In order to get so much range and power out of the configuration, Aviar has plans to build its car with only carbon fiber and aluminum. The company also boasts an air suspension that would work to adjust ride height by up to 2.9 inches. Additionally, the car will feature a 17-inch touch screen. So, we’re talking about a spot-on-spec Tesla vehicle with a retro-Mustang body. Interestingly, the company says it will have built-in exhaust notes from a Shelby GT500. Hmm …

While these Russian concepts are very intriguing, we have no idea how and if they will ever come to market.

As always, share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.

There’s no way the Mustang in that photograph pulls 0-60 in 2.2 seconds.

“Would you believe….. 96.5 km in 2.2?”

Not with those tires………lmao

We just found the company’s original rendering and replaced the lead image. That was a 1967 Mustang that we used since we didn’t have the original image.

Ron Swanson's Mustache

The specs claimed by any Russian organization are basically the equivalent of someone claiming they have a supermodel girlfriend who lives in Canada.

Well, I do, so this is real!

They could be building warheads instead. This is better. Go Russian Mustang guys!

If anyone can get the job done it’s the Russian’s, Go Russia,

I wonder if Ford will have a cow about this.

…Ken Block… Gymkhana-E

I kind of like these resto-mod/conversion concepts. The interpretation is nicely realized. We saw that vintage E-type Jag get the electro-treatment several months ago, so I can’t see why it wouldn’t work in a Mustang. Or facsimile of such. But please… no fake sound. Sure, internal combustion has been the soundtrack of power for decades, but fake is fake. Just embrace the whine. 😉

If you haven’t seen it yet, look on YouTube for the zombie222 from bloodshed motors.

Just checked it out… that thing is a beast!

Folks, please … the Kalashnikov study is NOT based on any American car, the IZH-2125 was and is a very Russian car that nobody in his right mind would confuse with an American vehicle.

Good stuff! I noted the mention on their VKontakte account that an e-mower is also mentioned as being in the works, although without a rendering proffered, this is much harder to believe.
