1967 Mustang meets Tesla: Aviar Motors all-electric muscle car

The retro craze is making it to the electric vehicle space and Russian EV startup Aviar Motors is jumping on board with an all-electric 1967 Mustang fastback with a Tesla-inspired interior.

It’s called the R67 and Aviar describes it as “the first electric muscle car with incredible acceleration dynamics and a high level of comfort.”

They claim that they managed to fit an impressive 100 kWh battery pack in a relatively small aluminum and carbon fiber chassis based on the 1967 Mustang fastback.

It enables some impressive performance, according to the company.

Aviar Motors claims 507 km of range (315 miles), 840 hp, 250 km/h (155 mph) top speed, and a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration in just 2.2 seconds.

It is also equipped a sensor suite to enable “advanced driver assistance capabilities designed to ensure safety and comfort.”

This week, the company released new images of the Aviar R67:

The interior is heavily inspired by the Tesla Model S with a similar large vertical touchscreen in the center of the dashboard:

While Aviar Motors pushed some new press content this week, they didn’t release any pricing information nor timeline to production.

They are not the only ones looking to bring back old Mustang models as all-electric vehicles.

Last month, a British EV startup unveiled a stunning all-electric 1960’s Mustangs aimed at series production.
