ECD Auto Design Electrifies Classic Mustangs, Pioneering EV Vintage Performance

KISSIMMEE, Fla., May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ECD Auto Design, the world’s largest Land Rover and Jaguar restoration company known for its custom luxury builds, including bespoke Defenders, Range Rovers and E-Types, proudly announces the integration of cutting-edge EV powertrains into its Mustang Fastback and Convertible models.

Following the recent announcement of ECD Auto Design’s product expansion into the American muscle car market, this significant move emphasizes the company's commitment to innovation, sustainability and ultimately customization options.

Built upon ECD's legacy of precision and excellence, the classic Ford Mustang line will now offer electric powertrain options, crafted within ECD’s state-of-the-art 100,000 square foot facility. Each vehicle will exemplify ECD's dedication to pushing the boundaries of automotive design. In line with ECD's world renown customization model, every classic Mustang will offer a range of powertrain configurations, allowing customers to tailor their vehicles to their preferences.

The electric powertrains will be based off ECD’s second generation 300 HP with direct drive units and will include DC fast charging. Twin Derale high performance coolers are utilized for optimal flexibility and airflow. The range for the Mustang EV model is approximately 150 miles, fully charged.

ECD’s experience in retrofitting Land Rover Defender, Range Rover and Jaguar E-Types with EV powertrains was further enhanced into its second-generation units that will be carried over to the Mustang. The distinctive of ECD’s second generation electric powertrains include:

  • Fast Charge: high speed charging, going from 10% to 80% in less than one hour – perfect for any lifestyle.
  • Creep Mode: Facilitates slow driving when the brake is released, bringing the driver experience even closer to a traditional automatic transmission. This feature is also powerful enough to hold an ECD build at a stop on inclines.
  • Cruise Control: New electric vehicles will have standard cruise control functionality, perfectly in line with modern EV expectations.
  • All-new components: Each build will receive a brand-new, U.S.-made electric system. Plus, each component has warranties from the vendor, improving customer service time.
  • Changeable drive modes (Sport, Eco, Normal): Drivers can toggle through three new drive modes, changing the throttle pedal response, power and efficiency of the vehicle.
  • Interactive touchscreen display: A true connection with the vehicle, the cutting-edge display will place real time data at the driver’s fingers, including accurate charge information and mileage range until empty.

Elliot Humble, Chief Technology Officer for ECD Auto Design states, “We’re proud to introduce EV technology to our iconic American Mustang models. Our team at ECD is dedicated to meticulously crafting each classic Mustang, ensuring they embody both performance and sustainability.”
