And you though a Shelby or Roush stretched the pocketbook!

A former Ford engineer wants to sell you the first electric Mustang for just a little over $75,000.

Kurt Neutgens is founder of Plug-In Motors. The electric engineer started the company by taking a stock Mustang, pulling the engine out, adding 2450 batteries, and adding an electric engine to convert the car to run of volts instead of gasoline.

The good news about the E-Stang is that at the current average cost of household electricity around the country, it only cost about $2.30 to run the car for 100 miles.

The bad news is that the car has a range of only about 80 miles, and that it takes 11 hours to recharge it when plugged into a standard household 110 volt outlet.

Here’s the E-Stangs specs:

Min Range Mustang (85 miles per charge @ 55 mph) - $75,900
0 to 60 - 5.6 Sec or 6.6 Sec
Top Speed - 85mph or 105 mph
Battery Life (miles until 80% of initial range) - 200,000 miles
Fuel Savings/100,000 miles ($4/gal) - $20,772
Recharge Time 110V/15Amps - 11 hours
Recharge Time 220V/80Amps - 1.1 hours

Max Range Mustang (200 miles per charge @ 55 mph) - $125,900
0 to 60 - 8 Sec or 9.5 Sec
Top Speed - 85mph or 105 mph
Battery Life (est. miles until 80% of initial range) - 350,000 miles
Fuel Savings/100,000 miles ($4/gal) - $20,772
