The Ford Bronco of the future is electric

I’ve seen the Ford Bronco of the future people and it’s all-electric. This isn’t the classic Ford Bronco that I dreamed of owning when I was twelve years old. This is the future Ford Bronco that I dream of owning now. That’s right, the car is back, and it just got a lot more green (and a lot more luxurious). Zero Labs , an electric automotive company, recently showed off a souped up sustainable version of the SUV that runs 100 percent on electricity and it is stunning.

Zero Labs’s car, available in a limited edition batch of 150, is based on the 1966-77 model and retains much of the car’s charms including the oversized boxy build, big headlights, and manual gear control. Pretty much everything else is different, in a good way.

The silvery car is made from carbon fiber and has more than 10,000 original parts, according to Designboom. The inside looks like it was stripped from a minimalist hotel and retrofitted into a car. The car sports walnut or bamboo interior finishes with leather (or vegan leather) seats. the gear shifter is sleekly built from chromed aluminum, giving every part of the Bronco a luxurious touch. The car has a 70 kWh battery that keeps it humming for 190 miles, which is plenty of leeway to take the thing offloading (if you can bear to get it dirty). The utility car of the past will now be remade to become the luxury car of the future.

“They are designed to be low maintenance, environment-friendly, at superior luxury and refinement. Our goal is to offer everything you love, minus everything you hate. To be enjoyed now and well into the future.” Zero Labs
