British car maker Charge Cars will continue in their mission to take the US by storm when the ’67 makes it’s public debut and goes on display at the 2022 LA Auto Show. Running from November 18th – 27th, the show will give classic car fans and performance enthusiasts a chance to see the iconic lines that make up the ’67.
Charge Cars will be showcasing the Satin Kaynite Blue model, which is quite beautiful, at the Auto Show after it received a very positive reception last month during it’s reveal to the media. Listed as one of the ‘must see’ attractions, the ’67 will be located in the atrium of the West Hall at the LA Convention Center.
On the production side, the ’67 is being limited to 499 vehicles. Along with being a limited run, it’s being hand built in London. The Charge Cars team is carefully assembling the lightweight carbon fiber body panels over the brand new steel body shell. The shell will accommodate advanced electrification that provides 1120 lb-ft of torque and propels the ’67 from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds. The electronics also allow the advanced 4iWD torque vectoring technology as well as a number of important driver aids. There is also a fully connected driver interface as part of the all new interior design that includes keyless access and a premium, immersive sound system.
Members of the Charge Cars team consist of experienced automotive designers and engineers who bring experience across multiple sectors to develop and assemble the cars using core components from technology partner Elements Auto, a division of Arrival. There will be members of the team present at the Auto Show to discuss the ’67 with show visitors.
