Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition revealed

Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition revealed

The stock Mach-E GT hasn’t even hit the streets yet but Ford is already giving us a special edition. A Performance Edition to be exact.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is being marketed as the electric equivalent of the Shelby GT500. It has a similar 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds, a full half second faster than the stock Mach-E GT.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition has the equivalent of 480 hp and 634 lb-ft of torque to achieve those numbers. That’s 21 hp and 22 lb-ft of torque more than the standard GT. It’s also 280 hp less than the GT500 but 9 more torques.

“We already pushed the envelope by creating an electric vehicle with the pony badge, so it’s only natural that we push it even further,” Darren Palmer, Ford’s global director of battery electric vehicles, said in a statement.

“Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition not only gives you the added performance you expect from the GT name, but accentuates the thrill with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain.”

Performance Edition

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition will use the same 88 kWh battery pack as the GT so will inevitably fall slightly short on range. It is estimated that this edition will achieve 235 miles between charges rather than the 250 of the GT.

That’s not such a shortfall considering the performance on tap.

As well as more power, the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition also has bigger brakes. Larger 19 inch Brembo units up front in a red colour inside 20 inch black wheels and Pirelli summer tires should help keep things under control.

The grille is also new, with a new Carbonized Gray colour. Finally, performance-tuned Magneride suspension should help keep you comfortable while on the road.

Inside, there are Ford Performance seats, new upholstery elements and aluminium trim throughout the cabin to make this model stand out.

Ford Mustang Mach-E

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the most hotly-anticipated cars of the century and has create a buzz few other new cars have managed. From everything we have seen, heard and read, the Ford Mustang Mach-E will actually deliver, if not exceed that expectation.

The stock Ford Mustang Mach-E looks great and will be ideal for those who want a range of 300 miles. The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is more performance oriented and will delight those who want to balance performance with range.

This new Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition still gets good range but is now one of the fastest standard EVs around!
