With the regular 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E in production and arriving at dealerships this month, it’s also worth noting that it won’t be long before the Mach-E GT launches as well. Those that want the ultimate version of this ultimate all-electric crossover will be able to opt for the Mach-E GT Performance Edition, and now Ford has given us all the juicy details about this exciting package.
Ford says the Performance Edition will do 0-60 in a targeted 3.5 seconds. Pumping out 480 horsepower (358 kilowatts) and 634 pound-feet of torque (860 newton-meters), The Performance Edition delivers more torque, grip, and better handling by drawing more power from its battery pack and targets an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles.
“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,” said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. “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.”
The Performance Edition features a host of additional upgrades as well, including 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo calipers as well as 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted pockets paired with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide dampers.
Inside the cabin, the Performance Edition features a set of Performance Gray ActiveX material-covered front seats featuring metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated reflective inserts. The instrument panel is enhanced by a unique aluminum appliqué, while the rear of the vehicle sports a Performance Edition GT badge.
Both Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition models will be available in signature Ford Mustang colors including Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, Grabber Blue Metallic, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic, and Space White Metallic.
Customers who have already reserved the Mustang Mach-E GT will have the opportunity to add the Performance Edition package at the time of ordering in spring 2021. Both the Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition will be available late next summer.
