While 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E deliveries have already begun, we’re still anxiously awaiting the performance version of the electric crossover – the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, which is currently scheduled to launch later this summer. And when it does, the Mach-E GT will come with a very unique feature – a backlit pony logo.
From what we know, this will be the very first illuminated emblem on a Ford vehicle, and it will only be available on the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, according to Ford spokesperson Emma Berg. It’s also certain to make the Mach-E GT stand out even more than the regular Mach-E, particularly at night.
Ford says that the Mach-E GT will produce 480 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, which will enable it to do 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. Meanwhile, the GT Performance Edition, which produces 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque, will accelerate to 60 miles-per-hour from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds. The Performance Edition delivers more torque by drawing more power from its battery pack and targets an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles -slightly less than the Mach-E GT’s projected range of 250 miles.
Both the GT and GT Performance Edition put that power to the ground using Ford’s electric all-wheel-drive (eAWD) system. The GT comes equipped with 20-inch cast-aluminum wheels with aero covers, while the Performance Edition wears 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted wheels wrapped with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide dampers.
Inside the cabin, the Mach-E GT comes with Black Onyx ActiveX seats with Miko inserts and copper metallic stitching and piping. The Performance Edition features Performance Gray ActiveX seats with metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated reflective inserts and a unique aluminum appliqué for the instrument panel.
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.
