2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition: Live Gallery

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition were revealed back in April as the high-performance versions of the existing Ford Mustang Mach-E. Since then, the GT models have crushed EPA estimates, served as the basis for a pilot police vehicle, and earned universally stellar reviews. Recently, Ford Authority got an up close look at the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition at the 2021 SEMA Show, where it was part of Ford’s official display.

This 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition features Cyber Orange exterior paint and represents the ultimate version of the all-electric crossover. The Performance Edition adds a host of additional upgrades over the regular GT, including 385-millimeter front rotors with red-painted Brembo-branded calipers, a MagneRide Damping System, and 20-inch machined-face wheels with Ebony Black-painted pockets paired with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires – which are unique to the Mach-E and enabled engineers to calibrate the vehicle’s electric motors for increased torque.

On the outside, the sporty crossover features a a Carbonized Gray grille with an illuminated pony badge and GT series badging, a hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, pony projection lamps, and black-painted side view mirror caps. Exterior color options include Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Grabber Blue Metallic, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic, and Space White Metallic.

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, as well as an instrument panel that is enhanced by a unique aluminum appliqué.

The Mach-E GT Performance Edition offers up 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque, which Ford says is good enough to propel the EV crossover from 0-60 in just 3.5 seconds. With an 88 kWh battery on board, the Mach-E GT Performance Edition provides an EPA-estimated 260 miles of range.

The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition starts out at $64,900 in the U.S. and is currently eligible for the $7,500 federal tax incentive.

    I’m sorry but that thing just doesn’t do it for me. $70,000 ?? I don’t care how fast it is. It looks like the big brother of an Escape.

    My concern when we go all electric is the day a Governor issues an evacuation notice due to a hurricane and all the cars end up on the freeway with dead batteries and nowhere to go. It will be one big parking lot, with no way to charge them. Will they have to tow them out one car at a time? With a dead battery, you could be stranded with no heat, no A/C and no way to recharge. A 260 mile range is OK if you commute from home to work every day and can just pull into your garage and plug in. Watch out for a garage fire. However, when traveling long distance, they just won’t have the number of charging stations available as we do gas pumps.

    There are many hurdles yet to cross before I will consider. How do we dispose of all these batteries? I believe it is France that has thousands of taxis that are parked and out of service. They say it is cheaper to park them rather than dispose of and replace them.

    Does a front splitter that high off of the ground really have any effect?

    I too have concerns about this vehicle and all electric vehicles. I don’t know why logic and common sense have taken a back seat to the electric fetish. Here are some of the issues.
    1. To make batteries one must mine lithium. That is a messy and fossil fuel driven process. No way around it. You have to use lots of energy to make one battery.
    2. As N. Smith identified, disposal is a huge environmental issue that nobody wants to talk about. I can’t dispose of a car battery in the landfill so what are we to do with these behemoths? It’s not like they can be completely recycled and their half life is thousands of years.
    3. The grid. Despite what some are saying, our electrical grid cannot support the demand of having millions of electric cars sucking juice along with everything else we have that requires electricity. We’ve already seen rolling blackouts and massive outages result from acts of God and tremendous demand without the addition of electric cars. The only legit way to meet the demand is to invest in nuclear as solar and wind are nice but not sustainable or reliable enough to put all our eggs in those baskets. I could see very difficult decisions being made as to what and who gets electricity.
    4. You are going to pay big time for the facade of being clean and having a reduced carbon footprint. The cost of electricity is going to skyrocket to levels that would make the price of gas look like nothing. Rates are going to go through the roof and then some and when you plug-in at one of those recharge stations scattered around the country it is going to be expensive, wicked expensive. You will find the comparison of MPG to KWG will not be close and you will be forking out tons more to drive your Tesla or MachE another 300 miles or whatever is claimed. I wish more car makers would go into this energy shift with some common sense instead of bending to the misguided fantasies of the uninformed “woke” masses that will drive us back to the stone age.
