Since ending its manufacturing operations there a few years ago, Ford has been on a literal product offensive in the South American country, launching an array of new models including the Ford Territory SUV, The Ford F-150 pickup, the Ford Transit alongside its Ford Pro commercial business, and the all-new Ford Ranger, which has received strong interest from the start as The Blue Oval recently expanded that model’s lineup. Now, a couple of weeks after FoMoCo opened its first dedicated EV facility in Brazil, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has officially gone on sale, too.
In Brazil, the Ford Mustang Mach-E will only be sold in one guise, at least for now – the top of the line GT Performance Edition. It’s the very first all-electric vehicle on sale in that particular market, however, which is certainly notable. The GT Performance Edition is the quickest version of the Mach-E available, accelerating from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds.
Meanwhile, Ford has partnered with EZVolt – the largest private charging network in Brazil – to offer Mach-E customers over 800 charging stops in 15 states, as well as free charging at those sites for one year or up to 950 kW. Customers can also purchase wallbox chargers with either 7 kW or 11 kW outputs to make charging at home easy to do. The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance is available to purchase now with an MSRP of R$486,000 ($96,572 USD).
“The Mustang Mach-E is a product differentiated from everything that exists on the market today, both for what it delivers from the point of view of consumer experience and versatility and performance,” said Marcel Bueno, director of Marketing at Ford South America. “It is a great milestone in the electrification of our line, a sports vehicle with space for the family and, as we say, the only electric that is a Mustang.”
