Just as we thought that the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT would be the fastest version of the new electric SUV, the carmaker announced a new, even more powerful variant.
The new Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is the latest addition to the range, offering 480 HP and 634 lb-ft (860 Nm) of torque, an increase of 21 HP and 22 lb-ft over the standard GT model.
Ford targets a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds for the new Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, as well as an EPA-estimated driving range of 235 miles (378 km). The battery pack is the same 88 kWh unit as the standard GT.
The new Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition offers “more than just added ‘oomph’”, according to Ford, as it features bigger 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo calipers, a set of 20-inch machined-face wheels shod in Pirelli summer tires, and MagneRide adaptive dampers which further sharpen up the handling.
In addition, the fastest variant of the Mustang Mach-E comes with front Ford Performance seats dressed in what the company calls ‘Performance Gray ActiveX’ material with metallic stitching and unique Miko perforated and reflective inserts, while the instrument panel features a unique aluminum applique.
Ford will offer the new Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition in signature color options, 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 get the opportunity to add the Performance Edition package in the spring of 2021. The new Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition will hit the market late next summer, while prospective customers can reserve theirs through Ford’s website.
