- ford has announced that the 2021 mustang mach-e gt and gt performance edition will make more power than originally estimated.
- the mach-e gt makes 480 horsepower (up 21) and 600 lb-ft of torque, while the gt performance edition has the same power, but more torque at 634 lb-ft.
- ford claims that the standard mustang mach-e gt will launch to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, with the gt performance edition reaching that speed in 3.5 seconds.
like the gas-powered ford mustang coupe and convertible, the mustang mach-e electric crossover will have a higher-performance gt model in its lineup, which will look more aggressive, and it'll make more power than initially claimed. a gt performance edition will also be available with more torque, and ford claims it'll launch to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
the mustang mach-e gt is equipped with an 88.0-kwh battery pack and two electric motors, one on each axle, sending power to all four wheels. the result is 480 horsepower (up 21 from ford's initial claim) and 600 lb-ft of torque, and ford claims it'll reach 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. the performance edition also makes 480 ponies, but it provides more torque (634 lb-ft), and it's expected to be quicker. ford also estimates that the standard gt will travel 250 miles on a single charge and the performance edition will reach 235 miles.
mustang mach-e gts will look more aggressive, too, with a carbonized gray grille, red-painted brembo brakes, 20-inch black wheels, and gt badging. the performance edition gets special badges, unique 20-inch wheels wrapped in pirelli summer tires (the standard gt comes with all-season rubber), ford performance seats with metallic stitching, an aluminum instrument panel, and standard magnetorheological dampers.
the 2021 ford mustang mach-e gt and gt performance edition will be available at the end of the summer, and orders open in the spring. customers who have already reserved the mach-e gt will have the opportunity to switch to the performance edition, ford says.
