Watch: We take a Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition to the drag strip and track battery performance

Recently, we had a chance to take a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition to the drag strip and go all out to see how the performance electric from Ford held up over repeated runs.

National Trails Raceway in Hebron, Ohio was our test site for the event, and even though it was an unusually hot evening for so late in the year, the Mach-E shouldn’t care as much about that as a gasoline-powered car.

We tracked our runs and provide some real world data to see if Ford’s claims of performance can be matched. Give it as watch and let us know how we did!

(Editor’s note: The car was lent to us by Rick Ricart, who is the president of an automotive dealership group. This was his personal car and not a dealership demo car, or a car that a customer hasn’t taken delivery of yet. We also ran with the air conditioning on for nearly all of our runs because it was hot. We would have liked to have started with a higher state of charge, but there are no DCFCs in the middle of nowhere Ohio.)
