Ford will open the order books for the hotter versions of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E on April 28. The high-performance Mach-E GT starts at $61,600 and features two electric motors producing 480 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque combined. If that’s not enough, the Mach-E GT Performance Edition bumps torque output to 634 lb-ft, cutting 0 to 60 mph time to 3.5 seconds versus the standard GT’s 3.8 seconds. That comes with a sizable price bump, though, because the Mach-E GT Performance Edition costs $66,000.
The Mustang Mach-E GT is distinguished from standard models with 20-inch alloy wheels shod in 245/45R20 all-season tires, red brake calipers, larger 385-mm front and 316 — mm rear brake pads, a nine-speaker B&O Sound audio system, multicolor interior ambient lighting, and front sport seats with copper metallic stitching and piping. The Mustang Mach-e GT Performance Edition adds summer tires, MagneRide magnetic suspension, and Brembo front brakes. However, the additional performance comes at the cost of overall driving range because Ford expects the Performance Edition to only get a 235-mile EPA rating on a charge. The standard Mach-E GT should be able to travel 250 miles before needing to recharge.
All Mach-E GT and Mach-E GT Performance models with the Ford Co-Pilot 360 Active 2.0 package will be available with BlueCruise, which enables hands-free semi-autonomous driving over 100,000 miles of roads.
