GT and GT Performance Edition versions of the Mustang Mach-E are finally eligible for an introductory price in the United States. Count less than $70,000 for these muscular versions with solid performance.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has been occupying a media space in the electric vehicle space for more than a year. Mustang rejected the brand’s vehicle with sports versions, the Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition, which were detailed in September and December 2020, respectively.
As a reminder, the Mustang Mach-E GT has all-wheel drive and 480 hp for a torque of 813 Nm. That’s enough to slow it down from 0 to 100 km/h in a 3.8-second range. Add to this the 20-inch wheels and a 400-mile range, according to the EPA certification cycle used mostly in the United States.
Mustang Mach-E GT vs Tesla Model Y: match
In 2021, Ford is introducing a new mode called “Unbridled Extend” designed specifically for driving on the track. It further optimizes performance. And above all, the American manufacturer took the opportunity to reveal the price of this model, which has been kept a secret until now.
The Mustang Mach-E GT is thus marketed across the Atlantic for $59,990, placing it as a competitor to the Tesla Model Y in the Performance version. As a reminder, this iteration costs 490 kilometers (90 kilometers more than the GT version) and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
That’s why the Tesla Model Y is a little faster to start, a little more durable, but also a little more expensive at $1,000. Which, in short, does not change anything at this price. On paper, the Tesla model therefore offers the best configuration.
Tesla Model Y also has the advantage of combining Autopilot and all autonomous driving features developed by Elon Musk’s firm, which has made a good start in this field. Even if Ford wants to keep up with the new “Bluecruise” system, which still has everything to prove.
The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition is priced at $64,900 for increased power to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds: 480 hp and 860 Nm of torque. Ford promises better grip and handling, but also a slightly lower range of 380 kilometers.
Deliveries of the two models will begin in the fall of 2021. Regarding France, the Ford site does not specify any date.
