Ford has officially opened the order books for the 2021 Mach-e GT in the United Kingdom. The electric crossover offers sports car-like performance and has more thrust than any other street-legal vehicle made by the Blue Oval. Pricing kicks off at £67,225 ($93,409), and deliveries will start later in 2021.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-e GT boasts a dual-motor set-up, with an 88 kWh battery powering the zero-emission powertrain that develops a combined 487 PS (480 HP / 358 kW) and 860 Nm (634 lb-ft) of torque. The latter number is almost 15% higher than in the GT supercar, and helps it hit 100 kph (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds.
With the battery fully juiced up, the Mustang Mach-e GT can travel for up to 500 km (310 miles) on the WLTP cycle. Should owners find a 150 kW charger, then they could add ~100 km (~60 miles) of range in around 10 minutes, and charge it from 10 to 80% in around 45 minutes.
The MagneRide adaptive suspension helps it on the go, while bringing it to a full stop are the Brembo high-performance brakes. Moreover, a new ‘Untamed Plus’ driving mode helps those holding the wheel balance the powertrain output on the track for “lap time consistency”, according to Ford, while simultaneously adjusting the traction and stability control.
Available in the exclusive Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange colors, the Mustang Mach-e GT sits on 20-inch wheels, and gets unique exterior features that help it differentiate from the usual versions.
Inside, it has front sports seats, 15.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, B&O audio, fake leather upholstery, and handsfree tailgate, joined by the adaptive cruise control with stop & go and lane centering, lane keep assist, blind spot assist, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, and active park assist. The panoramic glass roof is optional, the automaker states.
