Ford is extending the Mustang Mach-E offering with for Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition models. The Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition are set to accentuate the thrill of the GT name with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain this fall.
Mustang Mach-E GT features electric all-wheel-drive and permanent magnetic dual motors, including an upgraded secondary electric motor that powers the front wheels for a combined power output of 480 peak horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. It aims for a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds while targeting an EPA-estimated 250 miles of range.
In addition to three drive experiences that is offered on the Mustang Mach-E, Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition introduce Unbridled Extend, a track- and closed-course-only take on Unbridled mode that balances power output for lap time consistency. The system provides more performance-oriented traction and stability control tuned specifically for track use – including an increase in interior sound.
Mustang Mach-E GT features 20-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with high-gloss black-painted pockets and aero covers with 245/45R20 Continental all-season tires. Mach-E GT also gets red-painted performance brake calipers, plus 385-millimeter ventilated front rotors and 316-millimeter solid rear rotors.
The Mustang Mach-E GT interior features multi-color ambient lighting, front door scuff plates with metal inserts with pony graphic and GT lettering, and an aluminum appliqué instrument panel. Sport-style front seats feature Black Onyx ActiveX™ material with Miko® insert, copper metallic stitching and copper metallic accent piping.

“With Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, we’re pushing the boundaries of what an electric vehicle can offer,” said Dave Pericak, vehicle program director. “These Mustang Mach-E models not only give customers the added capability expected from the GT name, but the responsiveness of their electric powertrains will ensure they have a thrilling experience behind the wheel.”
Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition adds some ‘oomph’
With a 0-60 mph time of 3.5 seconds, the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition joins the Mustang Mach-E GT stable, making an already-fast electric pony even quicker. Pumping out 480 horsepower and 634 lb.-ft. of torque – the same horsepower as the Mustang Mach 1 performance coupe but with 214 lb.-ft. additional torque – Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition delivers more torque, grip and better handling by drawing more power from its battery pack, and targets an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles.
Offering more than just added “oomph,” Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition features sportier components including 385-millimeter front rotors with red-painted Brembo®-branded calipers, as well as 20-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with high-gloss Ebony Black-painted pockets paired with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires – unique to Mustang Mach-E and which enabled engineers to calibrate the motors for increased torque – as well as MagneRide® Damping System to help improve handling performance.
Its interior features Ford Performance front seats in Performance Gray ActiveX Seating Material plus unique Miko perforated reflective insert and metallic stitching.
