Ford will start delivering the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E to U.S. customers this month and ahead of its arrival we’re learning some new things about the all-electric SUV.
Official EPA Range
Ford says it’s completed the United States Environmental Protection Agency certification and range labeling processes for several variants of the all-electric 2021 Mustang Mach-E.
The premium extended-range rear-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E meets its targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles, while the extended-range all-wheel-drive model meets its targeted EPA-estimated 270-mile range. Standard-range rear-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E meets its targeted EPA-estimated range of 230-mile, while the standard-range all-wheel-drive model exceeds its 210 miles of targeted range, with an EPA-estimated range of 211 miles.
“This completion comes at a perfect time as the Mustang Mach-E is gearing up to take on the open road,” said Darren Palmer, global director, Battery Electric Vehicles, Ford Motor Company.
The California Route 1 has a targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles1 which will be confirmed once EPA officials complete their tests.
Mach-E GT Performance Edition
Ford is also adding a GT Performance Edition to the lineup, targeting a zero to 60 time of 3.5 seconds. Pumping out 480-horsepower and 634 lb.-ft. of torque, the 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.
“We already pushed the envelope by creating an electric vehicle with the pony badge, so it’s only natural that we push it even further,” said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. “Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition not only gives you the added performance you expect from the GT name, but accentuates the thrill with the responsiveness of an all-electric powertrain.”
The GT Performance Edition features 19-inch front brakes with red-painted Brembo calipers as well as 20-inch machined-face Ebony Black-painted pockets paired with 245/45R20 Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide damping that helps to improve handling performance.
Both the Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition will be available in signature Mustang colors including Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat, Dark Matter Gray Metallic, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Star White Metallic Tri-Coat, Grabber Blue Metallic, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver Metallic and Space White Metallic.
If you’ve already reserved the Mach-E GT, you’ll have the opportunity to add the Performance Edition package when you place your order next spring. Both GT trims will be available late next summer.
