American automotive giant Ford has recently announced the New Mustang Mach-E. The automobile company will start taking orders for the GT and GT Performance variants of its first electric Mustang.
The Mustang Mach-E, which will also include a track- and closed-course-only mode, starting at $US59,900.The vehicle aims for zero to 60 in 3.8 seconds, Ford says but has more range. Baking in the tax credit, that car comes within shouting distance of $50,000.
The company gives 480 horsepower with 600 pound-feet of torque on the Mach-E GT and 634 pound-feet on the Performance Edition. That will take 0-60 MPH in 3.8 seconds and 3.5 seconds, respectively. This will be enough to keep up with Tesla’s $62,190 Model Y Performance. However, the Model Y Performance can go 315 miles on a charge, compared to 250 and 235 miles for the GT and Performance Edition, respectively.
The new GT models include a light-up pony logo on the front grille with a GT badge around the back and sewn into the center console. They also come with red Brembo brake calipers and a cyber orange paint option. The Performance Edition gets its own special badging along with 20-inch wheels, Pirelli tires, Ford Performance seats, an aluminum instrument panel and standard magnetorheological dampers, presumably to allow for more fine-tuned ride performance.
