Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Range Confirmed

ford mustang mach e gt range confirmed

The range numbers are out for Ford’s highest-performance Mustang Mach-E.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT (say that five times fast) and Mach-E GT Performance Edition have maximum ranges of 270 and 260 miles, respectively.

Not bad for an EV that Ford promised will hit 60 mph from a dead stop in 3.5 seconds, thanks in part to 634 lb-ft of torque.

It won’t be cheap speed, however — the GT starts at $59,900 and the Performance Edition at an eye-popping $64,900, although both will qualify for $7,500 in federal EV incentives.

We’ve driven the “regular” Mach-E and found it to be quite quick. Obviously, the GT will be even quicker, and it won’t sacrifice much in range.

Maybe EVs have a future after all?

      "I would miss the V8 noises." Since this is supposed to be a family car, Just give your kids a few hot wheels cars. An hour into the vacation and you'll have your fill. LOL

    Little too pricey for my budget but then so is the Tesla. I am less interested in what a vehicle will do 0 to 60 just so long as the vehicle has enough acceleration to get on the interstate and pass vehicles safely--I don't plan on street racing. It would take a lot of driving to justify paying over 60k to save money on gas and the few repairs and regular maintenance that an ICE vehicle has. Unless you really got to have this vehicle more of wants than needs this is less for the average go and more for those who want the latest and greatest and have the money to spend. With the exception of a few models Ford, GM, and Stellantis vehicles are more for the well off and less for the average Joe. I am interested in the hybrid Maverick but I will wait a few years till Ford irons out any of the bugs.

    An electric vehicle loses, on average, 2% of its range annually. Battery degradation is inevitable and that convenient fast charging just accelerates the process. Weather extremes, especially heat, also makes it worse. Despite what anyone will tell you, whatever anecdotal, unscientific claims are made, you can take that 2% figure to the bank. Oddly enough I've noticed that my ICE vehicles experience improved range as they break in. And after 10 years your range will be about the same or maybe a little bit better. But in an EV, after 10 years you’ll be looking for a charger sooner because you’ll have 20% less range and your 270 mile Mustang Mach-E will drop to 200-220 miles. Your range will go from merely adequate to marginal. Too bad, i think the Mach-E is he best looking Mustang, more upright and usable interior space, better visibility and the process of merely getting in and out of the car has got to be much less of a chore. I think the Mach-E is more like the original Mustang than the current gas powered Mustang with its terrible space utilization, lousy visibility, cramped interior and bloated proportions.

      @28-Cars-Later - That is true. No logic required. I read that the majority of buyers don't even research financing options.

    Agree and the Mustang Mach-E is one of the better looking EVs and probably much better quality and better built than Teslas. If you do above average driving (above average mileage) and take shorter trips and have a home charging unit then I could see the benefit. I drive so little now that a less expensive hybrid or slightly used vehicle makes more sense. A used Nissan Leaf would be better for me in that I would use it for commuting and short trips. I live in a colder climate where it snows and the Summers are hot and the battery would need charging more often.
