- the epa released range estimates for the mustang mach-e gt and gt performance edition—the former goes 270 miles on a charge while the latter can travel 260 miles.
- the gt and gt performance edition both have 480 horsepower and all-wheel drive.
- deliveries of the gt and gt performance begin in the fall, with prices for the gt starting at $61,000.
with 480 horsepower and all-wheel drive, the top-of-the-line mustang mach-e gt claims to have the performance to live up to its iconic namesake. and now that the epa has released estimates for both the gt and the gt performance edition models, we know that the higher-performance electric suv's range does not suffer massively compared to the mustang mach-e's less powerful variants.
the epa estimates the range of the gt at 270 miles, while the gt performance edition, which has an extra 34 pound-feet of torque for a total of 634 pound-feet, will go 260 miles on a charge. the gt and gt performance edition are only available with the 88.0-kwh extended range (er) battery and both have two electric motors, one on each axle, providing all-wheel drive.
these estimates are on the higher end among mach-e trim levels, with the gt’s 270 miles matching the range of the premium er awd. although the sporty mach-e models can’t compete with the 305-mile range of the california route 1 (which uses the er rwd setup), both the gt and performance edition can travel significantly further than any mach-e equipped with the 68.0-kwh standard range battery, which is good for 211 miles of range with awd and 230 miles of range with rwd.
the mach-e’s closest rival is the tesla model y performance, which also utilizes a dual-motor awd arrangement. the model y performance’s motors make around 470 hp combined, shooting the egg-shaped crossover to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds in car and driver testing. the model y performance also goes further on a charge than the mach-e, with an epa-rated 303 miles of range.
the mustang mach-e gt starts at $61,000, about $1000 less than the model y performance, and the gt performance edition costs an additional $5,000. deliveries begin in the fall, and ford says that more than half of the orders for the mach-e gt so far have been for the performance edition.
