Ford’s 480HP Performance Edition Mustang Mach-E GT Is Its Fastest EV Yet

Dec 1, 2020

When Ford debuted the Mustang Mach-E SUV, it stirred up quite the scandal amongst the automotive community. For starters, it expanded its iconic pony car line for the first time in 55 years to include — of all things — an SUV. And to make matters worse, the Detroit-based automaker electrified the thing.

However, now that the dust has settled, Ford is proving just how capable its genre-bending car can be. With the announcement of the Mach-E GT Performance Edition comes an electric SUV that’ll do 0-60mph in just 3.5s — a figure almost on par with the legendary Shelby GT500’s 3.3s sprint. In order to deliver such a time, Ford had to give the platform a boost in torque. So, while the standard Mach-E GT already makes an impressive 600lb-ft of torque, the Performance Edition climbs ever-higher to 634lb-ft of torque. But that’s not all — Ford also gave the SUV a series of aesthetic updates. It now wears red 19-inch Brembo brake calipers, as well as some 20-inch wheels finished in Ebony Black and a front grille decked out in Carbonized Gray. Inside, it gets Ford Performance seats upholstered in gray ActiveX with metallic stitching. Available Spring 2021, prices on the 480-horsepower SUV have yet to be announced.
