Mustang Mach-E GT coming in 2021

Ford Mustang Mach-E GT

FORD has unveiled an uprated GT version of its Mustang Mach-E electric SUV.

Set to arrive here late next year, the Mustang Mach-E GT packs all-wheel-drive and a dual electric motor setup which results in a total output of 459bhp and a mighty 612lb ft of torque.

That results in a 0-60mph time of around 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 124mph.

Ford claims that it will return up to 310 miles of range - though presumably not while repeatedly leaning on that acceleration potential - which makes it slightly less long-legged than the regular Mach-E’s 335 miles.

Mustang Mach-E owners will benefit from five years of free access to the FordPass charging network, which now includes 155,000 charging stations across Europe.

Also included is one year of free access to Ionity's network of fast chargers... should you be able to find one in Northern Ireland.

Find a 150kW charging station, and approximately 73 miles of range can be added within 10 minutes of charging.

Stuart Rowley, president of Ford of Europe, said: "The new Mustang Mach-E GT shows what all-electric performance really looks like, but performance counts for nothing without the confidence to use it.

"Our charging initiatives mean Mustang Mach-E customers can enjoy the electrified Mustang driving experience with the knowledge that they can recharge quickly and easily across Europe."

GT upgrades include adaptive suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers and unique exterior colours.
