FORD REVEALS BLISTERINGLY QUICK MUSTANG MACH-E GT FOR EUROPE: NOTHING IN ITS CLASS ACCELERATES FASTER
24-SEP-2020 | COLOGNE, GERMANY



  • All-electric, 465 PS, all-wheel drive Mustang Mach-E GT sprints to the head of the pack with 3.7-second 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration as it breaks cover in Europe for the first time
  • Five years free access to FordPass Charging Network, one year free access to IONITY network to deliver complete peace of mind for Mustang Mach-E customers on the move
  • One-of-a-kind Mustang Mach-E 1400 shows true potential of electric future that Ford’s wide range of electrified powertrains is helping customers transition towards
COLOGNE, Germany, Sept. 24, 2020 – Ford today revealed for the first time in Europe the high-performance Mustang Mach-E GT that will deliver 3.7‑second 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration1 when introduced to the region in late 2021.

No other vehicle in its class can accelerate faster than the Mustang Mach-E GT, featuring a 465 PS, all-wheel drive, battery-electric powertrain for drivers ready to take full advantage of the performance benefits of all-electric driving.

Mustang Mach-E GT will be supported by an industry-leading ecosystem delivering seamless, integrated access to charging across Europe – for complete peace of mind on the move. Ford today announced Mustang Mach-E customers placing an order this year and into 2021 will receive five years of free access2 to the FordPass Charging Network that has grown by almost 25 per cent in less than one year – to now include more than 155,000 charge stations across Europe.

Mach-E customers will also receive one year of free access2 to the IONITY fast-charging network that has now established more than 270 charging stations en route to a targeted 400 by the end of this year.

The Mustang Mach-E GT made its European debut today in Rotterdam, Netherlands, as Ford continued its Go Electric roadshow with hands-on, engaging activities to help de-mystify electrification and inspire confidence in consumers about the different types of electrified powertrains available and their benefits.

“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,” said Stuart Rowley, president, Ford of Europe.

Electrifying performance

Mustang Mach-E GT delivers the spirited performance and character of the iconic Mustang sports car alongside the ability to carry five occupants in all-electric refinement. A 465 PS, dual-motor powertrain applies 830 Nm of available torque independently to the front and rear axles for even more responsive handling, and 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration equal to the Tesla Model Y. Top speed is limited to 200 km/h (124 mph).

A bespoke specification includes MagneRide adaptive suspension, 20‑inch alloy wheels, red-painted brake callipers and unique exterior colours including Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange. Inside, a 15.5-inch full HD touch display supports a next generation SYNC communication and entertainment system3 that actually learns from driver behaviours to make smart suggestions. The enhanced interior also features Ford Performance seats and a unique steering wheel with suede inserts.

Mustang Mach-E GT features as standard an 88 kWh (useable) extended-range battery for a targeted WLTP pure-electric driving range of up to 500 km (310 miles),4 supported by Intelligent Range, which more accurately predicts how much range drivers have using past driving behaviour, weather forecasts and crowdsourced data from other Mustang Mach-E vehicles.

Ford also today announced that the standard Mustang Mach-E equipped with an extended-range battery and all-wheel drive delivers 5.1-second 0-100 km/h (0‑62 mph) acceleration5 – equal to the Tesla Model Y Long Range model – and a targeted WLTP pure-electric driving range of up to 540 km (335 miles).

The company is delivering peace of mind for its all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle customers via the FordPass Charging Network – the largest network of public charging stations in Europe with approximately 30,000 stations added since October 2019.

In partnership with NewMotion, Ford customers will be able to use the FordPass app to effortlessly locate, navigate to, pay for and monitor charging at locations across 21 countries – initiating and paying for services from a single account2 for a simplified ownership experience.

Ford is also a founder member and shareholder in the IONITY consortium – delivering high-power charging stations along motorway routes and at key European locations. The FordPass Charging Network and IONITY initiatives could be particularly beneficial to electrified vehicle owners who do not have the facility for a private charge point at home or at work.

Charging with up to 150 kW at an IONITY station, Mustang Mach-E in extended-range battery, rear-wheel drive configuration is estimated to add an average of 119 km (73 miles) driving range within approximately 10 minutes of charging6 and has a targeted WLTP pure-electric driving range of up to 610 km (379 miles).

No one-size-fits-all solution

Ford believes a broad range of electrified powertrain solutions is the most effective path to a more energy-efficient future for drivers. Ford is introducing 17 new electrified models to the region by the end of next year.

Earlier this year the company called on governments, industries and institutions to support the push for electrification with faster expansion of public charging infrastructures. In the meantime, Ford’s diverse range of hybrid vehicles is helping greater numbers of customers save fuel costs, support clean air initiatives and transition to electrification with confidence.

Seventy-five per cent of Puma models sold up to August this year are equipped with a Ford EcoBoost 48-volt mild hybrid powertrain. Fifty-five per cent of new Kuga sales in the same period have been Kuga Plug-In Hybrid models.

A U.K. trial of 20 Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid vans covering more than 240,000 km (150,000 miles) found that 75 per cent of the fleet’s mileage in Central London was completed using pure electric power – dramatically reducing tailpipe emissions in the inner city.

Full hybrid variants of the Ford S-MAX and Galaxy models are joining the Mondeo Hybrid early next year, following a €42 million investment in Ford’s Valencia manufacturing plant, Spain – including a state-of-the-art battery assembly facility.

“The sales speak for themselves. We believe customers are finding mild hybrid, full hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains fit seamlessly with their lifestyles, and that’s why we’re seeing really encouraging take-up of our electrified models,” Rowley said.

Ultimate electric propulsion

Also making its European debut in Rotterdam is the all-electric Mustang Mach-E 1400 – a one-of-a-kind prototype with more than 1,400 PS of power.

The result of 10,000 hours of collaboration by Ford Performance and tuning specialists RTR Vehicles, Mustang Mach-E 1400 is aimed at bridging the gap between what an electric vehicle can do and what customers tend to believe it can do.

Aerodynamics are optimised for shape and location, and seven motors have a huge range of adjustability to set the car up for everything from drifting to high-speed track racing.

“One is a production model, the other an extreme prototype, but our Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E 1400 have something in common, which is immediate, adaptable power delivery, creating a driving experience that has to be experienced to be believed,” Rowley said.

The 0-62mph times for the AWD and RWD versions sound promising as well. Like a lot of you expected, ford has been pretty conservative with the estimates. Now I'm looking even more forward to get my AWD ER :)

Did you see the times for AWD standard range and/or RWD mentioned somewhere?

I can only see GT and AWD extended. Don't understand why they would publish the numbers for these two models and not all of them? Keeping is on our toes? It's getting old. :(

I've seen the numbers for the RWD versions on Fords German Website.
The Standard range is published with 6.2 seconds and the ER with 6.1 seconds. The AWD standard range is published with 5.6 seconds. Sounds promising too.

Hopefully, all will be revealed by the time I see my MMe in five months. 😞

The 0-100 kph looks news, the range is the same old targeted number.

I thought the range on the AWD LR is 270 miles. Here the range is stated to be 335 miles.

I realize that these are estimates, but to me this looks like an increase in range of 65 miles or 24% - or is this the European range calculations vs. American where the European is always greater so 335 miles European = 270 miles American?

Thanks.

The EU WLTP testing almost always results in longer ranges than the US EPA.

Tesla Model Y performance option 0-62 3.5 seconds.
Tesla Numbers rarely bare examinations. Real World testing shows their 0-62 to be about 4.4 seconds. I don't trust tesla numbers anyway, since they don't reveal any details on how they do testing.

Thanks @Paul84!

Hadn't noticed Ford had published the final numbers.

One more thing I hadn't noticed, is these are "rolling start" numbers. Equivalent numbers from a standstill, are quite lower.
A 7 second 0-100 for the RWD, isn't exactly mind blowing. And 6.3s for the AWD SR, is meh.

To me the numbers still sound pretty nice, if you see the size and weight of the car. Also it always depends what other cars you're comparing it to. As I've read it, "rolling start" means, that the wheels are just turning a few inches without really gaining any speed before going full throttle. I think, this is used to compensate the difference to testing 0-62 on ICE vehicles, where they try to reach the best possible rpm before hitting the pedal. Excuse me if I'm wrong, cause I'm not that much of a car technician.
Personally I think in reality the times will be in the middle of both values and you won't "feel" the Difference of 0.5 seconds that much. My current car goes 0 to 62 in about 12 second. So a huge improvement for me :)

Just watched a real world video, 3.4 seconds to 60 for performance Model Y. Tesla claims 3.5. There are plenty of cars around and plenty of drag videos to verify or debunk Tesla claims. Lets wait and see what happens when there are Mach-E production models available to drive. That said, the claimed Mach-E numbers are good numbers, enough to really enjoy the cars.

I drove the Model Y AWD LR and clocked 4.8 seconds so the Performance is easily a second below.

we won’t know how they truly compare until the independent reviews start coming in in the next month or so. Articles and videos we are all waiting for.

As I said in other posts, I feel the crazy fast 0-60 times are only good for bragging rights and silencing the petrol-heads. In everyday life, the fraction-of-a-second differences are not so relevant.

Very nice.

According to this InsideEVs article, that 335 miles WLTP range might equal 300 miles EPA range. That is using the 1.12 conversion factor noted in the article. Good news, if true.
