Ford Brings High Power Mach-E to Europe

Ford will bring its Tesla rivaling full performance Mustang Mach-E GT to Europe next year boasting a hypercar matching 0-62mph sprint of 3.7 seconds.

The BEV will hit the showrooms late 2021 and claims a power output of 461bhp plus 612ft-lbs of torque, all wheel drive and a top speed limited to 124mph. It features as standard an 88 kWh (useable) extended-range battery for a targeted WLTP pure-electric driving range of up to 310 miles, supported by Intelligent Range, which predicts how much range drivers have using past driving behavior, weather forecasts and crowd-sourced data from other Mustang Mach-E vehicles.

The cars will be supported by an ecosystem claiming integrated access to charging across Europe. Ford has also announced Mustang Mach-E customers placing an order this year and into 2021 will receive five years of free access to the FordPass Charging Network that has grown by almost 25% in the last year to include more than 155,000 charge stations across Europe.

The Mustang Mach-E GT made its European debut 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.

Stuart Rowley, president, 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.”
