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

1600938023045.jpg


  • 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).4

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).4

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.


1Ford Mustang Mach-E GT available in Europe end of 2021. Target Ford test data based on testing methodology using 1-ft rollout i.e. from a rolling start.

2Requires feature activation.

3Don’t drive distracted. Use voice operated systems where possible and don’t use handheld devices while driving.

4Officially homologated energy efficiency figures will be published closer to on-sale date. The declared fuel/energy consumptions, CO2-emissions and electric range are determined according to the technical requirements and specifications of the European Regulations (EC) 715/2007 and (EU) 2017/1151 as last amended. Light Duty Vehicle type-approved using the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) will have fuel/energy consumption and CO2-emission information for New European Drive Cycle (NEDC) and WLTP. WLTP will fully replace the NEDC latest by the end of the year 2020. The applied standard test procedures enable comparison between different vehicle types and different manufacturers. During NEDC phase-out, WLTP fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are being correlated back to NEDC. There will be some variance to the previous fuel economy and emissions as some elements of the tests have altered, so the same car might have different fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

so the 0-60 is really 1-60 (or 62 in this case)

Might bring 0-60 down to 5.0! Of course, this is the EU model. The NA model may be different.

I see no mention of a performance edition a 0-62 of 3.7 would be close to a 3.5 0-60 so the ball park figure quoted for the performance version over here, maybe Europe will just get the performance model as standard seeing as all the euro mustangs where pp1 equipped .

Bit dubious using the 1ft roll as per the small print mind as that is typically not standard euro measuring, of course in its class gives them a lot of leeway as to what they are comparing to.

I’m going to ask what “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.” means exactly.
Ionity is one of the expensive Fast Charge networks in the EU so 1yr free would be very nice!

Pricing:€0,79/kWh

I doubt they'll want to let the non-GTs hit 60 in anything less than 5.0 seconds. You don't want to embarrass the poor Ecoboost mustang too badly!
HA! I don't know about that. I could see an OTA update power boost coming for sale at a later time, just like Tesla did (hopefully cheaper).

335 miles WLTP = 270 miles EPA, plus or minus a few miles

Tesla Model Y LR is 4.8s 0-60 so it's possible Mach-E AWD ER has matched that.

There had been an earlier revision to the website that the GT's "less than 4 seconds" 0-60 mph figure had been narrowed to mid-three seconds.

The GT Performance Edition will be quicker than the base GT and now I'm starting to wonder if it'll even be called the GT Performance at all.

The easiest way to convince die hard fossil Mustang fanatics that electric propulsion is the future is to blow away a GT500 off the line with a base level MME GT.

Tbf you'd also need fake "V8 with fart can" noise blasting outside to convert the real diehards. 😉

I was actually hoping my SR RWD would match my 2015 v6, but alas I don't think it will come close.

Note the release language on range stated "targeted". That was old information.

The 0-100 kph was stated as actual testing (emphasis on stated but they used the word delivers).
