Owners of the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT armor received an email back in May stating that their vehicles would go into production on July 12th. About a month after that date, Mach-E Forum users report that GT deliveries have finally begun.
Now that deliveries have kicked off, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is meeting (and exceeding) sales expectations. Beginning in July 2021, the Mach-E has surpassed the original Mustang in sales, and demand is so high that dealerships are struggling to keep vehicles in stock. Consumers are clearly in love with the standard Mach-E, but now fans will have more reasons to buy it – the Mach-E GT is finally here.
A user from Cedar Rapids, Iowa posted a photo of his Rapid Red Metallic specimen, which arrived on the afternoon of August 19, two weeks earlier than the customer expected. This is the first Mach-E GT delivery reported on the forum, and it’s not just a GT model – it’s a Performance Edition.
“GT deliveries have begun and will continue to grow over the next few months,” confirmed Emma Bergg, public relations specialist for electric vehicles at Ford.
As a reminder, the standard Mach-E GT puts out 480 horsepower and 813 Nm of torque from two electric motors, while the Performance Edition picks it up to 860 Nm of torque at the same power rating. With slightly more power, the Performance Edition accelerates to 100 km / h in just 3.5 seconds (the base GT in 3.8 seconds). As a compromise, the standard GT can travel 400 km on a single charge, while the Performance Edition is limited to 380 km.
As owners now get their hands on the first performance-oriented EV from Ford, we look forward to the first press review. The standard Mach-E with its larger battery and four-wheel drive already felt fast, so this GT model should deliver even more thrills.
