As automakers continue to bump up electric vehicle range, range anxiety is quickly becoming a thing of the past — even for performance EVs. Ford announced that its  Mustang Mach-E GT and Mach-E GT Performance Edition, two higher-performance editions of the automaker’s new all-electric SUV, are good for an EPA estimated 270 and 260 miles of range, respectively. That notably beats the automaker’s earlier estimates of around 250 (GT) and 235 (GT Performance Edition) miles.

Battery Options

The Mach-E is available with standard (66-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery) and extended-range (88-kwh battery) battery options and in either rear- or all-wheel drive. The models have EPA estimated driving ranges between 211 and 305 miles depending on configuration.

Power

Power outputs also vary by model. The base trim, called Select, produces 266 horsepower and 306 pounds-feet of torque with the standard battery (428 pounds-feet of torque with AWD). At the top of the lineup, Ford says the sport-oriented GT and GT Performance models are good for 480 horsepower, with 600 pounds-feet of torque from the GT and 634 pounds-feet from the GT Performance Edition. Ford says the Mach-E GT Performance Edition sprints from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds, with the GT making it in 3.8 seconds.

Price and Release Date

The Mach-E GT starts at $61,000 with the Performance Edition version starting at $66,000; That’s well north of pricing for the Mach-E’s entry-level Select trim, which starts at $43,995. All prices include a $1,100 destination charge but exclude any potential savings from federal tax credits. The Mach-E is still eligible for the full $7,500 Federal EV tax credit.

Ford is taking orders now, and the GT and GT Performance Edition trims should be delivered in the fall.
