Ford Unveils Incredibly Fast Mustang Mach-E GT For The European Market
Ford first introduced in Europe the sporty Mustang Mach-E GT, which accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, which will complete the lineup in our region at the end of 2021. The all-electric, 465-horsepower, all-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E GT leads Europe at the time of disclosure, hitting 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds.
Ford Mustang Mach-E GT
No other car in this segment accelerates better than the Mustang Mach-E GT, with its 465 horsepower battery-electric powertrain sending power to all wheels - the perfect configuration for drivers ready to experience the full potential of an electric vehicle.
The Mustang Mach-E GT will feature Ford's industry-leading Charging Solutions, which will provide easy, integrated network access across Europe, relieving drivers of road stress. Ford announced that buyers who place an order for a Mustang Mach-E this year and next will receive five years of free access2 to the FordPass charging network, which has grown by nearly 25% in less than a year to now include more than 155,000 stations across Europe.
Customers ordering the Mach-E model will also receive one year free access2 to the IONITY fast charging network, which will open more than 270 out of 400 planned stations by the end of this year.
The European debut of the Mustang Mach-E GT took place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands at the Ford Go Electric presentation, a showcase of practical and fun activities that will help bring electric drive closer to consumers, earn their trust and showcase affordable solutions with real benefits.
The new Mustang Mach-E GT represents true all-electric performance, but performance doesn't matter if it can't be used. “Our charging infrastructure initiatives mean Mustang Mach-E owners can enjoy the ride knowing they can quickly and easily charge their vehicles across Europe,” said Stuart Rowley, President, Ford of Europe1.
Electric vehicle performance
The Mustang Mach-E GT guarantees the impressive performance and character of the legendary sports Mustang, as well as the ability to carry five passengers in a refined cabin and complete comfort. 465 hp twin-engine transmission transmits 830 Nm of maximum torque to the front and rear axles independently for even better handling and acceleration up to 100 km/h, which corresponds to the acceleration of the Tesla Model Y. Top speed is limited to 200 km/h. .
Additional options include MagneRide adaptive suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and exclusive body paint such as Cyber Orange. Inside, we find a 15.5-inch Full HD touchscreen that supports the next generation SYNC3 communication and entertainment system, which learns from driver behavior and offers intelligent suggestions. The interior of this version is unique in the lineup and includes Ford Performance seats and a distinctive steering wheel with suede inserts.
The Mustang Mach-E GT comes standard with an 88kWh enhanced payload traction battery, for ranges up to 500km (measured on the WLTP cycle), 4 is powered by Intelligent Range service that more accurately predicts range. based on factors such as driving style, weather forecasts, and even data from other Mach-E Mustangs that have already completed the same route.
Ford also said that the standard Mustang Mach-E, equipped with an extended battery and all-wheel drive, accelerates to 100 km / h in 5.1-5 seconds (the time that the Tesla Model Y Long Range reaches), it also offers a range of up to 540 km on WLTP 4 cycle
The company provides owners of all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles with access to the FordPass charging network, the largest network of public charging stations in Europe, with about 30,000 stations launched since October 2019.
By partnering with NewMotion, Ford customers will be able to easily find stations, reach them as a waypoint, pay and control charging in 21 countries with a single account2, making their work easier.
Ford is a founder and shareholder of the IONITY association, which builds fast charging stations along motorways and in the most important European cities. Initiatives to make it easier to access the FordPass IONITY charging network can be especially helpful for EV owners who cannot charge EVs at home or at work.
With peak output of 150kW at IONITY fast charging stations, the long-range rear-wheel drive Mustang Mach-E achieves a range of up to 119km in just 10 minutes of charging6 and a target electric range. (measured by WLTP cycle) up to 610 km 4
No universal solution
Ford believes that a wide range of electrified powertrain solutions is the most efficient way to achieve energy efficiency in the future. By the end of next year, Ford will introduce 17 new electrified models in our region.
Earlier this year, Ford of Europe called on governments, industry and institutions to support electrification efforts by expanding public charging infrastructure more quickly. Meanwhile, Ford's diverse portfolio of hybrid vehicles is helping more customers reduce operating costs, protect the climate and increase confidence in electric drives.
Seventy-five percent of Puma units sold this August are equipped with a mild hybrid, with a 48-volt electrical system to support the EcoBoost engine. Fifty-five percent of new Kuga sales during the same period were plug-in versions of the Kuga Plug-In Hybrid.
Over 240,000 km UK testing with 20 Transit Custom Plug-In Hybrid vans showed the vehicles covered 75 per cent of the distance in central London in clean zero emission mode, drastically reducing emissions in the city centre.
Hybrid-powered S-MAX and Galaxy models will join the Mondeo Hybrid early next year. This was made possible by a €42 million investment in a Ford plant in Valencia, Spain, and a state-of-the-art battery assembly plant.
The sale speaks for itself. We believe that customers will appreciate mild hybrids, traditional hybrids and plug-in hybrids that perfectly match their lifestyle. We also see motivating interest in our electric models,” Rowley said.
Extreme electric drive
The all-electric Mustang Mach-E 1400, a one-of-a-kind prototype with over 1,400 hp, also made its European debut in Rotterdam.
The Mustang Mach-E 1400 is the result of 10,000 hours of tuning work by Ford Performance and RTR Vehicles to bridge the gap between what customers think an electric car is and what it actually does.
The aerodynamics have been fine-tuned in shape and tuning, and the seven engines have been given a wide range of adjustments to ensure the drivetrain is tuned for everything from drifting to circuit racing.
“One is a production model, the other is an extreme prototype, but what our Mustang Mach-E GT and Mach-E 1400 have in common is an instantaneous, fully controlled power boost that guarantees driving pleasure you have to believe. believe it Rowley.
- The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT will go on sale in Europe at the end of 2021. Ford's test data is based on the "1-foot roll-out" test methodology, which is a measurement of the drag band of a vehicle that is already rolling.
- The system will require activation.
- Do not drive if you are distracted. Use voice control systems whenever possible; without them, do not use mobile devices while driving.
- Official energy approval data will be provided prior to sale.
