We are now informed that the first Ford Mustang Mach-eGT is being delivered. Rapid Red GT Performance customers today showed off their two-week early score at Iowa. Are you more advanced?
According to macheforums Poster 0t60-3.5The Rapid Red model arrived last night in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, two weeks earlier than expected. He picked it up at the dealer last night, took some snaps just in time and charged it.
Members of the Mach-E Forum said:
Sorry, it was delivered late in the afternoon, left the dealer at 5:45 pm, was late for a business dinner, then went home, took my wife home, took some snapshots, posted on this forum, I charged it. I went to bed. There’s little time left, but it’s true that people want to see and hear more. I’ll do a little bit today (something I have to do) and do more this weekend. Please look for it sooner! The delivery date was 8/29 to 9/4, so the delivery date on 8/19 was unexpectedly early, so I wasn’t ready.
Ford is currently hosting the big annual Woodward Dream Cruise Media Clubhouse event in Detroit. Unfortunately, due to schedule and Covid concerns, I had to decline the offer to participate. However, the Mustang Maché GT performance includes a lot of images of the event, so I think the car is flowing in earnest.
A Ford spokesperson confirmed:
Yes GT is now available and will increase in the coming months
Ford had Announced that Mach E delivery will be delayed by 6 weeks Earlier this month, we provided 250kW (about 700 miles) of charging credits to those affected by the delay on the Electrify America network. Due to lack of chips and other pandemic supply chain issues Ford is making more Mach-E (Mexico) than the traditional Mustang (USA).
we Mustang Mach-E First Edition Review Back in the chilly February, I was impressed with the range, ride, space and styling. Compared to Tesla’s Model Y in many ways.
Ford Priced Mach-EGT for Trucks for $ 60,000, GT Performance, is $ 65,000, an aggressive price for high-end Mustangs, subject to the current US $ 7,500 federal tax credit and various state and local incentives. The GT is similar to the slow Mach-E, with the biggest difference being the plastic carbon fiber fake grille and pony on the front, as shown below.
The estimated range of EPA is GT and Performance Edition GT Earlier this year, Ford surpassed its original estimates and was on par with the low-power version.
|Ford Mustang Mach-E (Target EPA Estimate Range)||Ford Mustang Mach-E (EPA final estimate)|
|GT: 250 miles||GT: 270 miles|
|GT Performance Edition: 235 miles||GT Performance Edition: 260 miles|
The Mach-E GT Performance Edition reaches 0-60 hours in 3.5 seconds, which is a pretty hot choice.when First edition review, I took notes:
I don’t think I fully understand the difference between the speeds of electricity and ICE. Indeed, there are ICE cars that run 0-60 times in less than 5 seconds. But to make it faster, you’re downshifting, redlining, and jerking and striking gear on most high-speed petrol cars. It feels and sounds like it’s actually damaging the struggling engine, which isn’t designed to do this often.
Compare it to an EV that just sucks forward like a railgun. You can do your best at all highway entrances forever with EV and no one will close your eyes. But if you do it in an ICE car, people will call your police officer.

Wheels and tires:
Faster than promised delivery? During a pandemic? Is there a shortage of chips? Supply chain issues? Bravo, Ford!
Promising and over-delivery is rare in the EV industry these days. We hope that many other manufacturers (Ehem, Tesla) are paying attention.
The GT itself was very close to the order, but first I would like to test drive it and compare it with the Hyundai Ioniq 5. That said, I think this is my next front runner. We also want to see the progress of Ford’s “autonomous driving”.
Of course, we will leave the Tesla Model Y in the family and use it for long-distance trips in the near future. For a 200-mile trip to Vermont in the middle of winter, it works fine and the charging network outside of Tesla is much better, so I think it will be feasible for longer trips in the near future.
