What of this will you get from just the standard Mach-E?
Well if you order the GT you’ll get a 88 kWh battery with a range of 250 miles, and a target 0-60 speed of under 4 seconds. A lot about the actual power of the GT hasn’t been released and we’re still waiting to see what the horsepower it will make is, but we can bet (now after we’ve seen the Mach-E 1400) that it will be fast.
You’ll still get that fancy digital dashboard, with a digital console next to it. And a much more comfortable interior than the 1400.
The price of the GT also isn’t that crazy, at somewhere around $60,500 you could have a lot of fun and also take your kids to soccer practice.
But there’s another option, for $60,500 you could take an old mustang and electrify it to make a super performance electric fun car. So definitely something to consider.
In the past when Ford has created performance versions of their cars, shortly after you see a lot of people try and replicate it themselves. In this case, some people have beat Ford to the punch. The European performance company STARD made a rally electric Ford Fiesta, theirs makes a measly 614hp which is only measly compared to the 1400hp Mach-E. But regardless it means that other people can make performance electric cars.
EVWest for a while has been making performance electric cars, and they even set a record with their BMW M3 that ran Pike’s peak. Their first run was nearly a decade ago.
So what do you want? A Mach-E standard? Or are you willing to fork up that same amount of money for something to compete with the 1400. I think you could make something pretty interesting with $60,000.
