Buyers have just received confirmation.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has gotten off to a strong start with impressive sales figures, but there's always room for improvement. For the Mach-E, that improvement comes in the form of the GT model. It seems that Ford is making the most of the hype surrounding this model by inflating prices, but that hasn't put many buyers off. Late last month, orders officially opened for the upgraded EV, and interestingly, production is set to commence fairly soon. According to numerous posts on the MachEClub forum, buyers have received confirmation that their vehicles are scheduled to begin production in the week of July 12, 2021.
Sadly, the notifications sent out don't give any indication of when these buyers might expect delivery of their shiny new electric SUVs, but it does appear that both Performance editions and regular Mach-E GTs are seeing production commence at the same time. For reference, the regular Mach-E produces anything from 266 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque up to 346 hp and 428 lb-ft in First Edition models. The Mach-E GT ups the ante with 480 horses and 600 lb-ft of twist, while the range-topping Performance Edition keeps power the same but boosts torque to 634 lb-ft, enabling a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds.
Along with the performance enhancements, buyers will enjoy sportier styling and unique GT badges, just like on a 'proper' Mustang. Performance models get 15-inch front brake discs that are bitten on by red calipers from Brembo too, and you get other upgrades like Pirelli rubber, MagneRide adaptive dampers, and a unique cabin trimmed in ActiveX material and decorated with aluminum. It should be a pretty impressive package when it finally arrives, but considering how many delays Ford has put its customers through recently, especially with new vehicles, we wouldn't bet on seeing your shiny new Mach-E until late in the third quarter of the year.
