Mustang Mach-E GT… Ford’s Ace In the EV Race
Two weeks ago Ford told its dealers across the country to stop taking orders for the Mach-E Mustang all electric SUV. That the announcement overlapping with the extended intro of the 2022 Mach-E GT and GT Performance models turns out to be entirely incidental to its impending overwhelming success in the US marketplace.
Had there not been a pandemic, supply chain disruptions and a chip shortage, the old line car sales tactic would have been to sell out a limited supply of the new Mustang EV to build a swell of demand.
In fact the latest all-electric Mach-E GT and GT Performance edition, boasting 480 horsepower and 0 – 60 times of 3.5 seconds, notably .1 second slower than the $65,000 Shelby Mustang GT500, is the second-best-selling e-SUV in the US with a real shot at overtaking the Tesla Y.
What makes the Mustang Mach-E competitive starts outside with a visual appeal that is muscular, sexy, and subtly aggressive. Making the most of the efficiency and safety standard prescribed aerodynamic egg shaped profile, there’s not a hint of appliance gadgetry appeal.
Roomy 5 passenger GT stylish seating, with comprehensive tech very intuitively accessed via a 15.5 inch vertically oriented touchscreen infotainment center, makes this Mustang a great choice for around $60K.
No surprise that the NYPD ordered 184 of them in a drive to make the department carbon neutral.
