PROVIDENCE, R.I. — When Ford introduced their first entry into the electric vehicle market last year, it was full of surprises.  Perhaps the biggest of which was that this all-electric SUV will be wearing a Mustang badge.  That’s right, all the heritage and history of the world’s first pony car will usher in another new era at Ford.

The Mustang brand, which is older than Elon Musk, has evolved through six generations since Lee Iacocca first launched the original Mustang in 1965 (technically 1964 1/2 for you petrolhead purists).  Now Ford will expand the Mustang line-up in 2021 with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV.  The Mach-E will stand tall next to three more traditional, gasoline-powered Mustang models, including the Sports Coupe, Convertible, and Special Edition.  Mustang Mach-E has an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles with the available extended range battery and rear-wheel drive.

On Monday, Ford rolled out the Mach-E GT Performance Edition, which delivers more torque, grip, and better handling than the base model by drawing more power from its battery pack.  The GT Performance Edition is targeting an EPA-estimated range of 235 miles and 0-60 in the mid-3-second range, which is comparable to a Porsche 911 GTS.

The Mustang Mach-E has a starting price at around $43,000 which drops below $36,000 after an EV tax credit.  That’s slightly lower than Tesla’s Model Y and significantly less than the $79,900 Tesla Model X.
