Ford Australia has today confirmed the highly-anticipated Mustang Mach-E electric SUV will be available for purchase in Australia from later this year, bringing a new era of performance to the Blue Oval’s local line up.
The Mach-E will be Ford Australia’s first all-electric passenger vehicle, following the launch of the electric E-Transit commercial van, and the company will offer customers a trio of variants to choose between.
At its core, the Mach-E has been designed to live up to its Mustang heritage, with cutting-edge technology to give drivers a new, exhilarating experience behind the wheel.
Sitting atop the Mustang Mach-E range in Australia will be the flagship GT, with thrilling performance making it the quickest car Ford will sell locally. Complementing the performance Mach-E GT will be Select and Premium variants.
Every Mustang Mach-E variant is designed to offer convenience and performance in equal measure, with a special Untame drive mode that offers drivers a truly electrifying experience.
By selecting Untame, the Mach-E’s true potential as a driver’s car is unleashed with quicker acceleration response, and a sportier steering feel. Underpinning all Australian-delivered Mustang Mach-Es are a pair of battery options too.
Powering the Select is a 71kWh battery. The battery is paired with a single electric motor which delivers 198kW and 430Nm to the rear wheels. Ford is aiming for circa 470km of tailpipe-emission free driving, pending final homologation.
The Mach-E Premium utilises a bigger 91kWh battery paired with a single 216kW/430Nm electric motor for the longest range of the line-up – with close to 600km of range. Similarly, the Mach-E GT also utilises the higher capacity 91kWh battery.
Its dual electric motors are designed to deliver greater levels of performance delivering 358kW/860Nm to all four wheels for a claimed driving range of 490km, and an electrifying 0-100km/h sprint of 3.7 seconds.
This means when the Mustang Mach-E GT arrives in Australia, it will be the fastest accelerating vehicle in Ford’s local showrooms.
Further boosting the GT’s performance credentials is MagneRide suspension, performance brakes, and an exclusive Untame Plus drive mode, designed for race tracks.
What is essentially “race mode”, it proactively cools the battery and moderates power output, relaxing stability and traction control limits, modifying AWD strategy, and recalibrating acceleration and brake pedal mapping.
Inside each Mach-E is an interior designed to offer comfort and luxury for five adults, with the centrepiece being a 15.5-inch infotainment screen, equipped with Ford’s compelling SYNC4 operating system.
This is paired with a 10.2 inch digital cluster, wireless mobile phone charging and thumping 10-speaker B&O sound system that delivers heart-pounding bass. Every Australian Mach-E will also be fitted with a panoramic sunroof as standard.
Customers will be able to reserve their Mustang Mach-E online or through Ford’s EV approved dealers, with reservations due to open soon. To be kept informed though, you can register your interest.
A full list of features for each Mach-E variant sold in Australia, along with pricing, will be revealed closer to local launch. Ford plans to bring at least five electrified vehicles down under by the end of 2024.
