The all-electric Mustang Mach-E – the first production EV Ford developed from the ground up – will be coming to South Africa in 2025, Ford has announced.

“We will be moving into a new electrified era with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E in 2025 as we deliver on Ford’s commitment to a cleaner, greener, electric future,” says Kay Hart, president of Ford International Markets Group.

According to Ford, “the Mustang Mach-E introduces the freedom, performance, and iconic character of the world’s best-selling sports car to all-electric vehicle customers. Powered by a responsive, energy-efficient, battery-electric drivetrain, the first-ever SUV member of the Mustang family delivers impressive performance and acceleration.”

While the local Mustang Mach-E range is yet to be confirmed, globally it is available in Select, Premium, and GT specification and performance levels.

The headline act is the all-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E GT, which Ford says is propelled by more torque than any production Ford road-vehicle. It can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 3.73 seconds, the manufacturer claims.

In the GT, a dual-motor, all-wheel drive, battery-electric powertrain, “MagneRide” adaptive suspension, and high-performance Brembo brakes combine for sports car responsiveness and agility, Ford says. The Mustang Mach-E GT also features front sports seats and unique body-styling – further differentiating the GT’s sleek and powerful design while retaining the Mustang signature, the company adds.

This is how the GT’s performance compares to the rest of the Mach-E range:

Model variantRangePower / Torque0-100 km/h
Select RWD470 km198 kW / 430 Nm6.3 s
Premium RWD600 km216 kW / 430 Nm6.2 s
Premium AWD550 km258 kW / 580 Nm5.1 s
GT AWD490 km358 kW / 860 Nm3.7 s

Standard equipment on all Mustang Mach-E variants includes autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with car-to-car, vulnerable road user, and junction assist. Lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and emergency lane keeping are also standard.

Retail prices are still unknown but expect to pay similar prices to those of the petrol-powered Mustangs.
