Summary


The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is a performance model that sits at the top of the all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV range, which first arrived in the UK in 2021.

This performance version is powered by an 88kWh battery pack, paired with two electric motors to provide an output of 480hp – 210hp more than the entry-level Mustang Mach-E model. According to the Top Gear team: “The GT’s monstrous pace isn’t in doubt, and it’s a better handling, comfier, prettier machine than the base car.”

That said, the majority of reviewers find the Mach-E GT’s steep pricing hard to justify, particularly as the standard Mach-E already offers strong straight-line performance.

As Autocar‘s Matt Saunder’s sums up his review: “Other than for a bigger dose of roll-on thrust, it leaves you wondering why you might spend a £20,000 premium on it above any of its showroom siblings.”

As of January 2024, the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT holds a New Car Expert Rating of A, with a score of 71%. As a used car, this slips slightly to a B, with a score of 66%. It scores highly for safety and its lack of any tailpipe emissions, while media reviews are fairly middling and running costs are rather high for an electric car.

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

Overall score: 5 stars
Date tested: October 2021
Read the full Euro NCAP review

Adult protection: 92%
Child protection: 86%
Vulnerable road users: 69%
Safety assist: 82%

The Mustang Mach-E line-up, including the Mach-E GT, comes with all of the safety kit you’d expect to protect you in the event of an accident and – even better – avoid one in the first place, so it comes as no surprise that Euro NCAP gave the Mustang Mach-e a five-star rating.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

Model tested: Electric 4X4 Automatic

Overall score: 5 stars
Date tested: October 2021
Read the full Green NCAP review

Clean Air Index: 10 / 10
Energy Efficiency Index: 9.4 / 10
Greenhouse Gas Index: 10 / 10

Emissions tester Green NCAP ran a four-wheel drive version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E through its paces in 2021, awarding the car a full five-star rating. This model is powered by a 88kWh battery pack, like the top-spec Mach-E GT, but the Mach-E GT’s drivetrain has been tweaked to provide more performance.

This means that, should the Mach-E GT ever be tested individually, its scores may differ from those shown above. But, as electric cars are much more energy-efficient than combustion cars, this performance-enhanced variant would still almost certainly score very highly in Green NCAP testing.
