Ford has revealed the EPA-estimated ranges for the upcoming Mustang Mach-E GT and Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition. The highest-powered versions of the all-new EV will still return more than respectable mileage despite crazy quickness and power. In fact, both offer even better range than originally anticipated.

Available Now: The 2021 Mustang Mach-E Select, Premium, and California Route 1 up for grabs now

Last December, Ford announced final estimated performance figures for the Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition, confirming the whopper 3.5-second 0-60 time for the latter. At that time, Ford tapped the GT to return 250 miles on a full charge and the GT Performance Edition for 235 miles.

Each gets an upgrade after passing the EPA’s certification and range labeling processes. According to the EPA, the Mustang Mach-E GT will return 270 miles on a full charge while the GT Performance Edition returns 260 miles.

For context, the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition — which puts out 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque — offers just 35 miles less range than the California Route 1. It’ll also offer nearly 50 miles more max range than the base Mustang Mach-E Select with the standard-range battery and all-wheel drive — but it’ll be about 1.7 seconds quicker to hit 0-60 mph.

Of course, the main draw with the GT and GT Performance Edition isn’t the range — though it’s a nice perk.

“With Pirelli summer tires and MagneRide damping system, Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition drivers get the performance thrills of 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds while being able to travel further with the final EPA-estimated range of 260 miles,” said Darren Palmer, global director, battery electric vehicles, Ford Motor Company. “More than half of our orders for the Mustang Mach-E GT have been for the Performance Edition, and I’m particularly pleased that we have had orders from every state across the U.S.

Preorders for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition are open now with the former starting at $59,990 and the latter starting at $64,900. Both are eligible for up to $7,500 in federal tax credits. Ford says deliveries for both will kick off in the fall.
