DETROIT — Ford of Canada says the order bank for the Mach-E GT Performance Edition variant will open this week as the company continues the rollout of its first electric crossover.
The automaker said only the Mach-E GT Performance Edition will be available north of the border while U.S. customers can also order the Mustang Mach-E GT.
The Mach-E GT Performance Edition will start at $84,955, including shipping.
Ford said the GT Performance Edition will deliver 480 hp and 634 pound-feet of torque and go 0 to 60 mph — or 0 to 96 km/h — in a time of 3.5 seconds.
"We're pushing the boundaries of what an electric vehicle can offer," Dave Pericak, vehicle program director, said in a statement. "These Mustang Mach-E models not only give customers the added capability expected from the GT name, but the responsiveness of their electric powertrains will ensure they have a thrilling experience behind the wheel."
The vehicle will look slightly different from other Mach-E models. The exterior will feature a grille area that is different in colour from the rest of the exterior and will have illuminated pony badges.
Ford said deliveries of the variant will begin this fall.
Ford sold 665 Mach-E crossovers in Canada during the first quarter of 2021.
