The performance-oriented Ford Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance electric crossovers are now available to order, and some folks are taking delivery. Now that these high-performance variants are available, it's time to compare them to the popular Tesla Model Y Performance.
The Tesla Model Y is one of the best-selling EVs across the globe. For now, it only comes in two variations, at least in the US. The Model Y Long Range, which starts at $54,990, and the Performance model, which will set you back at least $61,990.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E has been on the market for a time, and we've been well-aware of the GT and GT Performance models. In fact, we've offered a comparison like this in the past, but it was only based on what Ford provided on paper.
The Mustang Mach-E carries an MSRP of $42,895, and it's eligible for the $7,500 US federal EV tax credit. The Mach-E GT starts at $59,995, and the GT Performance comes in at $64,995. Both are eligible for the $7,500 tax credit.
More recently, our own Tom Moloughney published a detailed, first-drive review of the Mustang Mach-E GT, which certainly deserves your attention. It's linked in the related items at the bottom of the article.
