Ford Mustang Mach-E Price and Specs for Australia

It took a long wait but Ford is finally jumping on the electric vehicle bandwagon in Australia with a confirmed launch of its Mustang Mach-E electric SUV by the end of this year. The Mach-E arrives in Australia three years after its US launch and Australia and we’ll get three variants of the electric SUV namely, Select, Premium and the range-topping Performance GT model.

The Mach-E Select comes with a 71kWh battery pack along with a claimed range of 470km (pending final homologation). If you want more range, the Mach-E Premium is the most efficient variant as its 91kWh battery comes paired with a single 216kW/430Nm electric motor with a range of up to 600km (WLTP).

How Much Does the Mustang Mach-E Cost in Australia?

Ford Australia has confirmed pricing for the Mustang Mach E, with prices starting from $79,990 plus on-road costs for the Mustang Mach-E Select. At the top of the Mach-E range sits the dual-motor Mustang Mach-E GT with prices starting from $108,990 plus on-road costs, above that of competitors like the Kia EV6 GT ($99,590) and Tesla Model Y Performance ($98,415).

Ford Mustang Mach-E model grade Power and drive type Range Price excluding on-road costs
Mustang Mach-E Select 198kW, single motor RWD Up to 470km $79,990
Mustang Mach-E Premium 216kW, single motor RWD Up to 600km $92,990
Mustang Mach-E Select 358kW, dual motor AWD Up to 490km $108,990

The sweet spot of the range certainly seems like the Mustang Mach-E Premium with a single motor that produces 216kW of power and offers the most range of the line-up at almost 600km WLTP.

Online ordering is open from today, with Danni Winter, Marketing Director, Ford Australia, backing the Mustang Mach-E’s shift from the traditional. “This is why we’ve made the decision to offer customers the chance to reserve their vehicle online. It’s a natural part of our digital evolution and allows our customers to shop with their Authorised Ford EV Dealer 24/7.” If we were parting with $100,000 we’d at least want to drive the car first, but that’s not the way of the market! With most competitors offering a similar ordering system.

Those craving for more performance, the Performance GT model ups the ante with its 91kWh battery and dual motors developing a combined 358kW and 860Nm. As a result, this electrified pony car will dispatch 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds although the range drops to 490km. The GT Performance spec also gets some important upgrades over the standard trims with a MagneRide suspension, performance brakes and an ‘Untame Plus’ drive mode.

The Mach-E will be Ford Australia’s first electric passenger vehicle, following the launch of the electric E-Transit commercial van.

“We are thrilled to bring the Mustang Mach-E to Australia,” said Andrew Birkic, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand. “It’s an exciting time for electric vehicles in Australia, and Mach-E gives us the chance to do what Mustang has done best for decades – put a smile on customers’ faces.”

“We know Australians love that feeling of driving a performance car, and the Mach-E will mean they can enjoy that iconic Mustang freedom with all the benefits that an EV offers. There is something special about the Mach-E that you can only really understand once you get behind the wheel,” he continued.

Inside, all trims are generously equipped with features such as a 15.5-inch infotainment screen with SYNC4, a 10.2-inch digital cluster, wireless charging, a 10-speaker B&O audio system and a panoramic sunroof.

Online reservations will begin soon and pricing would be revealed closer to the launch. However, the Mustang Mach-E won’t be the only electric offering for Australia as no less than five electrified models are planned for launch by the end of 2024.
