Danny Ric attends eMustang Aus announcement

Ford Australia has confirmed that the highly-anticipated Mustang Mach-E electric SUV will be available for purchase in Australia later this year, offering a new era of performance to the Blue Oval’s local line-up. The Mach-E will be Ford Australia’s first all-electric passenger vehicle and will be available in three variants: the Select, Premium, and the flagship GT, with a range of performance and driving options to suit a wide range of customers.

Andrew Birkic, President and CEO of Ford Australia and New Zealand, said, “We are thrilled to bring the Mustang Mach-E to Australia. 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 customer’s 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.”

The Mach-E GT sits atop the range, boasting 358kW/860Nm of power, making it the quickest car Ford will sell locally. It delivers an electrifying on-demand performance, with an exclusive Untame Plus drive mode that is designed for track use only, helping unleash the GT’s true potential as a modern driver’s car by optimising the power delivery to its pair of electric motors.

Underpinning all Australian-delivered Mach-Es are a pair of battery options, with the Select variant powered by a 71kWh lithium iron phosphate battery and the Premium and GT models utilising a bigger 91kWh battery, with the latter delivering close to 600km of range-anxiety-free driving.

Every Mach-E variant is designed to offer convenience and performance in equal measure, with a special Untame drive mode that offers drivers a truly electrifying experience. By selecting Untame, the Mach-E’s true potential as a driver’s car is unleashed, with improved acceleration, braking feel, and more detailed steering response.

Inside each Mach-E is an interior designed to offer comfort and luxury, with the centrepiece being a 15.5-inch infotainment screen, equipped with Ford’s compelling SYNC4 operating system. This is paired with a 10.2-inch digital cluster, wireless charging, and a thumping 10-speaker B&O Sound System that delivers heart-pounding bass. Every Australian Mach-E will also be fitted with a panoramic sunroof as standard.

In a first for a Ford vehicle in Australia, customers will exclusively be able to reserve their Mustang Mach-E online through ford.com.au via one of Ford’s EV approved dealers, with reservations due to open soon. A full list of features for each Mach-E variant sold in Australia, along with pricing, will be revealed closer to local launch.

Mach-E forms an important part of Ford’s electrified future in Australia, with a plan to bring at least five electrified vehicles down under by the end of 2024. Ford is committed to electrifying its entire global portfolio by 2030 and expects that two-thirds of its global sales will be all-electric by 2030. The Mustang Mach-E’s launch in Australia is a significant step towards this goal, as the carmaker continues to lead the charge towards a more sustainable automotive future.
