I've yet to see one on the street in my neck of the woods. Dealer lots generally are pretty empty of new inventory. Hope the OP has his.

I don't have mine yet. I did get to see a Performance Edition up close last weekend at Laguna Seca though. Production date for mine shows 9/7, but also got an email from Ford saying 6 week delay due to chip shortage.

I really want to get it before the end of the year to get the tax credits to offset some LRCX stock sales.

What entails in the "performance edition"?
A longer range battery? Better suspension?

Performance Edition has 634 foot pounds of torque instead of 600 on the GT, and the magnetic suspension. Not sure what else.

I received the 6 week delay email on our ordered GT ..... Our production day shows (or did show) 9/29

It's a very..... very......extremely small sample size but as of right now I'm am disappointed in the 1/4mi times for the GT PE. I thought it would be faster and quicker . But like I said this is an extremely small sample size




The owner says his Mach-E GT had only 72% battery charge at the start of track tests and was not in the “Unbridled Extend” track mode, which means that all electronic aids, including traction control, were on.


Furthermore, Matt says the tire pressure may have been too high at 42 psi (warm)—Ford recommends it to be at 39. That said, he’s confident he can do better as soon as he gets back on the track. For now, he’s quite happy with a best quarter-mile time of 12.657 seconds at 100.02 mph. That’s not bad at all.

Here are the track splits:

  • 1/4 mile: 12.657 sec @ 100.02mph
  • 1000ft: 10.433 sec
  • 1/8 mile: 8.03 sec @ 86.67 mph
  • 330ft: 5.26 sec
  • 60ft: 1.99 sec
During the same run, the Dragy speed tracking device detected the following acceleration rates:

  • 0-10 in 0.58
  • 0-20 in 1.20
  • 0-30 in 1.80
  • 0-40 in 2.44
  • 0-50 in 3.21
  • 0-60 in 4.12
  • 0-60(1ft) in 3.89
In a road test 40 minutes later, Matt repeated an acceleration run and did 0-60 in 3.78 seconds (with a 1ft rollout). That's pretty close to the official 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and quite remarkable given the conditions

So, how would performance then be at, say, 25% battery charge remaining? Do the electronics cut performance to lengthen the miles remaining?

I thought these EVs were supposed to be the quickest things on the street... not "quick" for cars from 20-25 years ago

Like all batteries, the voltage drops as the state of charge drops. Less voltage = less power. No cutting to lengthen the miles.

IMO, something's up with the guy or his car who posted the results. The regular extended range model with a LOT less torque does the quarter @ right about 100 MPH.
