At £66,280, the GT is the most expensive Ford Mustang Mach-E of them all. Powered by two electric motors that produce a combined output of 480 bhp (358 kilowatts) and a colossal 634 pound-feet (860 Newton-metres) of torque, YouTuber AutoTopNL took the European version of the electric performance SUV to an unrestricted section of the Autobahn.
The 'Stang for the EV era was put through its paces on a wet and cold surface, so traction was a bit of an issue. That said, the all-wheel-drive setup granted by the dual electric motors should have offset the unfriendly conditions to some extent. It needed 4.47 seconds to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from a standstill, which some would argue it's a bit disappointing seeing as how the Blue Oval rates the GT at 3.7 seconds.

It showed a typical EV's limitations in terms of top speed as it simply couldn't keep up with a mundane Skoda Superb Combi. Even though the Mach-E GT has "Performance" in its name, it was just too slow compared to the midsize Czech estate. Being a Scout version, the Skoda was also all-wheel drive, with power likely coming from the 2.0-litre diesel engine since very few opt for the 2.0 TSI unit when buying this type of car.
Getting back to the zero-emissions Mustang, it redid the 0 to 62 mph test but ended up even slower, at 4.62 seconds. The driver continued to push the accelerator pedal and completed the quarter-mile in 13.03 seconds before doing the half-mile run in 21.57 seconds on his way to the one-mile threshold in just under 37 seconds.
At almost 1,700 kilograms (3,747 pounds), the Superb Scout isn't exactly a light car either, but the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT still carries roughly 570 kg (1,256 lbs) of extra bulk over the TDI-powered estate. It's also worth mentioning the SUV's peak power is available for only five seconds, so it's easy to understand why a plain Skoda was effortlessly faster.
