Ford is wasting no time announcing its intentions to bring an ultimate factory performance model of the Mustang Mach-E! A Shelby Mach-E is in the works, as Ford executives has just confirmed!

Ford plans a hot Mustang Mach-E Shelby

Ford’s Mustang Mach-E will get a high-performance Shelby badged version, according to bosses

November 20, 2019

Ford executives have confirmed that plans are afoot to create a flagship performance version of the Mustang Mach-E under the famous Shelby brand. The Mustang Mach-E Shelby would follow on from the muscular 750bhp Mustang Shelby GT500 coupe and sit above the current range-topper in the recently unveiled Mach-E range, the GT.

Speaking to evo, Ford Performance chief programme engineer Ed Krenz said: ‘I’m looking forward to the challenge of applying the Shelby characteristics to an electric car. The trick for us is the fun-to-drive part, and sustainability in terms of charging. It needs to be capable to go all day on a trackday – you can’t do 20 minutes and then have to charge it all night.’

Ford is intent on making sure the Mach-E lives up to its Mustang branding in terms of the levels of performance on offer and the driving experience. The Shelby variant would be the flagship Mach-E in this regard, pushing the platform towards its limits for road and track driving.

The power output for the current Mustang Mach-E GT model has yet to be confirmed but the car uses the all-wheel drive version of the Mach-E’s powertrain and Ford says it’s targeting a 0-60mph sprint time of under 4sec with a 250-mile range. With the mid-spec Mach-E Extended Range models packing 327bhp (and 417lb ft of torque) it’s probably reasonable to expect 350bhp from the GT model and close to 400bhp from the eventual Shelby variant.

Actually I don't mind Ford doing a Shelby version of this car. I don't mind the car as such either. I don't care for it, but I don't mind Ford developing it, because they need to be in the EV market. Naming it a Mustang however is a total atrocity and the biggest mistake in Ford history, even surpassing the Edsel. #notamustang

The Shelby name has been whored out constantly by Shelby American already. Once Ford decided to call this turd a Mustang and put a pony on it, the die was set. I was pretty irritated last night when I saw this announcement, but not surprised.

How about a nice tall glass of STFU Ford. Going down a road that's going to cost them in the end.

Maybe they will bring the 2 door ponycar back and call it the Aerostar in about 15 years.

I hate electronics, I like gas and oil, I like the smell of gas, the smell of exhaust, the feel of oil, spark plugs. Too bad things are going this way. I've made up my mind to never buy a new vehicle again, only something old, the older the better.
