The 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is the most impressive version of the small electric SUV from a performance standpoint. When the Mach-E first hit the scene, many Blue Oval fans speculated that the electric vehicle wouldn’t truly embody the Mustang spirit. It’s safe to say that skeptics were wrong based on the power output and acceleration of models like the Mach-E GT and Rally. The industry is abuzz regarding the arrival of the exciting new trim. Here’s why the hype is justified.

Reasons the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is exciting

  1. The 2024 Mach-E Rally is the most powerful Mach-E
  2. Ford’s Mach-E GT hints at what to expect from the Rally
  3. This new trim level has the potential to gain attention for the nameplate

How much horsepower and torque does Ford’s new Mustang Mach-E trim make?

The new Mach-E configuration produces an exhilarating 480 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. That’s 16 more lb-ft of torque than the Mach-E GT. The Mach-E GT and Rally both produce 480 horses. To put that number into perspective, the popular Toyota RAV4 small SUV only makes 203 horses. The more performance-oriented small luxury SUV, the BMW X3, has a maximum horsepower output of 382. So, the Mach-E GT Rally packs a whole lot of ponies, to say the least.

Furthermore, the 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally’s electric powertrain system can deliver instant torque, which is an experience in itself. Its massive 650 lb-ft of torque delivered instantly creates a unique driving experience that few rivals can compete with. A Mustang, indeed.

Prior to the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E Rally, the GT was the most impressive Mach-E model. Its estimated 3.7-second 0-60 miles per hour acceleration time is nothing to scoff at.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E rivals models like the Kia EV6 GT. Since the Mustang Mach-E Rally produces more torque than the GT trim, it’s safe to assume that it could have an even quicker 0-60 time. Perhaps closer to the 3.5-second mark, thanks to its tuning.

Though there’s still plenty to learn about the Mustang Mach-E Rally, it’s clear that it’s the Blue Oval’s best attempt at a track-ready Mustang Mach-E. Based on its available performance specs, mission accomplished Ford. With a starting price of around $65K, it won’t be the first choice of most consumers, but it’s certainly something to captivate EV fans. In fact, its capability and speed could get the attention of gearheads in general, even those who aren’t fond of electric vehicles.
