Shelby American, a subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc., is honoring the 100th anniversary of its founder’s birth with the introduction of the Shelby Mustang Mach-E GT, the company’s first production EV. This special edition Mustang Mach-E will only be available in Europe, and will feature a post-title package that enhances the SUV’s handling and styling.
Modifications for the Mustang Mach-E GT
Based on the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, the Shelby package modifies the electric all-wheel drive vehicle, focusing on reducing weight, improving performance, and providing auditory appeal. Key components of the package include a carbon fiber hood and splitter, custom lightweight wheels, and a handling package that lowers the vehicle. Other Shelby modifications to the vehicle include carbon fiber mirror caps, door trim, racing stripes, and custom Shelby floor mats.
A total of 100 packages will be available to retrofit privately-owned 2021-2023 model year Mustang Mach-E GT SUV’s or be added to a new vehicle by a Shelby American dealer in select European countries within the 2023 calendar year. As the first production version of an EV in the company’s history, it offers owners potential collectability.
The Growing Electric Vehicle Market
Many countries are moving toward electrification and the global EV market has experienced exponential growth over the last decade. Global sales of electric cars increased by around 60 percent in 2022, surpassing 10 million for the first time. According to the International Energy Agency, one in every seven passenger cars bought in 2022 was an EV.
Availability of Mustang Mach-E
The Mustang Mach-E is available in 39 countries across the world for 2023, up from 22 in the vehicle’s first year. Ford has produced its 150,000th Mustang Mach-E since starting production nearly two years ago, a significant milestone as the company scales EV production to a rate of 600,000 annually by late 2023 and more than 2 million annually by 2026.
