DubiCompare: Ford Mustang GT v/s Mustang Mach-E GT: The Gas Guzzler Against The EV Electric Revolutionary

The debate over petrol cars versus electric cars is one of the hottest topics in present times. Currently, there is no definitive answer as to which of the two you should pick as we found out in our latest guide here. However, this topic got hotter when Ford took the gamble of taking a brand that has been revered by petrolheads over the years and giving it an electric powertrain.

In this week’s edition of DubiCompare, we are comparing the legendary Mustang GT and the electrifying Mustang Mach-E GT. Does the Mach-E have what it takes to bear the Mustang name or is it all just an open circuit for the eyes? We find out in this interesting and fun comparison of Mustang GT v/s Mustang Mach-E GT.

Starting with the obvious, the Mustang GT is a two-door sports coupe designed to turn heads and not much in terms of practicality. On the other hand, the Mach-E is a crossover SUV that has four doors and 5 proper seats to accommodate more passengers in comfort. In terms of space and practicality, this one goes to the new kid on the block for being spacious enough to make it an everyday car and a weekend getaway car for 5 people.

Ford has done their best to give the family car aggressive looks with large wheels and a beefed-up body. However, the simple fact of the matter is that the Mach-E has to cut through the air like a knife through butter. This makes it impossible for brands to give electric cars aggressive styling and eventually feature rounded edges. On the other hand, the Mustang GT wins the segment for exterior looks with its coupe body style and muscle car looks. It is a beaut to look at, especially with some stripes.

The Mach-E GT being the latest one of the two, has more features as compared to the Mustang GT. The interiors of the Mach-E make you feel premium with a bit of sportiness. Although the Mustang GT has most of the features, it is certainly not a tech fest, which is what buyers want from the muscle car. The cabin screams sportiness and appeals to the buyers. In this case, it is just a matter of personal preference. Both cabins are equally equipped to keep passengers entertained and in comfort.

Opting for the electric GT will help you save on fuel costs adding further to the practicality and ease of ownership. Also, the Mach-E GT is period correct and is the car for the future. However, if you are a daredevil, and want to hear what you drive from three blocks away, then the 5L V8 petrol engine under the bonnet of the Mustang GT is famed for delivering just that! The Mustang GT is also stress-free as your journeys are not dependent on the availability of chargers along the way.
