Ford Mustang Mach-E Now Comes With More Power
【Summary】Ford’s pulling out all of the stops with the upcoming Mustang Mach-E, as the electric crossover will now come with more power than originally thought.
Regardless of how you may feel about Ford's decision to name its upcoming electric vehicle the Mustang Mach-E, the crossover's on its way and will be arriving at any time. Originally, the Mustang Mach-E carved a good place for itself in the market, sitting above more pedestrian vehicles and below high-performance vehicles from Tesla and Porsche. For consumers that were worried they wouldn't get enough power from the Mustang Mach-E, we have good news. Ford just increased the amount of power the crossover will produce when it's introduced.
More Power For Every EV
Power for the entire Mustang Mach-E lineup has gone up. The entry-level Standard Range Mustang Mach-E with rear-wheel drive gets an additional 11 horsepower and 11 pound-feet of torque more than before. Power for that model is now rated at 266 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel-drive models with the Standard Engine get a similar 11 hp and 11 lb-ft of torque bump in power, as well.
The Extended Range battery pack gets a more modest bump in performance, as power is now rated at 290 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque – increases of 8 hp and 11 lb-ft of torque from before. Those figures are for rear-wheel-drive models. All-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E SUVs with the Extended Range battery get the largest increase in power, benefitting from 14 hp and 11 lb-ft of torque. Now, Mustang Mach-E SUVs with the Extended Range battery pack and all-wheel drive generate 346 hp and 428 lb-ft of torque.
"We remain dedicated to delivering on the promise of the Mustang name," said Ron Heiser, Mustang Mach-E chief program engineer. "These better-than-estimated performance figures show that our team is squeezing every last bit of performance out of this vehicle so that it not only delivers Mustang style but Mustang soul as well."
Ford's EV Coming This Year
Ford didn't say where it managed to get the extra power from, but the beauty of electric vehicles is how a simple software update can improve performance. While Ford won't come out and say it, we believe that's exactly what the automaker did to draw more power from the electric crossover.
In addition to giving the Mustang Mach-E's new horsepower figures, Ford announced that order banks for U.S. consumers is now open. Additionally, reservation holders are being invited to convert their reservations to official orders. Consumers that placed an order for the Mustang Mach-E when books first opened up can expect to receive their vehicle before the end of the year depending on what trim they signed up for.
