Ford Re-Opening Orders for Updated Mustang Mach-E
Ford has re-opened the order banks for the Mustang Mach-E, with feature improvements on the way, including increased range and power for standard range battery models. With completed plant upgrades supporting production ramp in the second half of 2023, the production increase for the Mustang Mach-E is part of Ford’s plan to scale electric vehicles and make them more accessible and affordable for customers.
All standard range models will now be powered by lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, which allows the eAWD configuration to gain an additional 45 horsepower and improves the targeted EPA range estimates for standard range RWD and eAWD configurations.
In addition to increased targeted range and power, standard range models can now charge to 100% more frequently via AC home charging. When on the road, DC fast charging to 80 percent battery capacity from 10 percent is only 33 minutes, a 5-minute reduction when compared to previous standard range models. BlueCruise, which enables hands-free driving on highways, now will be available with the choice to experience the technology with a complimentary 90-day trial since all Mustang Mach-E SUVs will be built with the necessary hardware for the capability.
Ford has built an in-house team dedicated to constantly improving BlueCruise – adding features and enhancing performance with a more natural driving feel. The new features of BlueCruise 1.2 include hands-free lane changes when requested by the driver tapping the turn signal and in-lane repositioning ability to help keep the vehicle in its lane while subtly shifting position away from vehicles in adjacent lanes – especially helpful when next to bigger vehicles such as semis. BlueCruise is now equipped on 199,000 Ford and Lincoln vehicles in North America and customers have accumulated more than 70 million hands-free miles driven with the technology.
The Mustang Mach-E qualifies for potential Inflation Reduction Act federal tax credits in 2023 of $3,750. New available offerings for Mustang Mach-E include the optional Comfort Package Lite on Select which features heated front seats, heated steering wheel, and memory driver seat and sideview power folding mirrors. Premium models with standard range battery receive new 19-inch Shadow-Silver painted aluminum wheels with high gloss black-painted aero covers. The GT Performance Edition is now available with optional all-season tires.
The Mustang Mach-E is capable of over-the-air software updates, the latest being the availability of news and video apps as standard across all Mustang Mach-E vehicles. These apps can be accessed using the SYNC screen while the vehicle is parked. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to try out this amazing vehicle with all its new features!
