Ford is once again taking orders for the Mustang Mach-E, touting longer range and lower price for one of the top-rated EVs.
The Mustang Mach-E is one of the highest-rated EVs on the market, even topping Tesla’s Model 3 in Consumer Reports rankings. The EV is pivotal to Ford’s efforts to become the world’s top EV maker.
According to a company press release, Ford has re-opened orders for the Mach-E, offering a number of significant perks, not the least of which is increased “range 250 miles for RWD and 226 miles for eAWD.”
All standard range models will now be powered by lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries. This change 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 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 33 minutes, a 5-minute reduction when compared to previous standard range models
Ford says all Mach-Es will be built with the hardware to support the company’s hands-free driving BlueCruise. This will give customers the option of a 90-day free trial.
The company has also lowered the price on all models, with the decrease ranging from $1,000 to $4,000, depending on the model.
“We continue to find ways to improve the value of the Mustang Mach-E,” said Marin Gjaja, chief customer officer, Ford Model e. “Upgraded BlueCruise rolling out for new and existing Mustang Mach-E owners, increased range and faster DC charging times on standard range models show how we are relentlessly improving our products for our customers.”
