Ford may well reserve a little surprise for buyers of the new Mustang Mach-E, which is scheduled to be released at the end of the year (if the coronavirus doesn't shake up the brand's plans too much). While its engineers continue to work remotely because of the pandemic to try to maintain the release schedule of the first electric SUV of the brand of Detroit, the latter have already concocted a small course of vitamins for this model already quite well endowed with power.

8 to 14 more horses

According to a document serving as a technical sheet for dealers, the power of the different versions of the Mustang Mach-E appears to be slightly higher than what had been announced at the start, when the car was officially launched last November. According to this document, the powers are as follows:

  • RWD Standard Range Mach-E:
    • 266 hp / 317 Nm / 198 kW
    • (+11 hp, +15 Nm, +8 kW)
  • RWD Extended Range Mach-E:
    • 290 hp / 317 Nm / 216 kW
    • (+8 hp, +15 Nm, +6 kW)
  • AWD Standard Range Mach-E:
    • 266 hp / 428 Nm / 198 kW
    • (+11 hp, +15 Nm, +8 kW)
  • AWD Extended Range Mach-E:
    • 346 hp / 428 Nm / 258 kW
    • (+14 hp, +15 Nm, +10 kW)

These power variations are not a first. Tesla, for example, offers substantial power increases with certain updates to its cars already in service with its customers. In just a few months in 2019 and early 2020, the Model 3 Performance gained nearly 40 horsepower, going from 450 official horses when it was released to around 490 horsepower today. It is one of the characteristics of electric cars to benefit from a performance evolution reserve based on the optimization of battery and engine management algorithms.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E met with great success at its launch since the order book for the first series produced for 2020 was filled in a few weeks. The prices of the Mustang Mach-E will range from 48,990 to 69,500 euros depending on the model and version.
