- a ford dealer site located by the mach-e forum shows slight power increases for the standard and extended-range 2021 mustang mach-e models over those ford initially estimated.
- the standard-range version of the electric crossover could make up to 266 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive, and the extended-range model could make up to 346 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive.
- ford's first electric crossover will be priced starting at $44,995 and is scheduled to arrive later this year.
at the debut last fall of the 2021 mustang mach-e electric crossover, ford said it would produce 255 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque for the standard-range models and 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque for the awd extended-range model. those configurations could be getting a slight power boost, though, because photos from a ford dealer site found by the mach-e forum show slightly higher power figures.
mustang mach-es equipped with the standard-range battery and all-wheel drive will reach up to 210 miles of electric range, ford says. on the dealer site, an increase of 11 horsepower, 11 lb-ft of torque, and 8 kw for the rear- and all-wheel-drive standard range models is shown, giving them 266 horsepower and 198 kw. the rear-wheel-drive model is rated at 317 lb-ft of torque and the all-wheel-drive model at 428 lb-ft.
for the mustang mach-e extended range, which is rated at 300 miles of range for the rear-wheel-drive model, power is increased to 290 horsepower (up 8 hp), 317 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 11), and 216 kw (an increase of 6) on the rear-wheel-drive model. for the all-wheel-drive model, the power figures are increased to 346 horsepower (up 14 hp), 428 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 11), and 258 kw (an increase of 10).
the 2021 mustang mach-e is available with either a standard-range 75.7-kwh battery or an extended-range 98.8-kwh pack. both batteries provide power to an electric motor mounted on the rear or both axles.
a ford spokesperson contacted by car and driver about these new figures said only that the automaker will "share more details about mustang mach-e closer to launch." there's no word yet on the rear-wheel-drive-only california route 1 model or a higher-performance gt, which are said to produce up to 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. they'll arrive in early 2021.
several trim levels of the mustang mach-e will be available, including select, premium, california route 1, gt, and gt performance edition. ford's first electric crossover starts at $44,995 and can reach prices over $60,000.
