No matter how small the power boost, it is always welcome

The 2020 Mustang Mach-E is a very important product for Ford. The SUV is the first all-electric vehicle in the company’s lineup and Ford decided to attach the iconic Mustang nameplate to it for some reason. This also makes it the first all-wheel-drive Mustang-badged car ever to leave Ford’s production line.

FoMoCo launched the product last year and started accepting orders around the same time. The SUV is due in 2021, but Ford has made a few changes to the power specs. According to macheclub, some models are expected to receive increased power figures. There is no word on a price increase, so this is good news.

Old Figures vs The New Figures

The information was leaked from a Ford dealer that suggests that the Mach-E is set to receive a power bump. Previously, these were the declared power figures for the electric SUV:

Standard Range Rear-Wheel-Drive 255 horsepower 306 pound-feet of torque
Standard Range All-Wheel-Drive 255 horsepower 417 pound-feet of torque
Extended Range Rear-Wheel-Drive 282 horsepower 306 pound-feet of torque
Extended Range All-Wheel-Drive 332 horsepower 417 pound-feet of torque

All these combinations have received an increase in horsepower and torque. The new power outputs are allegedly rated at:

Standard Range Rear-Wheel-Drive 266 horsepower 317 pound-feet of torque
Standard Range All-Wheel-Drive 266 horsepower 428 pound-feet of torque
Extended Range Rear-Wheel-Drive 290 horsepower 317 pound-feet of torque
Extended Range All-Wheel-Drive 346 horsepower 428 pound-feet of torque

All the models have received an increase of 11 pound-feet of torque, and the highest horsepower increase – 14 ponies – is seen on the all-wheel-drive, extended-range variant. There is no word on the power figures of the GT and GT Performance models. As of now, the twins make 459 horses 612 pound-feet of twist.

What Are The Battery Pack Sizes And How Much Range Do They Offer?

The company will be offering the crossover with two battery packs:

Standard Range 75.7-kWh battery pack
Extended Range 98.8-kWh battery pack

There is no information if the range is affected by the increase in power figures. Here are the range figures that we already know:

Standard Range, Rear-Wheel-Drive 230 miles
Standard Range, All-Wheel-Drive 210 miles
Extended Range, Rear-Wheel-Drive 300 miles
Extended Range, All-Wheel-Drive 270 miles

What Is Ford’s Situation On The Charging Front?

Ford has already taken care of the customers’ charging needs. The company is promising access to 75-percent of the EV charging facilities through the FordPass Charging Network. That’s roughly 12,500 charging stations all across the country. The network enables charging up to 150 kilowatts that can add 47 miles to the range in as little as 10 minutes on rear-wheel-drive models.

The extended range, on the other hand, can be charged from 10-percent to 80-percent in just 38 minutes. The amount for the charging will be deducted from your FordPass account.

To charge the Mach-E at home, Ford offers a Connected Charging station with a 240-volt line that can add 32 miles of range per hour. Ford also offers a mobile charger, which adds merely three miles to the range every hour when plugged into a 120-volt outlet. Not much, but good for emergencies, though.

Ford also recently filed a trademark for a new charging solution known as Fastor Charge. Jokes about the name aside, should it become a reality, it would be a charging network that rivals that of Tesla in some regard.

Final Thoughts

The increase in power figures is welcome, but we hope that range isn’t affected significantly. It’ll be interesting to see if the GT trims also receive a power boost. After all, an increase is always an edge over the competition. Will these power boosts be applied via an over-the-air update or will they come from the factory?
