Ford has been long-pursuing the electric vehicle game with all sorts of entries. But none as exciting as the Ford Mustang Mach-E. This vehicle is certainly one of those cars that have searching for a leg-up on the competition with a battery upgrade via the standard range model, in which, lithium -ion units can be proper swapped for brand-new lithium iron phosphate units — also known as LFP units. The 70.0-kilowatt hours batteries are able to bring some extra miles of range, with rear-wheel drive models that can target about 250-mile EPA estimate, and all-wheel drive versions that can push it beyond 200 miles. In addition to all of this, the Mach-E can be seen as a cheaper option with, even the base Select trim starting at about less than $3000, while the Premium trim itself sees a $4000 cut.

As of recent, there’s enough interest in the Ford Mustang Mach-E to where Ford is making plans. First to buy off batteries from the Chinese at CATL. Then, for a specifically dedicated factory to open up in Michigan at about 2026, where CATL’s LFP batteries can be built under a license. The latest packs within the standard range of Mach-Es come with a 70.0-kilowatt hours capacity, as the latest unlocks extra miles of range. Rear-wheel drice models increase from about 247 miles to around 250 miles of EPA estimates. In addition, the all-wheel-drive standard range of Mach Es can bump up from 224 to about 226 miles.

The fresh batteries themselves can lead to a 45-horsepower boost for all-wheel-drive standard range Ford Mustang Mach-Es.

What’s more, is that Ford states the ability for standard range models to fully recharge way more often as they use AC home charging, as five minutes get shaved off the DC fast-charging time. Ford believes that standard-range Ford Mustang Mach-Es will only need around 33 minutes to go from about 10 to 80 percent of charge. Extended range versions for the Mach-E will meanwhile keep using the same 91.0-kilowatt-hours lithium-ion battery packs.

Mach-Es are all assembled with the latest hardware for BlueCruise, as Ford’s brand-new hands-free highway driving system. The Customers of such are likely to receive a free 90-day trial, with an additional option to activate the system. BlueCruise, as of now, can show hands-free lane changes when the driver turns on the signal while the Mach-E adjusts positioning to let bigger vehicles like semi-trucks with a wide berth.  The Mach-Es are likely to also see a raise in production, in the Mexico plant, which may prompt Ford to open up the order books for the electric crossover selling out at least 40,000 units in the last year.
