2021 Mustang Mach-E Gets More Power Across The Board As Order Banks Open Up

When Ford originally unveiled the 2021 Mustang Mach-E last fall, it said that the standard rear-wheel-drive model would produce 255 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque, while the all-wheel-drive extended range model would produce 332 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. Back in April, rumors suggested that those numbers would inevitably be higher by the time the Mach-E went on sale, and today, Ford confirmed it.

The performance specs for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E are now official, and break down as follows:

  • The extended-range all-wheel-drive Mach-E will deliver 346 horsepower/258 kilowatts and 428 pound-feet of torque, with a targeted 0-60 time in the mid 5 second range
  • The extended-range rear-wheel-drive models will produce 290 horsepower/216 kilowatts and 317 pound-feet, up from previous estimates of 282 horsepower/210 kilowatts and 306 pound-feet
  • Standard-range all-wheel-drive models will pump out 266 horsepower/198 kilowatts and 428 pound-feet, up from 255 horsepower/190 kilowatts and 417 pound-feet
  • Standard-range rear-wheel-drive models will deliver 266 horsepower/198 kilowatts and 317 pound-feet of torque

More power is always a good thing, and it’s clear that Ford has worked to extract as much of it as possible from the new Mach-E. It’s also great timing on the automaker’s part to announce these improved numbers, as today marks the day that Mach-E order banks officially open in the U.S. Currently, reservation holders are being invited to convert their reservations to official orders.

Deliveries of the new Mach-E are expected to begin in the U.S. later this year, while Europe will begin receiving units in early 2021. Ford’s first-ever all-electric SUV will be packing a ton of cool tech when it arrives as well, including over-the-air update capability, serious winter driving chops, quick-charging capability, and the ability to accurately predict range based on real-time data. Plus, buyers will also receive up to five free charges at Electrify America charging stations.

Those that are interested in purchasing a 2021 Mustang Mach-E will want to shop around, however, as some have reported that dealers are already marking up their future inventory.

    I am confused. I thought that the hottest one was supposed to be 3.5 to 60.

      That’s the GT. It isn’t coming out until next year. No final word on its power figures just yet.

    I’m in general in favor of this car – however – an electric car friend of mine’s 8 year old daughter just pulled the door handle off her dad’s C-Max Plug-in Hybrid. The car was also in the shop for 3 months since no one at ford could figure out how to get the car to charge its battery – fortunately the service and Volvo loaner were paid for all that time under warranty.

    But that ‘slice of life’ example shows how Ford can ultimately never make any money on Electrics if they don’t start building them better. What happened to “Quality is Job One”?

    I need to know if the rear door windows will go down flush with the door so my dog can stick his head out. No Tesla has windows that go down flush with the door that is a question I asked Tesla several times with no answer but found out thru forums. The only electric that meets this criteria is the Rivian I will wait one more year to go electric it has to be better than my F 250 diesel and my Ram eco Diesel.
