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.
