Earlier this year, rumors surfaced that suggested the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E would beat its original power estimates. And sure enough, a couple of months later, it did just that. Now, some internet whispers are suggesting that official Mach-E range numbers might just be higher than the original EPA estimates as well.
According to the rumors, the Mach-E is currently undergoing official EPA testing. After this has been completed, it’s expected that Ford will revise its original Mach-E range estimates upward, much the same way it managed to find a few extra horsepower and pound-feet of torque back in June.
Currently, the EPA estimated range for all Mach-E models is as follows:
- 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
- GT with optional equipment: 235 miles
As Ford Authority previously reported, Mach-E production is scheduled to begin at the Ford Cuautitlan Plant in Mexico on October 26th, 2020. Deliveries are expected to begin in the U.S. shortly thereafter, 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.
Inside, Mach-E occupants will enjoy a B&O stereo system that’s the first such unit from Ford to dominate the dashboard of the vehicle, with around one-third of the dash dedicated to audio. A specially-developed Heathered Grey textile that conceals the dashboard-mounted tweeters is designed to replicate the look and feel of the fabric-based speaker covers of B&O’s home speakers, too.
