The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is loaded with technology features as standard equipment, befitting of the fact that it’s an electric vehicle. However, the 2021 Mach-E only came with one key fob, a strange omission in a world where almost every new vehicle is sold with two fobs, though owners can also utilize Ford’s Phone as a Key feature. That’s changing for the new model year, however, as sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E will come with two key fobs as standard.
In addition to gaining a second key fob, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is in store for a few additional changes over the 2021 model, as Ford Authority has reported over the last several months. The 2022 Mach-E will gain usable battery capacity, which will help increase range over the current model. The EV crossover will also lose its “front trunk” in favor of a “drainable frunk” and get the new Ice White Appearance Package as an option. Finally, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 will be available with optional all-wheel drive, making it the cheapest way to get a Mach-E with both Ford’s extended range battery and all-wheel drive.
2022 Mustang Mach-E lessees will only be eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit if they opt for the Ford Options Plan – which is a type of balloon financing that provides lower monthly payments than a purchase, yet also requires a larger one-time payment at the end of the loan term. Buyers looking to score some money off a 2022 model can get as much as a $2,500 discount on the EV crossover in certain markets, however, which is good news for those that had their unscheduled 2021 Mustang Mach-E order pushed to 2022.
