The New Mustang Mach-E Charges Faster than Ford Expected

The new Ford Mustang Mach-E has not yet gone on sale. The company is taking advantage of this by improving the electric SUV and adding new features.

The upcoming all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E will be getting better with time like wine. The company is confident in this, because the car will receive regular updates, including new features that the model simply will not have at the start.

The charging speed of the Mustang Mach-E is higher than expected

Moreover, the electric SUV began to surprise even before the start of sales. So, real tests showed that the Mustang Mach-E will be able to drive an average of 30% further after 10 minutes of charging than computer tests showed. This means that the car’s RWD configuration with a long-range battery will be able to travel 25 km further.

The AWD model will be able to get extra 106 km in the same 10 minutes. Moreover, the car in both configurations will be able to charge from 10-80% in just 45 minutes. Standard batteries will be charged in just 38 minutes. Thus, the total drive range will reach 595 km.

The Mustang Mach-E will receive important updates in sleep mode

Certainly, the main feature to surprise owners of the Ford Mustang Mach-E is a system of rapid wireless updates. Some of them can be downloaded in sleep mode, for example at night. Updates will be installed almost instantly after the car is started.

Moreover, in some cases, it may take only about 2 minutes to download and install the update. If the update still takes much time, the owner will be able to reschedule it. This system is very different from most other cars, which require owners to wait until software is updated. According to Embedded Modern Features Manager John Vangelov, the car will get more features and capabilities over time this way.

Besides, these updates go far beyond SYNC®. Almost all computer modules of the Mach-E can be updated wirelessly. This means that Ford can provide performance improvements and completely new features that might not have been in the car at the time of purchase.
