A bigger battery pack is certainly a welcome addition.
Recently, we learned when the upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E would be available to order, but now a leak has sprung at headquarters and we can see what exactly will be available when that day arrives. The Mustang Mach-E has promised Tesla-rivaling technology, but the big news from the order guide is that you will be able to order a larger battery pack. The standard unit is a 68kWh pack, but the guide reveals that you can also have an 88 kWh version for greater range security.
This should allow up to 300 miles of range on a single charge, which is certainly enough for practical use.
Other details confirmed in the order guide include the fitment of a 10.2-inch digital driver info display, a 15.5-inch central touchscreen infotainment display, and an available 10-speaker sound system from Bang & Olufsen. You will also be able to use your phone as a key and that the infotainment system will run the new SYNC 4A software with enhanced voice recognition.
In addition, safety will be bolstered by Ford's Co-Pilot 360 system with blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and parking sensors. Other optional equipment that will be available includes heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, active park assist, and 19-inch wheels.
Still, the really important news is that battery back. Bolstered by a fast-charging port, the Mach-E should be one of the most usable electric vehicles on sale. In addition to this, Ford will pay for your first few charges too, so the Mach-E should be immensely popular with buyers. Will these incentives be enough to steal the spotlight from the Tesla Model Y? Well, it seems that the Mach-E's standard and available features will be more "normal" and car-like than those offered by Teslas, and this familiarity should go a long way to swaying indecisive buyers. We can't wait to see what comes next.
