ford mustang mach-e gets software and design upgrades in europe

Source: Ford

Ford’ new all-electric Mustang Mach-E will be getting some tantalising upgrades in Europe, with new and enhanced driver assistance technologies as well as upgraded comfort and styling features.

The American automotive icon announced late last week in Europe that its Mustang Mach-E would be getting new features including advanced Intelligent Automated Cruise Control 2.0. This feature, according to Ford, “can use information from the navigation system and forward-facing camera to automatically adjust vehicle speed not only according to speed limit signs but also to upcoming curves, turns and roundabouts.”

A wider model range will also be available in Europe. Previously, the Ford Mustang Mach-E was available only as an all-wheel-drive model, but the Premium specification is now offered for rear-wheel-drive models with a 91kWh extended-range battery and adds 19-inch allow wheels.

Both the Mustang Mach-E rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models equipped with the 91kWh extended-range battery will now be able to tow up to 1,500 kg – an increase on the previous limit of 1,000 kg.

Additional upgrades for the Premium spec’d Mach-E include Adaptive LED headlights with Glare-Free Auto High Beam, eight-way powered driver and passenger seats, and red brake callipers combined with black exterior detailing.

Meanwhile, for all variants there are two new exterior colour options – a “head-turning” ‘Vapor Blue and Carbonized Grey’ – as well as two additional alloyw wheel designs.

Martin Sander, general manager of Ford for Europe said in a statement that the Mustang Mach-E was ” developed from the ground up” to deliver “character and performance” drivers expect from the iconic brand.

“Now we’ve made the first SUV member of the Mustang family even more tempting for the ever-growing number of customers ready to embrace the electric revolution,” he said.

Whether or not any of this information will be relevant for Australian consumers, however, remains an unknown.

Ford confirmed earlier this year that the Mustang Mach-E would be heading to New Zealand in early 2023, but no official word has been given as to whether or not Australia will also be seeing the battery-electric SUV arrive on its shores.

Carsales has reported, quoting a “well-placed source … with intimate knowledge of the matter”, that the Mustang Mach-E was one of five electrified models that Ford Australia will be launching by the end of 2024, but even then, there remains no actual timeframe or potential launch date.

We have reached out to Ford Australia for comment and will update as appropriate.
