• A Ford dealer site located by the Mach-E Forum shows slight power increases for the standard and extended-range 2021 Mustang Mach-E models over those Ford initially estimated.
  • The standard-range version of the electric crossover could make up to 266 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive, and the extended-range model could make up to 346 horsepower and 428 lb-ft of torque with all-wheel drive.
  • Ford’s first electric crossover will be priced starting at $44,995 and is scheduled to arrive later this year.

    At the debut last fall of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E electric crossover, Ford said it would produce 255 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque for the standard-range models and 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque for the AWD extended-range model. Those configurations could be getting a slight power boost, though, because photos from a Ford dealer site found by the Mach-E Forum show slightly higher power figures.

    Mustang Mach-Es equipped with the standard-range battery and all-wheel drive will reach up to 210 miles of electric range, Ford says. On the dealer site, an increase of 11 horsepower, 11 lb-ft of torque, and 8 kW for the rear- and all-wheel-drive Standard Range models is shown, giving them 266 horsepower and 198 kW. The rear-wheel-drive model is rated at 317 lb-ft of torque and the all-wheel-drive model at 428 lb-ft.

    For the Mustang Mach-E Extended Range, which is rated at 300 miles of range for the rear-wheel-drive model, power is increased to 290 horsepower (up 8 hp), 317 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 11), and 216 kW (an increase of 6) on the rear-wheel-drive model. For the all-wheel-drive model, the power figures are increased to 346 horsepower (up 14 hp), 428 lb-ft of torque (an increase of 11), and 258 kW (an increase of 10).

    The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is available with either a standard-range 75.7-kWh battery or an extended-range 98.8-kWh pack. Both batteries provide power to an electric motor mounted on the rear or both axles.

    A Ford spokesperson contacted by Car and Driver about these new figures said only that the automaker will “share more details about Mustang Mach-E closer to launch.” There’s no word yet on the rear-wheel-drive-only California Route 1 model or a higher-performance GT, which are said to produce up to 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. They’ll arrive in early 2021.

    Several trim levels of the Mustang Mach-E will be available, including Select, Premium, California Route 1, GT, and GT Performance Edition. Ford’s first electric crossover starts at $44,995 and can reach prices over $60,000.
