It turns out that the future crossover of the American brand with a fully electric powerplant may be more powerful than the manufacturer claimed. On average, the difference can be 14 hp.

  The Ford Mustang Mach-E 2021 model year is expected to go on sale in the United States in less than a month, but this obviously depends heavily on the development of the coronavirus situation. According to leaked information from the Ford dealership, the official start of accepting orders for the new product was scheduled for May 11. Now it is reported that a fully electric crossover may be even more powerful than originally intended.

When Ford introduced the Mach-E electric crossover in November last year and its specifications were announced, it turned out that the power would be from 255 to 352 hp. for ordinary complete sets of the car. A more productive GT version will also be offered. The machine will be available with different batteries, providing a different range on a single charge, with rear and all-wheel drive. It turns out that the actual output numbers may be higher.

 Leaked images from the Ford Dealer Training site show an increase in power and torque for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E. Compared to figures released by Ford last year, some models are 14 hp more powerful.

 Options RWD Standard Range (standard battery): 266 hp (429 Nm), which is 11 hp (14 Nm) more than declared capacity. RWD Extended Range (increased battery): 290 hp (429 Nm), which is 8 hp (14Nm) more than the original values. AWD Standard Range: 266 HP (580 Nm), 11 hp (14 Nm) more AWD Extended Range: 346 hp (580 Nm), 14 hp (14 Nm) more.

 Ford spokeswoman Emma Bergg declined to comment on this information, saying: “We will share more detailed information about the Mustang Mach-E crossover closer to the start of sales.”

 So far, the only thing Ford has is pre-orders from potential customers – real orders for the new product have not yet been placed. Production is scheduled to begin this fall.
