Ford has indicated since the day the Ford Mustang Mach-E was launched that it intends to improve the EV crossover over time, and that’s exactly what it has done.
Thanks to over-the-air updates that will extend the life cycle of various models, Mach-E owners have recently gained the ability to route electric vehicles through Apple Maps, while the entire vehicle interface will soon receive a renewal. Now, FoMoCo has announced that the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E has received an increase in towing capacity in Europe as well.
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E models with extended battery life and rear or all-wheel drive can now tow up to 1,000 kilograms, which is enough to tow a small and medium-sized fiberglass boat, the carmaker notes. .
It is unclear why Ford chose to limit Mach-E’s towing capacity in the first place, nor did it specify why.
A useful function
“The towing upgrade for the Mustang Mach-E is one of many free updates that we continue to do in hardware and software or by approval to give owners the best possible experience,” said This Woelpern, General Manager, Import. Ford of Europe. “Especially in terms of towing, it was a great example of answering customer questions, in which we checked the feasibility of an increase and were able to give them what they wanted.”
In addition to this increase in towing capacity, Mach-E has also received several other upgrades that seem to make driving with a single pedal smoother at lower speeds, “improve driver comfort” and reduce charging time between 80 -90% from 52 minutes to 15 minutes.
While these changes are good news for existing customers, getting a Ford Mustang Mach-E 2022 could prove to be a challenge for those who don’t already own one, as FoMoCo stopped receiving orders for the EV crossover last month.
In addition, Mach-E discount offers remain virtually non-existent.
