Ford’s all-electric SUV hasn’t even hit the market, yet engineers working on the Mach-E managed to squeeze out some extra horses and overall performance before its late 2020 launch. 

As the chief engineer on the project puts it, “These better-than-estimated performance figures show that our team is squeezing every last bit of performance out of this vehicle so that it not only delivers Mustang style but Mustang soul as well.”

Expect about a 4% increase in 2021 Mach-E horsepower

Here’s a look at the new numbers for the main Mach-E drivetrain setups, versus the originally anticipated figures. Overall, a healthy bump in ponies at around 4-percent.
