The upcoming Mustang Mach-E from Ford is one step towards making its way to buyers, with the automaker opening up for US orders.

The upcoming 2021 Mustang Mach-E is one step closer to getting its way to consumers. The automaker said on Tuesday that anyone who has already booked the EV in the US can convert their reservation to an order starting today.

Ford also confirmed in the same post the leaked specs which came out in April. All four versions of the EV feature better power and torque than originally expected. For starters, Ford says the standard RWD model range will output the equivalent of 266 horsepower and 317 pound-feet torque, up from its previous estimate of 255 horsepower and 306 pound-feet torque.

The standard AWD variant of the range, meanwhile, has 11 more horsepower. Likewise, the RWD version of the extended range will deliver 290 horsepower and 317 pound-feet torque, up from 282 horsepower and 306 pound-feet torque.

The extended range variant AWD will feature 346 horsepower and 428 pound-feet torque at the top end. Ford says this Mach-E version can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 5-and-a-half seconds.

Though modest, these improvements should help make all Mach-E versions more compelling for consumers. And that is something that Ford needs to put a dent into the recent successes of Tesla. Pricing starts at $43,895 for the Mach-E.
