Ford To Offer Over-The-Air Updates With The New Mustang Mach-E

New Ford Mustang Mach-E will be OTA update-enabled; this was a necessary move.


  • SYNC and performance updates will be possible.

  • Most redesigned Ford products, starting in 2020, will be OTA update-enabled.

  • First updates for the Mach-E already planned to occur within six months of the first deliveries.


Being connected goes beyond infotainment and real-time navigation in 2020. Over-the-air updates have become a must-have for most new vehicles at this point in the century and Ford wisely has included this seamless way of keeping its customers content with the all-new electric Mustang Mach-E SUV.

The beauty of this technology is that it is all but completely invisible. Owners will be able to select a regular time for the updates to occur, such as midnight when plugged and parked. Some of these updates will require no more than two minutes to be completed.

John Vangelov, connected services manager, Ford Motor Company, said: “The beauty of the Mustang Mach-E is that what our customers experience on day one is just the beginning – it will evolve to add even more features and capabilities over time. Our clever over-the-air updates also minimize downtime through incredibly fast activation and ensure your Mustang Mach-E is always getting better, even when you’re asleep.”

While updates to onboard technologies such as the SYNC infotainment will be welcomed, it’s the possibility of receiving performance enhancements that has us more excited. Tesla began doing this years ago and every update sparks interest and anticipation – the same will surely occur with Mach-E owners and enthusiasts.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Lands In Showrooms Later This Year

The first updates are expected to come roughly six months after the first Mach-Es are delivered. Production should start later this year so we’ll be seeing these improvements before next summer.
