Software Update Available…. Ford Mach-E will update wirelessly in the background
Owners of the all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E won’t need to experience the fear of not being up to date, thanks to over-the-air updates continuously improving the car over the vehicle’s life without having to visit a dealership.
Unlike many other cars that require owners to wait while a software update takes place, Ford has developed a way to allow secure updates to download in the background, and in some cases, can be completed in under two minutes.
Much like your smart phone, the Mustang Mach-E will evolve to add even more features and capabilities over time. Over-the-air updates also minimize downtime through incredibly fast activation and ensure the Mustang Mach-E is always up to date.
These improvements go way beyond SYNC® updates. Nearly all Mach-E computer modules can be updated wirelessly, meaning Ford can deliver performance enhancements and entirely new features that might not exist when customers first take delivery of their vehicles.
Some installations will be virtually invisible to customers, who can select a regular time – such as the middle of the night – for updates while their Mach-E is parked. Many updates will be completed almost instantly after a customer starts their vehicle, while in-vehicle alerts will tell them what improvements have been installed.
Many can be completed in under two minutes, and more complex updates that might require the vehicle to be parked for longer can be scheduled to take place when customers find it most convenient.
Ford expects to deliver its first updates within six months after the first Mustang Mach-E vehicles are with customers. Owners will receive notifications detailing the software updates when they are available, which can then be applied using either Wi-Fi or cellular connections, depending on the update.
