The Mustang Mach-E’s ABS is being updated. This is after the ADAC repeated Teknikens Värld’s Moose test results where Mach-E failed.
In Teknikens Värld I Ford Mustang Mach-E AWD Long Range . TestingPublished in Issue 22/2021 Went to the woods for the new Ford electric car – Anyway, in terms of how it performed in the dribbling maneuver test. The heavy all-wheel drive car with an actual weight of 2,270 kg with really strong back throws appeared at low speeds. In other words, classic and alarmingly slippery.
It soon became apparent to us that the ABS wasn’t working at all enough to give the heavy vehicle a safe panic-maneuvering behaviour. The brief comment on the result of the Moose test result at Teknikens Värld 22/2021 was very clear: “This is far from the approved behavior of a modern car in 2021 and I need more than a look at Hyundai Ioniq 5 And Tesla Model Y Let’s see how far behind Ford. “
Germany’s ADAC (Europe’s largest car owners’ organization with 21 million members, according to Wikipedia), we’ve since run our own tests similar tests, with similar results. He even went on the ADAC tests Mustang Mac E They were overtaken and it was clear even to them that the car in question was very prone to skidding. everything according to their articleIt was published on November 11 this year. Ford responded by announcing changes to the anti-lock system.
This has now been confirmed by Jay Ward, Director of Product Communications, Ford Europe, to the tech world.
“I can confirm we’ve made changes to the ESC (Anti-Skid System, Editor’s Note) settings for the Ford Mustang Mach-E,” says Jay Ward.
When will these changes reach production?
Those changes are already in production, says Jay Ward.
How will you act towards customers of cars already sold?
Changes will also be provided for these cars. First by letting car owners go to their dealer, then an OTA update will be available in a few months, says Jay Ward.
The update is very welcome, but we don’t run the risk until we test the updated version. Exactly when that can happen, we’ll be back to. First, a car must be provided, but what is worse – we need dry asphalt. Unfortunately there is a shortage this year. But we’ll get back to the case once we know something more.
– We can now confirm that the measure will be available at retailers from the beginning of December and will be available as an over-the-air update at the beginning of 2022, Jay Ward told Teknikens Värld.
Moreover, it is now clear that Teknikens Värld will be able to test the same previously tested Ford Mustang Mach-E, but in a stable version, once the vehicle is returned to Sweden and weather forces allow the tests to take place.
