One of the best features of a Tesla vehicle is its ability to actually get better over time, thanks to over-the-air (OTA) software updates.

When Ford releases their first all-electric vehicle, the Mustang Mach-E later this year, it too will be equipped with ability to update over time. Ford’s connected services manager, John Vangelov, said in a press release:

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.

Ford says the software updates will provide both performance updates and also deliver new features to the car that weren’t available at launch.

Depending on the specifics of the update, some will only be available over WiFi, while others can take place using the vehicle’s built-in cellular connection.

The automaker also says many updates will be completed “almost instantly” after the vehicle starts up, while others will require more time and can be scheduled for when it is convenient.

Canadian prices for the Mustang Mach-E are in the range of $50,495CDN for the lowest ‘Select’ model, to $71,995CDN for the now sold-out 1st Edition.
