Some new standard features have been added to the vehicles, including the Co-Pilot360 package of electronic driver aids with adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.

"Adding Ford Co-Pilot360 Driver Assist Technology to the entire Mustang Mach-E lineup gives more customers access to services like BlueCruise hands-free driving and future ADAS services through Ford Power-Up software updates," Marin Gjaja, chief customer officer for Ford's Model e electric car division, told Automotive News.
