With Remote Vehicle Setup on your smartphone or computer, Ford is letting Mustang Mach-E owners configure their vehicle before they ever take delivery.
The app will let customers set favorite destinations, find nearby charging stations, tweak cabin temperature settings and input commute schedules from the comfort of their own home – all before the car even arrives. Owners will be invited to create their profile a few weeks before their scheduled delivery.
Owners can create a profile, set navigation destinations, set climate control preferences and even choose a preferred drive experience. Remote Vehicle Setup configurations live in the cloud before the customer sends the profile to their Mustang Mach-E using their smart phone to apply the personalized settings.
By pre-configuring their vehicle, owners will save time in the setup process, which means they can get driving as soon as they take delivery of their vehicle. When customers collect their new Mustang Mach-E from their Ford dealer, they simply send these personal settings to their vehicle from their smartphone. After sending their preferences to the vehicle, users can manage the features configured in Remote Vehicle Setup via the FordPass App or in their vehicle.
Remote Vehicle Setup sends these settings to SYNC 4A, which uses machine learning to quickly learn drivers’ preferences, and gets even better over time thanks to advanced over-the-air updates – including a planned update that allows for personalization of radio presets before delivery.
