May 15, 2020—Ford is bringing over-the-air (OTA) updates to its upcoming electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, reported CNETThe first updates could come within six months of the car's production.

The updates will occur without the owner even noticing and will provide the vehicle with features it didn't have when it first left the factory. 

Improvements could range from Sync updates for infotainment purposes or to one of the numerous computers onboard the Mustang Mach-E. Almost every single computer accepts wireless updates, according to the report.

Tesla has been considered one of the automakers to start offering these updates, but that is not the case anymore. General Motors has also planned to roll out this capability in 2020. 

Now, repairers might be seeing some of the repairs they could perform, being sent out over a software update to the car. On the other hand, the updates do open the door for updates done wrong that could be equivalent to a repairer performing a faulty repair.
