Delphi has unveiled first-to-market Mustang Mach-E -brake pads for the Mustang Mach-E, giving drivers of Ford’s all-electric model an aftermarket alternative.
The Mustang Mach-E brake pads fit the Ford all-electric model’s rear braking system, for models from 7/2020 onwards. The car was developed from the ground-up as an EV, and is Ford’s first mass-market battery-based model. It boasts a driving range of 370 miles, according to WLTP.
“We are really excited to announce the launch of our new EV brake pads,” said Carl Lester, Global Product Line Manager at Delphi. “Delphi EV brake pads have been engineered to provide instant friction and exceptional braking performance straight from the box.”
Mustang Mach-E brake pads development
Delphi carried out extensive research and development into OE-quality EV-specific brake friction materials and found a wide range of wear characteristics, which have helps their development of its Mustang Mach-E brake pads.
Most electrified vehicles can provide sufficient braking power through the electric motor alone to slow it in the majority of daily-driving scenarios. However, Delphi says regenerative braking has given rise to an entirely new problem.
“Friction braking is self-cleaning but because hydraulic brakes are essentially a back-up system on electric vehicles, they are used much less often,” said Carl. “With less use, rust and contaminants can quickly build-up, affecting both the disc’s friction surface, the pad mounting, and the caliper piston/slider pins.”
