Mustang Mach-E: Quicker Charges Than Getting Pizza

OK, I poked a little fun at the Ford PR people when they filled the front of the all-electric Mach-E with shrimp and chicken wings.

Seems the Blue Oval folks are a little obsessed with food. It now says you can add 61 miles of range to the Mustang Mach-E faster than ordering a slice of pizza. And just how fast is that? Approximately 10 minutes.

Here’s how Ford explains it. It says the Mustang Mach-E can add an estimated average of 61 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes at an Electrify America DC fast charging station when equipped with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive. That’s an improvement of approximately 14 miles (or 30 percent) versus previous numbers.

“Mustang customers love the open road and less time recharging means more time enjoying the drive,” said Mark Kaufman, Ford global director, electrification. “We’ve made it a priority to make it faster to recharge their Mustang Mach-E, and we’re continuing to work with providers to ensure even more charge points are available through FordPass to make it easier to recharge.”

The all-wheel-drive version with extended-range battery is estimated to add an average of 52 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes as well. Both all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations are estimated to achieve a 10 percent to 80 percent charge in approximately 45 minutes while charging on a DC fast charging station.

Mustang Mach-E with standard-range battery is estimated to add an average of 46 miles of range in 10 minutes for rear-wheel-drive models and 42 miles for all-wheel-drive models, with a 10 percent to 80 percent charge in approximately 38 minutes while charging on a DC fast charging station.

FordPass

Ford continues efforts to expand its charging network. The automaker says it’s added 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations to the FordPass Charging Network along with 5,000 charge plugs. This brings the total number of charging stations and individual charge plugs in the FordPass Charging Network to more than 13,500 and almost 40,000, respectively.

FordPass Charging Network

“We’re pleased with the continued expansion of the FordPass Charging Network and progress on DC fast charging for Mustang Mach-E ahead of its launch,” said Matt Stover, Ford director of charging, energy services and business development. “We’re continually looking at ways to improve the customer experience for all aspects of charging for future Ford all-electric vehicles, so expect more updates to come.”

Drivers can access the network via the FordPass app.

Home Charging

Being able to charge at home is also a key element of Ford’s electric vehicle plans. Ford says an available 48-amp Ford Connected Charge Station will be able to charge a Mustang Mach-E in 10.1 hours or 30 miles per charging hour. Every Ford all-electric vehicle will come standard with a Ford mobile charger, which is capable of charging on a higher-voltage 240-volt electrical outlet and can add an average range of 21 miles per charging hour.

With the higher-power outlet, Mustang Mach-E with extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive can go from 0 to 100 percent charge in approximately 14.1 hours, while a standard 120-volt electrical outlet will result in an average range of three miles per charging hour.
