Latest testing has shown that the Mustang Mach-E charge time has improved by approximately 30 percent from early estimates, adding an estimated average of 100kms of range in 10 minutes using Electrify America’s DC fast charging station with extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive .
“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 84kms 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 75kms of range in 10 minutes for rear-wheel-drive models, with a 10 percent to 80 percent charge in approximately 38 minutes while charging on a DC fast charging station.
Ford and its network providers have expanded the FordPass Charging Network to include an additional 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations and 5,000 charge plugs, giving future Mustang Mach-E owners even more confidence for planning their journeys. 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, linking to the largest electric vehicle public charging network in North America.
“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.”
