Mustang Mach-E Charge Time Improved by 30 Percent

The all-new 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 with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive - an improvement of approximately 14 miles or 30 percent versus previous estimates.
"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." For further information see the IDTechEx report on Charging Infrastructure for Electric Vehicles 2020-2030.
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 models1 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.
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 - easily accessible via the FordPass app - 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."
Home charging made easy
Ford has made EV home charging as easy as charging a smartphone. The 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.
