Ford Mustang Mach-E Can Add 61 Miles Of Range In Just 10 Minutes Of Charging

Sponsored

Probably the biggest gripe about electric vehicles that also serves as a major roadblock to major adoption is their inability to charge quickly. While there are some exceptions today, most EVs take hours to go from a low battery charge to a full charge. That’s a valid concern for anyone, especially those that tend to drive longer distances in one fell swoop. But Ford Mustang Mach-E owners will have an ace up their sleeve in that regard, as the automaker just revealed.

Mustang Mach-E owners in need of a quick charge can swing their Ford Mustang Mach-E into an Electrify America DC fast charging station and add an estimated average of 61 miles of range in a mere 10 minutes (for extended-range, rear-wheel drive models). That represents an improvement of approximately 14 miles, or 30 percent, compared to previous estimates.

Meanwhile, the all-wheel-drive Ford Mustang Mach-E with the 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 models equipped with the standard-range battery are 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.

Of course, most customers will do the majority of their charging at home, and Ford has made this process relatively easy, too. The 48-amp Ford Connected Charge Station will be able to fully charge a Mustang Mach-E in 10.1 hours, or 30 miles per charging hour.

What’s more, 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, adding an average range of 21 miles per charging hour. With the higher-power outlet, the rear-wheel-drive, extended-range Mustang Mach-E can go from 0 to 100 percent charge in approximately 14.1 hours. The slowest way to charge is using the standard 120-volt electrical outlet, which will net an average range of three miles per charging hour.

Ford and its charging network partners have expanded the FordPass Charging Network to include an additional 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations and 5,000 charge plugs across the nation. 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.

And for those that are still a little hesitant to take their Ford Mustang Mach-E on a long road trip, Ford has created an interactive map to will help them find the nearest charging stations on the FordPass network along their route.

Thankfully, it seems that Ford is going the extra mile to minimize range anxiety among Ford Mustang Mach-E owners. And that’s going to be extremely important The Blue Oval hopes to grab a significant part of the market in this still-nascent, yet growing segment.

    Currently drive a nonplug-in hybrid car. My main concern will be how much longer time traveling 1000 miles will an electric vehicle ad to my current hybrid to get to my destination. My hybrid takes 15 minutes to refill to travel near 500 miles with 13.5 gallon tank. Very seldom have a refill line mainly because other gasoline vehicles are in & out within 15 minutes. Will there be a long waiting line at plug-in stations? Will plug-in stations limit time plugged-in to avoid hours for each electric vehicle full charge? If so, then more stops to short charge.

      All good questions that illustrate the roadblocks to widespread EV adoption.

      I also have a hybrid (2014 Fusion Hybrid), but I never travel over 50 miles a day. One tank lasts over a month. The issue isn’t range or charge facilities, but if a pure EV is what your lifestyle can use. If you want to drive an EV, then drive less, move closer, and do more online. That will save thousands of dollars in gas and maintenance. But if you like to drive long distances, just get a Ford hybrid and leave the EV to better drivers.

        And that’s the problem, Raymond. People shouldn’t have to adapt their lifestyles to EVs. It should be the other way around.

        Now, the majority of car buyers don’t drive long enough distances to use a full charge in a single drive… but there are some who do. Until an EV can fully recharge in about 30 minutes or less, their adoption will continue to be very limited.

    15 Minutes to fill a 13.5 gallon tank?? Not sure how slow your filler neck is on the brand of vehicle you are driving, but my 2002 Ford Explorer with a 21 gallon tank takes 7 minutes maybe 10 minutes at a slow pump, with the insertion of a credit card at the pump.

      I think he’s counting the time between signalling his exit from the expressway to re-engaging cruise control after returning.to the highway. Not unreasonable.

    If the 48-amp Ford Connected Charge Station uses 240 VAC at a 60 A circuit, my home is ready. i have a spare (unused ) 50 A breaker, and I can replace it with a 60 A and new wiring in one day.
