The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E already offers competitive range figures that vary from 230 to 300 miles per charge, depending on the model. Those numbers also exceeded the automaker’s original estimates, including the higher-performance GT models, making the Mach-E the second-most efficient small SUV Consumer Reports has tested to date. However, as Ford Authority reported back in August, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E will offer even better range figures, which will come via an increase in usable battery capacity.
Ford Mustang Mach-E Usable Battery Capacity
|Battery||2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E||2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E|
|Standard Range||68 kWh||70 kWh|
|Extended Range||88 kWh||91 kWh|
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Standard Range features 70 kWh of usable battery capacity, up from 68 kWh for the 2021 model. Meanwhile, the Extended Range Mach-E gains even more usable capacity – 91 kWh, versus 88 kWh for the 2021 model year. This added capacity should translate to an increase in EPA range ratings, but those figures haven’t been released yet.
In addition to increasing usable battery capacity, Ford is also looking at other ways to improve the Mach-E’s range in the future, including weight reduction, improving battery efficiency, and via over-the-air updates, as Tesla has done in the past.
In addition to this range increase, the 2022 Mustang Mach-E will also be available with the new Mustang Ice White Edition Appearance Package, as Ford Authority reported in August. Also available on the 2022 Ford Mustang coupe, the package is a throwback to the limited-edition 1993 Triple White Fox Body Mustang and adds Star White Metallic Tri-Coat paint with Star White mirror caps and wheel lip moldings, an Oxford White pony badge on the front grille and between the taillights, unique 19-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with Oxford White-painted pockets, Light Space Gray seats, center console, and door-panel armrests, a Bright Silver hex-patterned instrument panel, and an Oxford White pony badge on the steering wheel.
