As Ford Authority reported earlier this year, the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is gaining some usable battery capacity over the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, which will, in turn, give the EV crossover more range. The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Standard Range offers 70 kWh of usable battery capacity, up from 68 kWh for the 2021 model, while the Extended Range Mach-E gains even more usable capacity – 91 kWh, versus 88 kWh. Now, Ford has revealed how much more range these improvements result in for the 2022 Mach-E California Route 1 Edition, at least, along with some pricing info.
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 boasts 314 miles of range – 9 more miles than the 2021 model – thanks to its increase in battery capacity. However, the 2022 Mach-E is increasing in price by at least $1,000 depending on trim as well. As Ford Authority reported back in October, the 2022 Mach-E California Route 1 is also gaining optional all-wheel drive – the 2021 version was only available in a rear-wheel drive configuration.
The 2022 Mach-E will introduce a few other changes, including the addition of the new Ice White Edition Appearance Package, and is ditching its front trunk for a “drainable frunk.” Additionally, a black-painted roof is now standard on Mustang Mach-E GT and GT Performance Edition models, while Grabber Blue Metallic and Cyber Orange Metallic Tri-Coat are now available on all Mach-E models, Finally, Iced Blue Silver Metallic joins the color lineup for the 2022 model year.
Since its launch late last year, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has been a success by every measure, quickly outproducing and outselling the ICE-powered Ford Mustang, becoming profitable early in its lifecycle, and turning on dealer lots in just 12 days. Ford is on track to sell 50k Mach-Es this year, but won’t be able to fulfill all of the demand for the EV crossover, as a number of unscheduled 2021 orders are being pushed back to 2022. However, FoMoCo is now planning on ramping up Ford Mustang Mach-E production considerably over the next couple of years, to up to 200,000 units annually by 2023.
