The Ford Mustang Mach-E is only a year old, and yet, FoMoCo has already begun tweaking its all-electric crossover with an eye toward improving its efficiency. The automaker is taking a “continuous improvement” approach with the EV, choosing to implement changes whenever they’re available instead of waiting for a refresh or redesign. Now, the official 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E EPA ratings have been revealed, giving us concrete data as to how much the model has improved in that regard, year-over-year.
|Model/Trim Level||2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E||2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E||2022 +/-|
|Standard Range Battery (Select/Premium)||247 miles||230 miles||17 miles|
|Extended Range Battery (Premium)||303 miles||300 miles||3 miles|
|California Route 1 Extended Range||314 miles||305 miles||9 miles|
|Standard Range Battery (Select, Premium)||224 miles||211 miles||13 miles|
|Extended Range Battery (Premium)||277 miles||270 miles||7 miles|
|California Route 1 Extended Range||312 miles||-||-|
|GT||270 miles||270 miles||0 miles|
|GT Peformance||260 miles||260 miles||0 miles|
Every 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E model gains some sort of range for the new model year, save for the GT and GT Performance. These improvements range from 3 miles for rear-wheel-drive Premium models with the Extended Range battery to 7 miles for the same model in all-wheel drive, 9 miles for California Route 1 (which wasn’t available in all-wheel drive in 2021), 13 miles for the all-wheel drive Standard Range Battery (Select, Premium), and 17 miles for the Standard Range Battery (Select/Premium). However, the California Route 1 in rear-wheel drive remains the distance champ with 314 miles of EPA estimated range.
As Ford Authority previously reported, FoMoCo managed to extract this extra bit of range from the Mach-E by increasing its usable battery capacity, though that improvement won’t be available on 2021 models. These improvements should be enough to help the Mach-E retain its position as the second most efficient EV crossover behind only the Tesla Model Y Long Range, though a number of new competitors will make that a tougher task moving forward.
