Since its launch for the 2021 model year, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has proven to be one of the more satisfying crossovers on the market, as well as a vehicle that’s attracting plenty of customers who are new to The Blue Oval and all-electric vehicles in general, while some have even come from the luxury segment. Mach-E owners are also more likely to embrace modern technology, which bodes well for the future and FoMoCo’s connected vehicles push. Now, the automaker has revealed some more interesting facts about the EV crossover worth digesting.
According to The Blue Oval, the average Ford Mustang Mach-E owner covers 32 miles per day of median driving, with each trip averaging around five miles – making it perfect for that particular type of use case. Prior studies have found that the majority of Americans don’t drive more than 30 miles per day, on average, so an all-electric vehicle like the Mach-E is a perfect fit in that regard.
FoMoCo also noted that 95 percent of Mach-E driver’s trips start at ambient temperatures that are above freezing, another notable statistic given the fact that EVs tend to lose a significant amount of range in cold weather. In fact, Ford previously offered up some tips to help EV owners maximize their range in cold temps for this very reason.
Looking forward, at least standard range versions of the Ford Mustang Mach-E are set to gain lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) batteries this spring, which will be supplied by CATL at first. LFP batteries don’t use nickel or cobalt in their construction, and are generally cheaper, safer, and can be charged to 100 percent without worrying about speeding up battery degradation, though they’re also not as energy dense as lithium-ion batteries. Once production begins at the BlueOval Battery Park Michigan site in 2026, the Mach-E’s LFP batteries will come from that facility, too.

all this money spent for EV’s for 30 miles average per day. grocery getter cars.
I think you missed the point – the average *American* drives 30 miles per day. Your comment could apply to *expensive* F-150 Plattys or Expeditions or…you name it. Not sure why you’ve called out EVS here….essentially it says every car, on average, is a grocery getter
You understand your cell ph one was a brick and cost thousands at first right? Well patience yada son. Wait and these too will come down unlike other things you purchase that go up! I dont know why people cant see the future like it or not. The rest of the world is moving on with or without you.
LoL the same and much more to be scorned for the dude that has the same duty cycle but does it in a diesel super duty.
That is right. Do not buy an electric vehicle. These things are a waste of time. You will have trouble fixing all of those parts. It is a complete gimmick. I can’t believe all of the people trying to promote buying an electric vehicle. Please spread the word. DO NOT BUY. You are driving me crazy by driving the demand and price up. Have a heart and wait until Ford calls me to say that my electric F15 Light Lariat is ready. Already have the Mach E, the “E” should mean excellent. It’s been weeks and still no electric F15 in the garage, WTF (what the farfegnruten). Ford needs to stop bragging and teasing. I want my eF15. Gimme it.
I own a 21 Mach E premium, 22 Mach E GTPE and 23 Bolt EUV. We use them to commute to work with an average of 40 miles per day. All 3 are charged for free (solar) and no charge for the bolt EV makes perfect for us
Well done, Jose! EV owners are the true Earth savers as we (I am one more) can get our energy from the sky for free. No more gas station visits or troubles such as car jackings or gas fires. The only expense are tires and Michelin will solve that with their UPTIS wheels.
No you are not the savior of the earth. Sure your car had no emissions now, but the mining it took to make those giant battery packs, shipping those minerals around the world. You are the furthest thing from being green. Especially with the minimal distance you’re using it, it will be 20 to 25 years before you actually start to save emissions. So NO you are not saviors of the earth, infact you’re the complete opposite. Way to virtu signal your ignorance
We’ll, it would not take that long tbh to equal the same in emissions compared to gas vehicles. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong however I believe after on average 15000km driven the emissions would be lower driving an ev. The emissions can change depending on the source of power where you live.
I’m thinking that most owners of EV’s have them as second vehicles- at least in my knock of the woods. They do make me laugh when I see them ( neighbors)at our local ski area (about 8 miles away) plugged in to the charger-
Ford is the first EV manufacturer to switch to LFP cells. One other benefit is that these cells don’t burn, so we will never see a Ford EV fire such as the hundreds of Tesla fires.
As someone who sells Fords, trust me. They go up in flames right now. Won’t be changing the batteries until 2026. Currently the production line is shut down due to battery problems. So yeah they better come up with a fix other than de tuning, look at Chevy, they’ve replaced all the batteries in votes and bolts since 2019. Wow so green.
For those of us that need a real vehicle, we’ll stick to ICE. Thank you very much.
LoL. The classic bad faith Big Oil K-street idiocy that “if it is EV it ain’t real” BS.
Well the lightning can tow for what 80 miles vs my ice truck that can tow the same trailer for 400 . Yeah I’d say the EV ain’t a real truck
If you are looking to lower your total driving costs a EV is not the way to go. First you have the extra cost of buying one, states are raising the registration fees since you don’t pay the gas tax, and you need to pay for a charger installed at home and maybe a updated panel. If you bought a same size SUV, or 4 door sedan you could save 15 to 20k. If it got 28 mpg and you saved 15k, where i live fuel is $3.07 a gallon, that can buy 4885 gallons. That many gallons will get you 136,800 miles of driving, yes you will have more service needed, but electric here is .24kwh, you have to figure in that the EV will still cost you money to charge, not everyone has solar or wants to pay for the panels. Your current EV will depreciate faster as new generations come out with faster charging, longer range and better heating systems, plus Tesla could always lower their prices again. Ford loses money on all their EVs they sell, they need ICE vehicles to sell for many more years to prop up their EV market.
Wow, lot’s of mental gymnastics to support your bias towards last century’s technology. Funny how you leave out that EVs are better cars – they drive better, they handle better, they accelerate better, they’re safer, and they save their owners many hours a year in skipped trips to the gas station. Those facts, along with the most important fact that in 10 years, you likely won’t be able to buy a new ICE vehicle, and for those who still drive them, good luck finding a gas station – they’ll mostly be out of business by then.
It’s not funny. Joe is one of the paid disinformation trolls.
There lots more assumptions and mental gymnastics in your response. There will be ice vehicles in 10 years, they can not build enough cars to replace ice vehicles by then, not even close. Your ignorant bias blinds you
It will depend on battery tech. There appears to be some sodium ion options coming around. It’s possible to be able to produce electric vehicles quicker as there are less components involved. Batteries are the headaches at the moment, chip shortages as well.
Oh god, I take a couple days away, and K-street’s old double down on stupidity DDOS Joe is throwing in every lousy disinformation kitchen sink in the bad faith scripted playbook.
Could it be that Big Oil is starting to worry more as the commodity price for lithium has come down and as more players come in the price wars are starting to happen?
Expect more outlandish gobbledygook as Big Oil lavishes cash in every media channel to try to distort reality and rational thinking.*
* Like the flowery nonsense Chevron image commercials.
Unfortunate that Ford decided to use the Mustang name for their electric vehicles at this time.
Ford Mach- E could have stood on it’s own and would have as much or more impact.
It’s a totally differeny vehicle and should have been treated that way
Or maybe Ford made the decision that the Mustang Mach E is the Actual Ford Mustang of the future. Especially since their explicit plan is to stop making ICE vehicles soon.
As a MachE owner, I’d agree with Don. The performance may live up to the Mustang moniker, but the fact that it’s a 4-door SUV makes it too much of a deviation from the Mustang heritage.
They probably would have been better reviving the name Galaxy (possibly spelled GalaxE). Otherwise, they should have left it as a 2-door to wear the Mustang badge.
Nice EV, but there wasn’t a need to carry over a somewhat controversial branding decision to make a bold statement.
LoL. Galaxy says nothing. In Europe galaxy is a minivan.
Nothing worse than hanging a nothing minivan name on a car you pivot your EV future around.
And as for your car I bet you are glad it lives up to sporty Mustang connotation than nothing minivan moniker.
Ford can have the mustang be whatever it wants it to be.
The original mustang was a cheap wheezy secretaries car with a sexy body atop a falcon chassis.
Since then it’s been many things adhering roughly to a coupe format but was almost a 4-door variant in the OG period.
Ford made decision it would speak more about the sporty character of the Mach-E to call it a Mustang than it could hurt the meaning of the coupe because in that you can see its sportiness in its form.
Every customer especially long time Mustang customers absolutely hate the facts it’s called a Mustang. We refer to it as the Mach E with looks inspired from Mustang. Even then it pisses people off. FORD really should have called it anything else other than their beloved Mustang
But, those awesome running horsey puddle lamps are the best! Especially when the car gets all lit up and excited to go, when you walk up to it! Just needs some snorting mustang noises
Despite all the criticisms, I think the Mustang Mach E has turned out far better than Ford thought it would. On a whim I bought a cancelled First Edition order in March 2021. In two years I’ve had two issues, a 12volt battery failure and a charging port failure. Both were covered under warranty and repaired at no cost to me. Check that against LandRover. Mercedes, BMW et al. This is the 45th vehicle I’ve owned. The rest of course were ICE dating back to 1957 to present. I won’t argue that EVs are for everyone. But the day will come when it’ll be your first choice.
