10-MINUTE TOP-OFF: MUSTANG MACH-E CAN ADD ESTIMATED AVERAGE 61 MILES OF DRIVING RANGE FASTER THAN YOU CAN GET A SLICE OF PIZZA
May 15, 2020 | DEARBORN, Mich.

  • Latest testing shows Mustang Mach-E charge time has improved by approximately 30 percent from early estimates, adding an estimated average of 61 miles of range in 10 minutes using Electrify America’s DC fast charging station with extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive
  • To make charging even more convenient and easier to access, FordPass Charging Network is expanding by 1,000 more charging stations and 5,000 more charge plugs for more than 13,500 stations and almost 40,000 plugs, ensuring it remains North America’s largest electric vehicle public charging network
  • Ford continues to expand both home and public charging offerings, creating a hassle-free experience for future Ford electric vehicle drivers
DEARBORN, Mich., May 15, 2020 – The all-new Mustang Mach-E can add an estimated average of 61 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes at an Electrify America DC fast charging station with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive1 – an improvement of approximately 14 miles or 30 percent versus previous estimates.

“Mustang customers love the open road and less time recharging means more time enjoying the drive,” said Mark Kaufman, Ford global director, electrification. “We’ve made it a priority to make it faster to recharge their Mustang Mach-E, and we’re continuing to work with providers to ensure even more charge points are available through FordPass to make it easier to recharge.”

The all-wheel-drive version with 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 station2.

Mustang Mach-E with standard-range battery is estimated to add an average of 46 miles of range in 10 minutes for rear-wheel-drive models1 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 station2.

Ford and its network providers have expanded the FordPass Charging Network to include an additional 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations and 5,000 charge plugs, giving future Mustang Mach-E owners even more confidence for planning their journeys. This brings the total number of charging stations and individual charge plugs in the FordPass Charging Network – easily accessible via the FordPass app3 – to more than 13,500 and almost 40,000, respectively, linking to the largest electric vehicle public charging network in North America⁴.

“We’re pleased with the continued expansion of the FordPass Charging Network and progress on DC fast charging for Mustang Mach-E ahead of its launch,” said Matt Stover, Ford director of charging, energy services and business development. “We’re continually looking at ways to improve the customer experience for all aspects of charging for future Ford all-electric vehicles, so expect more updates to come.”

Home charging made easy

Ford has made EV home charging as easy as charging a smartphone. The available 48-amp Ford Connected Charge Station will be able to charge a Mustang Mach-E in 10.1 hours or 30 miles per charging hour1,5. 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 and can add an average range of 21 miles per charging hour1,5.

With the higher-power outlet, Mustang Mach-E with extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive can go from 0 to 100 percent charge in approximately 14.1 hours1,5, while a standard 120-volt electrical outlet will result in an average range of three miles per charging hour1,5.

1* Range and charge time based on manufacturer tested values and EPA-estimated range calculation methodology. Estimated miles added are based on the first 10 minutes of charging, beginning when the vehicle begins receiving charge. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge. Actual vehicle range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age and state of health.

2* Charge time based on manufacturer tests. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge.

3* FordPass, compatible with select smartphone platforms, is available via a download. Message and data rates may apply. Ford Connect (standard on select vehicles) and complimentary Connected Service are required for remote features (see FordPass terms for details). Connected service and features depend on compatible AT&T network availability. Evolving technology/cellular networks/vehicle capability may limit functionality and prevent operation of connected features. Connected service excludes Wi-Fi hotspot.

4* Based on original equipment manufacturers/automotive manufacturers that sell all-electric vehicles and have publicly announced charging networks. Department of Energy data used. FordPass, compatible with select smartphone platforms, is available via a download. Message and data rates may apply.

5* In vehicles with the premium 300 mile extended-range configuration.

This is great news. I really wish they would list it in kWh somewhere, though. They put lots of space into miles by battery size and AWD vs RWD. Is it too much to ask for a single mention of kWh? We could guess but we don't know the latest range or efficiency specs.

This is definitely great news! It's interesting to me that the 10% to 80% times have not changed but the miles per minute on a 150kW DCFC have gone up.

Does this mean that range has increased?

Either that or the charging curve at the start is faster than estimated, followed by a faster decline. That would mean the same overall charging time but faster up front.

Personally, I hope we hear next week the range has improved!

I'm not sure to understand why a RWD would charge faster than an AWD? Why an ER would charge faster than an SR? Basically also DC fast charging current is directly apply to the battery and the battery cells are the same for both SR and ER. That can only mean that they are limited by the BMS but for which reason? Can a more knowledgeable member have answers to these questions, please? But it is all good news anyway, and I suspect we are all waiting for more range announcement.

Yeah, the announcement on the charge times doesn't make sense if you try to extrapolate for range.

using the AWD ER variant as our example...

52 miles ÷ 10 minutes = 5.2 miles per minute
5.2 miles x 45 minutes = 234 miles
If 234 miles = 70%; then 100% = 334 miles

334 miles can't possibly be right, can it??

It doesn't charge faster for RWD vs. AWD. You just go farther on the same amount of energy.

SR has a max charging power acceptance of 115kW vs 150kW for the ER.

According to Ford's spec sheet the 115kW will be for the Select trim, all the other trims are indicated with a 150kW, no mention of STR or ER for the Premium.

kWh can only be an average

All of these continuing reports of Ford exceeding the targets and projected specs are very welcome and exciting.
As long as they dont increase the price

I think that all versions with SR battery charge at 115 kw/h and all ER batteries charge at 150kw/h

They are talking about the number of miles provided in a 10 minute charge. What I’m asking is how many kWh in that 10 minute charge.

That's my initial suspicion as well but Ford specifically says it's an average over 10 minutes. So that's confusing to me.
