Ford’s latest testing shows that the all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E is estimated to add an average of 119 km (73 miles) driving range within approximately 10 minutes of charging when using an IONITY charging station.
Real-world tests delivered the estimated improvement of 26 km (16 miles) driving range or nearly 30 per cent compared with previous, more conservative computer-simulated estimates for the Mustang Mach-E in extended-range battery, rear-wheel drive (RWD) configuration.
“Mustang customers love the open road, and less time recharging means more time enjoying the drive,” said Mark Kaufman, Global Director, Electric Vehicles. “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 make even more charge points available through FordPass to make it easier to recharge.”
The all-wheel drive (AWD) model is estimated to add an average of 107 km (66 miles) of charge within approximately 10 minutes, both AWD and RWD configurations are estimated to achieve a 10 per cent to 80 per cent charge in 45 minutes.
The standard-range battery in the Mustang Mach-E is estimated to charge an average of 91 km (56 miles) in 10 minutes for RWD and 85 km (52 miles) for AWD models, with a 10 per cent to 80 per cent charge in 38 minutes.
Mustang Mach-E’s targeted pure-electric driving range of up to 600 km (more than 370 miles) according to the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) will help ensure customers can undertake longer journeys confidently.
In Europe, Mustang Mach-E vehicles will be backed by the industry-leading Ford Charging Solutions ecosystem that will deliver seamless, integrated access to charging at home and across Europe.
Earlier this year, Ford of Europe President Stuart Rowley called on governments, industries and institutions to support the push for electrification with faster expansion of public charging infrastructures. At the same time, the company committed to and is progressing plans to introduce 1,000 charging stations at Ford facilities across Europe during the next three years to make charging simple and convenient for employees.
The all-electric Mustang Mach-E spearheads a rapidly expanding Ford electrified vehicle range and is one of 18 new electrified vehicles the company is introducing to Europe before the end of 2021.
