It turns out that the Mach-E will meet the targeted range of 300 miles!

2021 MUSTANG MACH-E MEETS TARGETED EPA ESTIMATED RANGE RATINGS, HITS 300 MILES IN PREMIUM EXTENDED-RANGE RWD
NOV 23, 2020 | DEARBORN, MICH.


DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 23, 2020 – Today, Ford announced the United States Environmental Protection Agency has certified range numbers for several variants of the all-electric 2021 Mustang Mach-E.

Ford has met all its targeted EPA-estimated range ratings for variants tested by the EPA to date. The premium extended-range rear-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E meets its targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles, while the extended-range all-wheel-drive model meets its targeted EPA-estimated 270-mile range. Standard-range rear-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E meets its targeted EPA-estimated range of 230-mile, while the standard-range all-wheel-drive model exceeds its 210 miles of targeted range, with an EPA-estimated range of 211 miles.

“This validation by the EPA comes at a perfect time as the Mustang Mach-E is gearing up to take on the open road,” said Darren Palmer, global director, Battery Electric Vehicles, Ford Motor Company.

The California Route 1 has a targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles1 which will be confirmed once EPA officials complete their tests.

Customer deliveries for the Mustang Mach-E will start in December in the United States.

1Based on full charge. Targeted range applies to an available configuration. Actual range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance, lithium ion battery age and state of health.

It'll be interesting to see what the range is when taking into account my actual driving habits and the fact that I do usually drive over the speed limit on the freeway (of course just to up with the traffic flow 😜) and use my air conditioning and heating for comfort.

I'm actually a bit disappointed reading this. Here in Europe (the Netherlands specifically) Ford states it making 440km for the RWD standard. With these results it will be 230 miles = 370km. That's quite some gap.

EPA vs WLTP numbers most likely. I'm sure any estimates given in Europe were based on WLTP which typically provides a higher number.

I thought the testing methods are different between the two countries. Was the 370km published somewhere by Ford? I would think they would meet the 440km since the 230 miles remained the same.

I’ve become a master of the throttle on my hybrid. I exceed the rates EPA consistently. My commute doesn’t allow for speeds above 55. I’m lucky if I can get to 40. The roads and traffic in NYC are just miserable.

i should get excellent mileage with the MMe during the week. Its the weekend the little devil comes out....😈

Questionable to call the best range outside of Tesla lackluster.
TechCrunch has many Tesla-biased contributors. There are many other news outlets with less bias to choose from.

I also noticed the EPA rating Wh/mile are based on the full battery size, not the usable capacity allowed. Which is what the 90 MPGe reflects. (99/270=.366/mile *100= 37 kWh/100 miles)

When considering that 270 miles is based on 88 kWh usable, the MMe is actually more efficient. 88/270=.325/mile *100 = 32.5kWh/100 miles, or about 102 MPGe.

I wonder why they include the reserve?

The switch to a PHEV has resulted in a return to 'sanity' for me as a driver. I've always been a 'Gearhead' who loved horsepower and speed which has been reflected in the vehicles that I've owned and driven eg. an Andretti Formula a 60th birthday gift and the Caddy CTS V Racing school. However, since I started driving the Fusion I am more concerned with getting as close to or achieving 100% return on regenerative braking and not being the first vehicle to reach the next traffic light. EV only range and overall MPG have become the 'new challenge' so I am very excited at the prospect of experiencing the potential of a 'full' BEV and to see what the MMe is capable of on the drive around Las Vegas, and through the mountains of the I -15 corridor to California and Utah.

Ford and the EPA is using 88kwh capacity. See attachment.

Your right. This is very confusing then.
It could be that the EPA said they had to include it whether-or-not Ford made it accessible, since technically the battery is 99 kWh in size.

As you mentioned, real-world testing will be important.
