Ford launched a new website for the Mach E a couple of days ago. They revealed the Mach E's range and included an interactive map that allows you to plan a trip to see how far it will take you.The map also shows you where the nearest charging stations are in your area. The goal is to reduce range anxiety among customers.

According to the website the Mach E will have an EPA-estimated range of up to 300 miles (482 km), which would put it ahead of electric SUVs like the Audi e-tron (204 miles), Jaguar I-Pace (234 miles), and Tesla Model X 100D (295 miles).

Here's the link to the website so you can try out the map - https://www.ford.com/powertrains/battery-electric-vehicles/

If Ford can get 300 miles with the Mach E that will be huge! I know a few people have been really disappointed with the e-trons range for example.

Apparently their estimates were a lot higher for its range, on their website they originally put 370 miles before switching to the EPA estimate.

That's really interesting, I've never seen that big of a difference before between what a company says and what the EPA says.

I think they just got ahead of themselves trying to show how good the Mach E's range would be. I've spent more time than I'd care to admit going through the map and a 300 mile range definitely works for my commute.

So apparently that 370 mile range Ford originally put on their website is their targeted range for the European WLTP test cycle.


Late last month, we ran a story about the Ford Mach-E, or what Ford continues to refer to as the “Mustang-inspired” electric vehicle. What caught our eye and led to the story from September 20th was that in a matter of a few days, the U.S. website showing the range the Mach-E would travel per charge went from showing 370-miles to showing 300-miles.

Ford Global EV Communications Manager Emma Bergg reached out to Ford Authority not long after that story ran to say that the U.S. range for the “Mustang-inspired all-electric utility” had never changed. Bergg noted in an email to Ford Authority that the targeted range of 370-miles was based on the WLTP test cycle for Europe.

The 300-mile EPA-estimated range is what had been promised all along for the U.S., according to Bergg. We questioned the claim since the U.S. site for the vehicle had said 370 miles only a few days before we published our story, and we had the screenshots to prove it.

As it turns out, the deal with the mysterious change of driving range boils down to a possible typo on the original image that was posted to the U.S. website for the EV range estimates. Recent Mach-E rumors claim that the EV will debut at the LA Auto Show on November 19th. Rumors have also suggested that the new 2021 Ford Bronco will be making its debut around the same time. We’ve also been puzzled by a Mach-E seen leaving the GM proving grounds recently.
