Ford has revealed that their latest rounds of testing show that the Mach-E can get 61 miles of range with 10 minutes of charging with Electrify America’s DC fast charging station. The specify that this applies to the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive Mach-E.

They say it's an improvement of approximately 14 miles or 30 percent versus previous estimates.


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.

This Mustang Mach-E vs Tesla charge speed comparison reveals some interesting stats.

  • "During Ford's test at an Electrify America DC fast-charging station, the Mustang Mach-E with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive replenished 61 miles of range in 10 minutes, the automaker said. Tesla's claim for its V3 Supercharger is that "a Model 3 Long Range operating at peak efficiency can recover up to 75 miles of charge in five minutes." With an all-wheel drive Mach-E, Ford saw 52 miles replenished in the same amount of time. In 10 minutes, cars with the standard-range battery were good for 46 miles in rear-wheel drive and 42 miles with all-wheel drive.
  • The base Select model is capable of up to 115 kW of fast-charging capability, while all other Mustang Mach-E models will go to 150 kW. Porsche is currently the leader with its 350-kW fast charging. The Tesla Model 3 and Model Y can charge at 250 kW, while the S and X are limited to 150 kW. When we took our long-term 2019 Model 3 Long Range to a 250-kW Tesla Supercharger, we saw a peak of around 201 kW—but we didn't precondition the battery."

There is no magic in a Tesla, other than Elon’s decision to throw out industry-standards when developing his EV tech.
Its hard to compare a vehicle charging at 250-kW vs one charging at 150-kW. Of course its going to get more charge, and therefore more miles, in the same amount of time.
Had there been a publicly-accessible charging network at 250-kW, Ford and other manufacturers would have built their vehicles accordingly. But the Ford network in the US consists of 13,500+ Industry-Standard public charging stations that are, for the most part, 150-kW or less. Thats just what’s out there at this time.
Ford could have configured the battery to charge at 350-kW (the next level of industry-standard) and would have beat the Tesla. But all the extra copper, components and battery-cell complexity needed would have raised the cost of the vehicle too much. And there aren’t that many charging stations that have 350-kW anyway.

I am okay with the reported charging speeds. Fast-charging is fine for my needs. I went in knowing this, as does every other shopper of non-tesla vehicles.
