It’s official, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is here, and this is the automaker’s first production-bound electric Mustang as well as the first Mustang crossover. This model will be offered in two lithium-ion battery pack options: standard range and extended range. The former uses a 75.7-kilowatt-hour, 288-cell pack that sends power to a large rear motor, while the extended-range option comes equipped with a larger 98.8-kilowatt-hour battery pack with 376 cells, sending power to both a motor at the front axle and rear. This means certain trims equipped with the optional extended range battery pack will be good for 300 miles per charge. Read more for two videos, additional pictures and information.
The standard-range model with the smaller battery pack and rear-wheel-drive offer a 230 mile range, while the same battery pack on the all-wheel-drive model decreases that figure to 210 miles. However, the all-wheel-drive models with extended-range batteries ups their range to 270 miles. Ford guarantees customers access to 75 percent of all charging stations in the U.S., which is approximately 12,500 stations and 35,000 individual plugs.
Every buyer of a Mach-E gets access to a massive charging network using FordPass Charging Network, with the ability to recharge up to 47 miles in just 10 minutes with a maximum 150-kilowatt DC fast charging rate. A Ford Mobile Charger comes standard with the purchase of any Mach-E, and when plugged into a standard 120-volt outlet, the home charger trickles an estimated range of about three miles each hour. Using the Ford Mobile Charger on a more-powerful 240-volt outlet will get you up to 22 miles of range per hour. An optional Ford Connected Charge Station, when plugged into a 240-volt outlet, the higher-powered, 48-amp option, yields approximately 32 miles of range each hour
Just how powerful is a top-of-the-line spec? Well, the Mach-E GT Performance generates 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque, good for a 0-60 miles per hour time of about 3.5 seconds. Pricing for the Mach-E will range between $40,000 to the mid-$60,000s, with the Premium and First Edition trims going on sale next year.
