Ford says the latest testing shows the charge time of its new Mustang Mach-E has improved by approximately 30 percent from early estimates. This adds an estimated average of 61 miles of range using Electrify America’s DC fast charging station.
Ford and its network providers have also announced an expansion of the FordPass Charging Network to include an additional 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations and 5,000 charge plugs. This brings the total number of charging stations and individual charge plugs in the FordPass Charging Network
Mark Kaufman, Ford global director, electrification, says: “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.”
Matt Stover, Ford director of charging, energy services and business development, adds: “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. 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.”
Ford says every one of its 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 hour
