Ford also added 1,000 sites to its charging network, bringing the total over 13,500 locations.
The rear-drive, extended-range Ford Mustang Mach-E will be able to regain 61 miles of range after just 10 minutes of recharging at one of Electrify America’s DC fast-charging stations. According to the Blue Oval, this figure is 30 percent quicker than the company's early estimates.
It's important to note that DC fast chargers are not currently available at all Electrify America locations. As of February 2020, the company had 400 of these stations in the United States.

For other variants of the Mach-E, the version with the all-wheel-drive powertrain and extended-range battery achieves 52 miles of range in 10 minutes. With the standard battery, the rear-drive electric crossover can add 46 miles in that time, and the all-wheel version manages 38 miles after the same amount of charging.
"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," Mark Kaufman, Ford global director of electrification, said the announcement in the charging time.
The FordPass Charging Network has expanded to include 1,000 more sites, and these means there are 5,000 more plugs where future Mach-E owners can top up their EV. The total network now totals over 13,500 locations. If you're curious if there is a location near you, the Blue Oval has an interactive map that allows for seeing the availability of chargers along a route.
For recharging at home, Ford will offer a 48-amp system that will be able to top up the Mach-E in 10.1 hours.
Ford recently delayed the launch of the Mach-E because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, production starts in June or July, rather than May. Deliveries to customers would start two to three months after assembly begins.
10-Minute Top-Off: Mustang Mach-E Can Add Estimated Average 61 Miles of Driving Range Faster Than You Can Get a Slice of Pizza

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.

1 Range and charge time based on manufacturer tested values and EPA-estimated range calculation methodology. Estimated miles added are based on the first 10 minutes of charging, beginning when the vehicle begins receiving charge. The charging rate decreases as battery reaches full capacity. Your results may vary based on peak charging times and battery state of charge. Actual vehicle range varies with conditions such as external elements, driving behaviors, vehicle maintenance, and lithium-ion battery age and state of health.
