The company is also beginning sales of its wallbox charger.
Buyers of the Ford Mustang Mach-E will get 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary recharging through the Electrify America network. This will be enough to give owners three to five full DC fast charges, depending on the battery that the customer orders.
"The 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging we’re offering through FordPass Rewards and the FordPass Charging Network with Electrify America will give our Mustang Mach-E customers confidence in their ability to plan trips, no matter their destination," Matt Stover, Ford director of charging, energy services, and business development, said in the announcement of the complimentary charging.
Ford is also announcing that its Connected Charge Station home wallbox is now available for $799. The company reports that the tech can perform an overnight recharge of the extended-range battery for a rear-wheel-drive Mach-E. Interested buyers can order it from a Ford dealership and have the installation complete before their Mach-E arrives. Later this year, the company will also offer the wallbox through Amazon Home Services that will let them buy the charger and schedule installation.

The Mach-E will go on sale in the United States before the end of the year. The Premium and First Edition trims will be the first to be available. The Premium will be available with the standard and extended-range batteries, in addition to either rear- or all-wheel drive. The First Edition will come exclusively with the larger battery and all-wheel drive.
Ford recently had to delay the introduction of the Mach-E to some markets in Europe until early 2021, rather than the original plan of having them ready in 2020. The closures surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic forced the automaker to push back the model's launch.

DEARBORN, Mich., June 15, 2020 – Ford Mustang Mach-E owners will receive 250 kilowatt- hours of complimentary charging through FordPass Rewards at Electrify America fast-charging stations1 to kick-start their electric vehicle experience with Ford.
For Mustang Mach-E owners with the extended-range battery, the 250 kilowatt-hours of fast-charging energy is equal to more than three fill-ups. For standard-range battery models, the 250 2 kilowatt-hours of fast charging energy is equal to more than five fill-ups . This is in addition to the two years of complimentary access Mustang Mach-E customers automatically receive to the recently expanded FordPass Charging Network for easy pay-as-you-go charging. The FordPass Charging Network is North America’s largest public charging network with more than 13,500 charging stations and almost 40,000 individual plugs.
Electrify America’s network, part of the FordPass Charging Network, offers the largest number of high-powered public charging stations on the market today.
“One of the main opportunities we have is educating our potential customers about road trip readiness,” said Matt Stover, Ford director of charging, energy services and business development. “The 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging we’re offering through FordPass Rewards and the FordPass Charging Network with Electrify America will give our Mustang Mach-E customers confidence in their ability to plan trips, no matter their destination.”
Using Electrify America’s DC fast chargers, rear-wheel-drive-equipped Mustang Mach-E with an extended-range battery can add an estimated 61 miles of range in approximately 10 minutes. Both all-wheel-drive and rear-wheel-drive configurations are estimated to be able to achieve a 10 percent to 80 percent charge in approximately 45 minutes.
“Exciting new electric vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E will help drive new customers to choose to drive electric,” said Giovanni Palazzo, president and CEO of Electrify America. “We’re proud to have Ford electric vehicles take advantage of Electrify America’s growing nationwide DC fast- charger network to help range anxiety soon be a thing of the past.”
Home charging made easy
With the majority of vehicle charging occurring at home, Ford’s Connected Charge Station home wallbox is now available, with prices starting at $799 MSRP, excluding taxes. To buy it, customers can call or visit an electric vehicle-certified Ford dealership to order the home wallbox and have it delivered before their vehicle arrives. Customers also can order the wallbox on FordParts.com and have it delivered ahead of their vehicle – or they can order and finance the home wallbox with a Mustang Mach-E purchase later this year for delivery with the vehicle.
Ford also has teamed up with Amazon Home Services to offer installation of home charging setups later this year. Whether Ford customers need a 240-volt outlet installed for use with the standard Ford Mobile Charger or choose the Ford Connected Charge Station option, they will be able to see upfront pricing estimates and book and schedule a licensed and vetted electrician online.
Ford has made electric vehicle home charging as easy as charging a phone. The available 48- amp Ford Connected Charge Station will be able to easily charge a rear-wheel-drive-equipped Mustang Mach-E with extended-range battery overnight . Every all-electric Mach-E will come standard with a Ford Mobile Charger, which is capable of charging on a higher-voltage 240-volt electrical outlet.
