DEARBORN, Michigan, June 15, 2020 – Ford Mustang Mach-E owners will receive 250 kilowatt hours of free charging via FordPass Rewards at Electrify America1 fast charging stations to start their electric vehicle experience with Ford.
For owners of Mustang Mach-E with the extended autonomy battery, the 250 kilowatt hours of fast-charge energy is equivalent to more than three recharges. For standard range battery models, the 250 2 kilowatt hours of fast charge energy corresponds to more than five recharges. This is in addition to the two years of free access that Mustang Mach-E customers automatically receive from the recently expanded FordPass charging network for easy-to-use charging as they go. The FordPass charging network is the largest public charging network in North America with more than 13,500 charging stations and nearly 40,000 individual outlets.
The Electrify America network, part of the FordPass Charging Network, offers the largest number of high-power public charging stations on the market today.
“One of the main opportunities we have is to educate our potential customers on preparing for road trips,” said Matt Stover, director of pricing, energy services and business development at Ford. “The 250 kilowatt hours of free recharging that we offer via FordPass Rewards and the FordPass charging network with Electrify America will give our Mustang Mach-E customers confidence in their ability to plan trips, regardless of their destination.”
Using DC quick chargers from Electrify America, the Mustang Mach-E with rear-wheel drive and extended-range battery can add about 61 miles of range in about 10 minutes. It is estimated that all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive configurations can achieve 10 to 80% load in about 45 minutes.
“Exciting new electric vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E will help new customers choose to drive on electricity,” said Giovanni Palazzo, President and CEO of Electrify America. “We are proud that Ford electric vehicles are taking advantage of Electrify America’s rapidly expanding DC fast charger national network so that the anxiety of autonomy will soon disappear.”
Simplified home charging
The majority of vehicle recharges being carried out at home, the Ford Connected Charge Station domestic wall box is now available, with prices starting at $ 799 MSRP, excluding taxes. To purchase, customers can call or visit a Ford certified electric vehicle dealer to order the home wallbox and have it delivered before their vehicle arrives. Customers can also order the wallbox on FordParts.com and have it delivered before 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 has also partnered with Amazon Home Services to offer the installation of home charging configurations 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 Charging Station option, they will be able to see the initial price estimates and book and plan a licensed and approved online electrician.
Ford has made recharging electric vehicles at home as simple as charging a phone. The available Ford 48-amp Connected Charging Station will be able to easily charge a Mustang Mach-E equipped with rear-wheel drive with an extended-range battery overnight. Each fully electric Mach-E will come standard with a Ford mobile charger, which is capable of charging on a 240 volt electrical outlet at higher voltage.
