FORD’S FIRST ALL-ELECTRIC CROSS OVER SET TO GO ON SALE LATE 2020
We are less than a year away from being able to take home Ford’s first all-electric crossover. The Mustang Mach-E is set to go on sale in late 2020. Designed and named after the company’s iconic pony car, the Mach-3 also pays homage to the “Mach 1” moniker that has been used on the high-performance Mustangs of old. So, why did Ford settle on that name? They needed this vehicle to be as desirable as a Tesla to usher in its new era of electric vehicles.

The past and the future collide on this electric crossover, and although it shares a name and familiar styling cues with the beloved Mustang, the Mach E otherwise is completely unrelated.

The five passenger cabin is accompanied by contemporary features and cutting-edge infotainment options. There are also some unique cargo and storage solutions.
With two available batter sizes and either rear- or all-wheel drive, the Mach E can provide up to 300 miles of driving range. While some think the electric crossover will hurt the Mustang name, Ford expects the name and design to increase interest.  

If you are wondering how you will keep this beauty charged and ready to drive Ford has released some details on that. Starting off, Ford is wrapping in 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary Electrify America DC fast charging with each 2021 Mustang Mach-E. According to Ford, that is enough for three to five full fast charges-potentially a value of hundreds of dollars at EA’s $0.99-per-minute standard rate.    

Fast-charging times have already been released. Word is that the rear-wheel drive Mach will the extended-range battery pack can recover 61 miles of range in 10 minutes via fast charging.  

The FordPass Charging Network, now includes more than 13,500 stations and close to 40,000 connectors, according to the automaker. Included in those charging networks that are part of FordPass, Electrify America claims to offer the most high-powered public charging stations.   

The company also announced that its 240-volt wallbox will be available at Ford dealers and cost $799. There is potential for the Ford Connected Charge Station to be financed with the vehicle or via FordParts.com. U.S. customers can get installation of the units and 240V outlets through an Amazon Home Services program starting later this year.

With the 48-amp wallbox you will be able to charge your Mustang Mach E with the extended-range battery pack overnight. The Mach E will come with a 240V mobile charger that will charge at a slower rate but at a rate that is considerably faster than plugging into a 120V socket. With a 240V circuit, owners can gain up to 30 miles per charging hour with the wallbox, or 21 miles per charging hour with the mobile charger.
