After Ford’s promise that the Mustang Mach-E Extended Range RWD model would have a range of 300 miles on one charge, while the Standard Range AWD model was projected to hit 210 miles, we now have official EPA ratings. The EPA has officially confirmed the targeted values for the entire current Mustang Mach-E range.
While the Extended Range RWD version lived up to its potential by achieving its projected range of 300 miles, the Standard Range AWD model overachieved just slightly with a 211 mile rating on a single charge.
As for the Extended Range AWD model, its range will drop from 300 miles to 270 miles in part due to the added weight of the second motor as well as the extra traction. The Standard Range RWD also achieved its target with an official EPA range rating of 230 miles.
It appears that the only difference in Ford’s projections is the one extra mile achieved by the Standard Range AWD model. With the officially range ratings confirmed by the EPA, Ford’s Global Director of Battery Electric Vehicles, Darren Palmer, said: “This validation by the EPA comes at a perfect time as the Mustang Mach-E is gearing up to take on the open road.”
The Mustang Mach-E is the first all-electric car from the ground up that we have seen from Ford and deliveries are expected to start in the U.S. before the year is over. Check out all the EPA ratings released today compared to Ford’s previous targets:
