2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E: Official EPA Range Figures are Here

Ford improved the useable battery capacity for the 2022 Mustang Mach-E, which gives it more range than before

  • The 2022 Mach-E gets more range than before

  • This is due to improvements in the battery’s useable capacity

  • The California Route 1 version, the longest range model, is now available with AWD

The Ford Mustang Mach-E receives a more efficient battery for 2022, which grants it more range than before.

Two batteries are available in the Mach-E: a 75.7 kWh pack in the Short Range (SR) models and a 98.8 kWh pack in the Extended Range (ER) versions.

This number hasn’t changed over last year but the useable capacity has been improved by 2 or 3 kWh depending on the battery, which makes the actual capacity 70 kWh for the smaller pack and 91 kWh for the larger one, compared to 68 kWh and 88 kWh previously.

This small increase makes for a longer range, with the shortest-range version, the Select SR AWD, now offering 360 kilometers (224 miles), which is an improvement of 21 kilometers (13 miles).

Removing AWD from this model improves the range to 397 kilometers (247 miles), which is up 27 kilometers (17 miles) from last year.

The Premium ER versions are equipped with the larger battery and are able to drive up to 488 kilometers (303 miles) on a single charge for the RWD version, or 446 kilometers (277 miles) with AWD. This is an increase of 5 kilometers (3 miles) and 11 kilometers (7 miles) respectively.

The GT models are the most performance-oriented versions of the Mach-E and despite also receiving the more efficient batteries, the range figures have not been impacted, staying at 434 kilometers (270 miles) for the GT ER AWD and 418 kilometers (460 miles) for the GT Performance ER AWD.

The longest range possible in a 2022 Mustang Mach-E is achieved by the California Route 1 Edition ER RWD, which can now go 505 kilometers (314 miles) on a charge, an improvement of 14 kilometers (9 miles). New for this year, this version can be had with a second motor that gives it AWD in exchange for a slightly lower range, at 502 kilometers (312 miles).

Despite the improvements in efficiency, the Mustang Mach-E is still in the middle of the pack when comparing EVs by the number of watthours they need to drive a mile. However, since it has large batteries, it is able to remain among the longest range EVs on the market.
