Ford Mustang Mach-E Intelligent Range Technology Aims To More Accurately Estimate Remaining Range

Factors such as past driving behavior, date from other Mustang Mach-E vehicles, and weather will be factored into the range calculation

  • Ford Mustang Mach-E EV technology will more accurately estimate range

  • Over-the-air capability will add other variables to the calculation including traffic conditions and elevation

  • Ford Roadside Assistance will be available to tow a vehicle that has run out of battery power


Ford Intelligent Range technology aims to reduce the range anxiety associated with electric vehicles in its upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E.

The system will calculate a range of factors to more accurately predict the remaining range of electric power. Variables such as past driving behavior, weather conditions (how cold or hot it is outside), and information coming from other Mustang Mach-E vehicles will factor in the calculation.

In other words, the Mustang Mach-E’s Intelligent Range system will learn over time and adjust its range calculations based on the vehicle’s driver. The goal is to better predict remaining range and therefore reduce range anxiety.

“Electric vehicle customers need to be able to trust their range estimates,” said Darren Palmer, Ford global director, battery electric vehicles. “People want to be confident they’re going to make it where they need to go, whether they’re on a road trip or coming home from work. Our new Intelligent Range feature helps ensure Mustang Mach-E owners around the globe know where they stand ahead of time, freeing them up to enjoy the ride.”

Ford Mustang Mach-E owners will be able to choose if they want to share data on how conditions, terrain, and elevation have impacted range. Other Mach-Es will be able to use this data to improve range accuracy even more.

The instrument cluster will show the updated range as it is calculated as well as the reasons why the range has been impacted.

Last but not least, Ford Roadside Assistance will tow customers free of charge within 25 kilometres (16 miles) should they run out of range. That’s not a huge distance, but still. The idea here is that is you run out of power, roadside assistance will be available.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E will be offered in either RWD or AWD configurations with range estimates from 355 kilometres to 475 kilometres. The flagship Mustang Mach-E will be the GT Performance Edition which can reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in under 3.0 seconds.
