The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E will Receive More Range

Ford increased the Mustang Mach-E's range for 2022 with more powerful batteries

  • Higher battery capacities will increase range across the board

  • Only the GT model will stay at the same range

  • EPA figures start from 360 km (224 mi) and end at 505 km (314 mi)

The Ford Mustang Mach-E gets an improved range for 2022 due to slightly more powerful batteries and increased efficiency.

Ford increased the useable battery capacity of the Mach-E from 68 kWh to 70 kWh in the standard range models and from 88 to 91 kWh in the extended range models.

Combined with less parasitic losses, this allows the range to improve by 1% to 7.4% depending on the model and with the exception of the GT which sees no changes, perhaps because this model was already equipped with the more powerful batteries.

This means the base model Select Short Range (SR) RWD now benefits from a range of 397 kilometers (247 miles), an improvement of 27 kilometers (17 miles) over last year. The same goes for the Premium SR RWD.

Adding AWD by way of a second motor to these models brings the range down to 360 kilometers (224 miles), which is an improvement of 21 kilometers (13 miles).

The Extended Range (ER) variants are equipped with the largest of the two battery packs. The Premium ER RWD offers 488 kilometers (303 miles) up by 5 kilometers (3 miles), which is to lowest range increase observed for the 2022 Mach-E. The AWD version does slightly better despite a lower range, with an increase of 11 kilometers (7 miles) to reach 446 kilometers (277 miles).

The Route 1 ER RWD model is the Mustang Mach-E with the longest range at 505 kilometers (314 miles), an increase of 14 kilometers (9 miles). An AWD variant of this model is a new addition to the lineup and its range is only slightly lower, with 502 kilometers (312 miles).

As mentioned previously, the GT model didn’t see changes to its range, so it remains available with either 434 kilometers (270 miles) or 418 kilometers (260 miles) in the GT Performance version, the quickest Mach-E available.

Ford also improved the charging curve in order to allow for shorter charge times and the automaker plans to increase production up to 200,000 units a year.
