Posted on 06/16/2020 12:12:45 PM PDT by Red Badger
The amount is 250.0 kWh, or roughly three to five fill-ups of free power, and it's supplied by partner Electrify America.
Ford and partner Electrify America have announced they'll provide 250.0 kilowatt-hours of free power for Mustang Mach-E drivers.
The offer is equivalent to three to five fill-ups, depending on the battery pack of the Ford EV.
Ford also announced that its $799 Ford Connected Charge Station wall box is now available from dealers.
Ford continues to ramp up excitement about the upcoming battery-electric Mustang Mach-E, which is set to go on sale later this year. Now it's offering new owners of the EV 250.0 kWh of free charging via Electrify Americas DC fast-charging stations using the FordPass charging network. Not a huge amount of energy when compared to Audis 1000.0 kWh of free charging for the e-tron, but its a nice bonus for those already planning to buy Ford's upcoming halo electric vehicle.
Depending on the version of the Mach-E purchased, the 250.0 kWh can fill the battery from 10 percent to 80 percent five times for the standard-range variant (75.7 kWh) and three times for the version with extended-range battery (98.9 kWh). The free power is only available at Electrify America stations; the VW initiative is one of the partners of the FordPass Charging network. The network consolidates all these charging partners into a single-payment system so Mach-E drivers dont have to subscribe to a plethora of networks. New Mach-E owners also get a free two-year subscription to FordPass's charging feature.
For at-home charging, Ford announced that its Ford Connected Charge Station wall box is now available at dealerships for $799. The automaker said that it should be able to charge a Mach-E overnight. Ford also announced that later this year, Amazon Home Services will install Ford's home charging station or 240-volt outlets in owners' homes.
One of the main opportunities we have is educating our potential customers about road-trip readiness, said Matt Stover, Ford director of charging. "The 250 kilowatt-hours of complimentary charging we're offering . . . will give our Mustang Mach-E customers confidence in their ability to plan trips."
What a drab and ugly looking car!
That’s an old man’s car.
It may go zoom zoom, but without the vroom vroom, it ain’t a Mustang!
A real Mustang is as much Otto cycle horsepower as can be crammed under the hood in as light a vehicle as possible. It’s not some sissified electric Soy Boy Toy to creep around town virtue signaling to fellow Leftist a-hole knotheads.
Gonna need a bigger nuclear power plant.
The word should introduces a gamble that no one going cross country is comfortable with. Count me out again.
Ugh, it looks like an KIA economy model. Fire the entire design team and whomever said this would be a good idea.
Ping for later; reserving optimism.
I will say that the trend in E power is performance vs faux-green BS. See Zero motorcycles and Formula E for fast electric vehicles.
Some also say the Teslas can move along.
A Tesla roadsters 0-60 is 1.9 seconds. Electric vehicles designed for performance are incredibly efficient, and Im not talking about economy saving efficiencies. Im talking about reducing mechanical power losses and the simplicity if the system. No transmission, no engine, no fuel system, no exhaust system. Just power, motors and wheels.
Will not buy an electric car.
Very cool, they are also selling the new Ford Mach One. For those more Internally Combustion inclined.
“A Tesla roadsters 0-60 is 1.9 seconds.”
Needs recharging in 2.0 seconds.
And after one of those runs, Toyota Camrys are picking on it.
Its less than 5 charges, equivalent of about 4 gas fill-ups.
Not free for life.
