Mustang Mach-E Charging Time is Impressive

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E in Phoenix, AZ at Sanderson Ford

When electric cars first started entering the automotive market, some of their biggest downfalls were short ranges, long charging times, and a lack of charging locations. Now, the all-new Mustang Mach-E can conquer all those problems with a long range, quick charging times, and access to the largest electric vehicle charging network.

The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is available with both standard and extended range battery options. When equipped with rear-wheel drive and the extended range battery, the Mustang Mach-E offers an EPA-estimated driving range of 300 miles*, which is more than enough for a week’s worth of driving for many families.

When you do need to charge up, you can use a DC fast charging station to get an estimated 61 miles of range in 10 minutes, on the extended range models. The standard-range battery adds about 46 miles of range with 10 minutes of charging.

When you drive the Mustang Mach-E, you have access to the FordPass™ Charging Network. This includes 13,500 charging stations and nearly 40,000 plugs across North America. With such a wide charging infrastructure and quick charging times, the Mach-E is the ideal choice for travelling cross country in an electric vehicle.

Mark Kaufman, Ford global director, electrification, said, “We’ve made it a priority to make it faster to recharge their Mustang Mach-E, and we’re continuing to work with providers to ensure even more charge points are available through FordPass to make it easier to recharge.”

Ford Mustang Mach-E Technicians Get Virtual Reality Maintenance Training

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

The upcoming all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E is not only set to revolutionize the road, but will also dramatically alter the way automotive technicians learn to service the state-of-the-art crossover. An all-new virtual reality maintenance training system, developed through a partnership between Ford and technology firm Bosch, will allow technicians to learn to repair and service the upcoming electric vehicle without the need for hands-on exposure.

The new maintenance training system is accessed using an Oculus Quest VR headset that simulates the Mustang Mach-E and guides technicians through maintenance and repair using instructional, gamified modules. According to Ford’s Director of Service Engineering Operations, Dave Johnson, “This new virtual reality training tool allows technicians to understand the components and steps required to service these high-voltage systems, then confidently perform diagnostics and maintenance.”

The VR maintenance training system was initially developed by Bosch as a prototype that was tested by automotive students and their teachers as well as seasoned technicians. Ford, the first automotive manufacturer to pioneer Bosch’s technology, aptly chose the innovative Mustang Mach-E as its pilot vehicle to foray into the world of VR training.

In the coming years, Ford and Bosch expect to expand the virtual reality training program to include additional Ford vehicles and new capabilities to attract fresh talent to the industry.
