Ford’s 2022 Mustang Mach-E Has a Big Battery

In an era of ford mach e battery size videos, where range has become the new horsepower, Ford is hoping that its Mustang Mach-E will stand out among 2022 electric SUVs with a big advantage: a large battery. On Wednesday, the carmaker released adjusted power and torque specs that reflect a 3% to 4% bump in rated output over earlier preliminary estimates, but it’s also started listing the usable capacity of the standard and extended range batteries on its order guides and configuration and build pages.

Ford Mach-E Battery Size: Understanding Its Capacity and Range

Those numbers are based on the car’s lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery pack, with the standard-range pack featuring 75.7 kwh of capacity and the extended-range offering up to 88 kwh. The batteries send electricity to a rear motor with the option for all-wheel drive, giving the Mustang Mach-E EPA ratings of up to 300 miles per charge.

Ford is also preparing to open its first LFP battery plant in Marshall, Michigan, this year, which will help reduce reliance on minerals like nickel and cobalt and align with the company’s commitment to sustainable production. Both the standard-range and extended-range batteries can be charged up to 80% of their capacity in less than 30 minutes at a DC fast charger.

For those who might need to replace the battery in their Mustang Mach-E, the service manual explains how to do so under “Powertrain,” which includes the battery and inverter. Before attempting a replacement, you’ll want to be sure the engine is completely off, and you may need a wrench to loosen a bolt slightly that holds the black negative battery cable.
