Best Home Charger for Ford Mustang Mach-E

The Mustang Mach-E is a fully electric compact crossover SUV introduced by Ford in 2020 as a 2021 model. The Mach-E is an award winning EV, and has beaten many of its competitors to market. The Mach-E is the first Ford based on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform.

The car is available with two battery capacity options, and a choice of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel-drive. Entry level Mach-Es have a capacity of 68 kWh and a 198 kW (266 hp) motor. The EPA range is estimated to be 230 miles for this variant. Upgrading the RWD cars to the extended range 88 kWh battery will max out the range to 300 miles.

Higher trim Mach-Es are available with both AWD and higher capacity batteries. Having two motors has a small range penalty (270 miles). Finally, the range topping GT trim is available with many visual and performance upgrades, power output is an impressive 360 kW (480 hp!) but range is still impressive at 250 miles. 

The Mustang Mach-E uses a standard Type 2/CCS connector and charging tops out at 11 kW on AC power. Below we’ve got our top home charger recommendations for the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the Ford Mustang Mach-E

Does the Mach-E come with a charger?

Ford includes a mobile charger with every Mach-E. This mobile connector is able to charger both over 120 volt household power, as well as Level 2 240 volts from a NEMA 14-50 plug. You could get away with only using the mobile charger, but for drivers covering lots of miles we recommend leaving the mobile charger in the car for emergencies and installing dedicated home charging station.

Should I leave my Mach-E plugged in all the time?

Yes, it’s a good idea to leave the Mach-E plugged into when it is not in use. The car will maintain the high voltage battery, this is especially important when the ambient temperatures drops below freezing. But Ford strongly recommends setting a charge limit to 80 or 90% for daily use, so the battery is not sitting at 100% charge for too long.

Which wheels and tires are the most efficient on the Mach-E?

Mach-E comes on either 18-inch wheels and 225/60R18 tires, or 19-inch wheels with 225/55R19 tires. Section 225 tires are unusually skinny for a vehicle of this size, bit narrower tires help with aerodynamics efficiency and lower rolling resistance. The Mustang Mach-E GT comes with 20-inch wheels and wider 245/45R20 tires for higher performance. If you want maximum range, stick with the smallest diameter wheels that are offered.

Can I use a Tesla charger on Mach-E?

The Tesla Supercharger network is exclusive to Tesla cars in North America right now, so you cannot charge the Mach-E on a Supercharger. However, Level 2 home chargers (and destination) chargers can be used to charge a Ford Mach-E with a Tesla to J1772 adapter, which is commonly sold online.

How much does it cost to charge Mach-E?

Assuming a fairly average cost of 13 cents per kiloWatt hour of energy, and 95% charging efficiency, it would cost around $12 to fully charge the Ford Mach-E with the larger 88 kWh battery.
