Ford Mustang Mach-E Home Charging Guide

The Mustang Mach-E is a fully electric compact crossover SUV introduced by Ford in 2020 as a 2021 model. The Mach-E is the first Ford based on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform.

The car is available in 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. 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. The GT trim is available with many visual and performance upgrades, the power output is an impressive 480 hp and the range is still competitive, at 250 miles. 

The Mustang Mach-E uses a standard J1772 / CCS connector and charging tops out at 11 kW on AC power. Below are our top home charging station recommendations for the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

It is a simple utilitarian design metal box with an LED indicator light and heavy-duty construction. There are no screens or wifi connectivity options, just an industrial box with 40 amps of power, which should translate to about 9.6 kW usable charging speed.

An excellent choice for Mach-E drivers from colder climates. This charger is available with either NEMA 14-50 or NEMA 06-50 wall connectors (check the SKU when ordering), and all variants can be hardwired by a licensed electrician.

Tesla Universal Wall Connector (48 Amp)

Tesla Universal Wall Connector for Ford Mustang Mach-E

Mach-E drivers looking for a premium option should consider the Universal version of the Tesla Wall Connector. This charging station is compatible with the widely used J1772 connector of the 2024 Mustang Mach-E as well the Tesla’s NACS connector that is going to be built into future Ford EVs after 2025. This way, you get one home charging station that is capable of charging all modern EVs.

Tesla brings a lot of EV charging expertise to their Wall Connector products by using quality materials where it matters. The cord is on the thinner side, which makes it easy to manage, but it is still rated to operate at the full 48 amps.

Specs

  • Amperage: Up to 48 amps
  • EV Connector: NACS + J1772
  • Home Connection: Hardwire
  • Cord Length: 24 feet
  • Cord Thickness: 15 mm
  • Weatherproofing:
    NEMA 3R
  • Networking: Wi-Fi
  • App Control: Yes
  • Warranty: 4 years

Pros

  • Quality cord, easy to manage
  • J1772 and NACS in connectors in one product
  • Smart cord management

Cons

  • Hardwire install only
  • Plastic enclosure means only a NEMA 3R rating

Shell Recharge Portable EV Charger (40 Amp)

Shell Recharge Portable EV charger and the Mach-E

The Shell Recharge EV charger is a good option for Mach-E owners who need a charger that can go on the road. This is a fully-featured 40-amp Level 2 charger with a 25-foot-long cord and IP66 weatherproofing. We were impressed with the 8-gauge wiring and thermal performance of this relatively inexpensive product. It also sports Shell’s EV brand colors with bright teal and yellow materials, making it stand out from most of the other products we looked at.

Our only complaints about the Shell Recharge product is the lack of cable management for usage at home, and the thicker cable makes it a bit heavier than most other portable EV chargers.

Specs

  • Amperage: Up to 40 amps
  • EV Connector: J1772
  • Home Connection: NEMA 14-50
  • Cord Length: 25 feet
  • Cord Thickness: 21 mm
  • Cord Gauge: AWG 8
  • Weatherproofing:
    IP66
  • Networking: No
  • App Control: No
  • Warranty: 1 year

Pros

  • Good 40-amp charger for the price
  • Comes with a carrying case
  • LCD Display with stats

Cons

  • Lack of cable management
  • A bit heavy for a portable unit

Like other premium chargers, it features a 25-foot-long cable. The 48 amp version is able to deliver up to 11.5 kW of power, cutting down charge times for Mach-E owners to just a few hours rather than overnight.

  • EV Connector: J1772
  • Home Connection: NEMA 14-50 or hardwire
  • Cord Length: 25 feet

Frequently Asked Questions about charging the Ford Mustang Mach-E

Can I use a Tesla charger with the Mach-E?

As of February 29, 2024, Ford vehicles are now able to charge at thousands of V2 and V3 Tesla Superchargers. The Mach-E must be on the latest software to use Superchargers, and you can request a Tesla-to-CCS adapter from Ford on this page.

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 many miles, we recommend leaving the mobile charger in the car for emergencies and installing a dedicated home charging station.

Where is the charging port location on the Mustang Mach-E?

The charging port is located on the front driver-side (left) fender of the Mach-E, just in front of the driver’s door. This is kind of an unusual location for a charging port, keep this in mind when installing an EV charging station. Mach-E charging port location on the front fender

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

Yes, it’s a good idea to leave the Mach-E plugged in when it is not in use. The car will maintain the high voltage battery, this is especially important when the ambient temperatures drop 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 wheel and tire combination is 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, but these narrower tires help with aerodynamic 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.

Does Ford plan to support the NACS (Tesla) connector?

Yes, Ford announced that their new EVs built in 2025 and after will feature the NACS/Tesla connector in North America. Allowing their vehicles to use Tesla Supercharger locations without an adapter.

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.
