Since the EPA range numbers for the Ford Mustang Mach-E are in (besides the GT version), we can take a look at how it stands against BEVs currently available on the market.
First of all, the Ford Mustang Mach-E range ratings are pretty solid - from 211 miles (339 km) to 300 miles (483 km). The top two 270- and 300-mile results are actually the best for non-Tesla EVs. It's the first 300-mile result (on the market) from a manufacturer other than Tesla.
The only downfall is that Ford uses bigger battery packs, but let's give them time to improve the efficiency over time, and by the way, we don't know whether it's an efficiency problem or just a big battery buffer to start conservatively.
Here is how it looks on the chart. Additionally, we included also the Volkswagen ID.4 RWD (expected 250 miles/402 km EPA), although it's delayed to Q1 2021. . . .
Even more interesting is the comparison of prices, as the Ford Mustang Mach-E (SR AWD) turns out to be the most affordable all-wheel-drive all-electric car (MSRP + DST, deducting federal tax credit).
Moreover, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is the most affordable model with a range of 300 miles: effectively from $45,600. . . .

It is not even 50 mph average. Per https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/fe_test_schedules.shtml under Test Details, the highest average speed of any of the test cycles is 48.4 mph. However, the high speed test does reach 80 mph. You can look more at https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/how_tested.shtml and https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/pdfs/EP ... 4-2017.pdf.danrjones wrote: ↑Tue Nov 10, 2020 9:57 amTo me this just underscores how wonky the whole range testing thing is.
We all have different needs, but even the "highway" range the EPA test cycle runs is BS.
I saw it on a YouTube video the other day - can't remember which one, might have been Out of Spec?
But they went over the EPA test and even the highway test only has an AVG speed of around 50 mph plus stops.
A real highway test would be 70 mph, no stops, continuously until the EV gives up going forward.
This is why I take the EPA range and multiply it by 66% to find a "real world" range.
I think that the 220/150 mile range options will suffice to keep the car viable, especially in conjunction with the above minor improvements. It just isn't going to attract many younger people and/or those who drive a lot of miles.I think for Leaf to stay in the realm of consideration, they are going to need to raise range to 250 miles and make a few cosmetic changes (center console, rear hump height, rear vents, memory on drivers seat).

I am unclear on whether or not this slow charging was due to limits in the Mach-E or something to do with all the EA chargers at that location being slow for some reason. If the former, the car apparently needs some work. If the latter, the EA network needs work.
