Ford scales up charge network for arrival of all-electric Mustang Mach-E

The size of the charging network available to Ford electric vehicle drivers has boosted over three times in readiness for the first deliveries of the Mustang Mach-E performance SUV.

Ford is broadening its long-standing business partnership with bp by adding pulse – the biggest public charging network in the UK – to the Ford Pass charging network.

The move ahead of the introduction of the all-electric Mustang Mach-E boosts Ford’s UK network from almost 3,000 charge points to around 9,500.

Ford Mustang Mach-E drivers can make use of FordPass for locating, navigate to, monitor, and pay for charging at more than 6,600 charge points in the UK belonging to the new bp pulse network.

Mustang Mach-E owners will enjoy one year’s free bp pulse access, including an increasingly rising number of high-power 150kW DC chargers, 50kW DC chargers, and almost 6,000 7kW AC points.

The trebling of Ford’s network size provides reassurance to offset one of the main issues over switching to electric – range anxiety.

Ford’s Mustang Mach-E performance Battery Electric Vehicle also reassures, much because of its intelligent range calculations drawing on live data to produce as accurate an available range display as possible, taking into account weather conditions on route impacting capability and data from other Mustang Mach-Es.

The inclusion of bp’s pulse network into the FordPass network is in addition to 3,000 existing chargers. Also available to Mach-E drivers is one year’s free subscription to Ionity’s ultra-fast chargers at 15 sites in the UK and five in Ireland.

Ford provides its Ford Connected Wallbox for all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicle consumers at home – providing up to five times the charging power of a typical domestic socket.

Mark Harvey, Ford’s European enterprise connectivity director, said: “Starting 2021 with the exciting Mustang Mach-E will speed up Ford’s progress towards electrified engines accounting for more than half of our car sales by the end of 2022.

“Key to this roll-out is the supporting infrastructure available to Ford customers, and today’s announcement demonstrates our dedication to matching more electrified vehicles with enough locations to charge them.”

The high-performance Mustang Mach-E, arriving this spring, geared up with extended-range battery and all-wheel drive will deliver 0-62mph acceleration in 5.1 seconds and a targeted WLTP pure electric driving range of up to 335 miles. The rear-wheel drive Mustang Mach-E has a 379-mile WLTP range.
