The fastest way to charge your 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E battery is with a public 150 kW FordPass™ charging station, which can charge at a rate of 61 miles of range per 10 minutes. By contrast, the slowest way to charge your Mach-E is with a 120-volt outlet, which could take as long as four days to fully charge your EV. 
The award-winning 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is a triumph of Ford technology—and given the brand’s ever-expanding network of public EV charging stations, more drivers than ever before now have the opportunity to consider an electric vehicle as a real possibility for their next car. 
But part of making that call is understanding your charging options, and how those options influence charge rates in the all-electric Mustang Mach-E. If you’re considering EV ownership, then car insurance super app
Jerry
is here to help you weigh those options and break down the charge times for Ford’s favorite electric vehicle. 
In this article, we’ll go over the charging methods at your disposal (including the fastest and slowest), and help you save on

How long does a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E take to charge?

The short answer is: between 38 minutes and four days.
The long answer: depending on your Mach-E’s battery size, drivetrain, and the type of charger you use, you may experience variation in exactly how long it takes to charge your vehicle. 
When it comes to the battery size and powertrain, the Mach-E is offered in four separate pack-and-powertrain combinations: 
  • Standard range with RWD (230-mile range): 38 minutes to 3.9 days
  • Standard range with eAWD (211-mile range): 38 minutes to 3.9 days
  • Extended range with RWD (300-mile range): 45 minutes to 3.9 days
  • Extended range with eAWD (260-mile range): 45 minutes to 3.9 days
The smaller, standard-range pack has a slightly faster charge time than the larger extended-range one—but the type of charger you use also makes a difference. If you paid the extra $800 for an at-home Ford Connected Charge Station, you’ll likely see faster charging times—whereas a mobile charger plugged into a 120V outlet will be the slowest, requiring up to 95 hours to reach full capacity. 

At-home charging speeds for a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

If you can afford it, the Ford Connected Charge Station is by far the fastest and easiest way to accomplish at-home charging. With it, you’ll see a capacity charge from 0% to 100% in just 10.9 hours, making it ideal for overnight charging. 
If, however, the high-price Ford Connected Charge Station was beyond your budget, you’ve still got at-home options. Every Mustang Mach-E comes standard with mobile charging equipment that allows you to plug your vehicle right into a three-prong outlet—but the outlet voltage will impact your EV’s charging speed. 
Using a standard 120-volt outlet (known in EV charging terms as a Level 1 charger) will take as long as 95 hours (about four days) to reach full capacity—in other words, you’ll see a charge time of 20 miles of range per hour of charging time
In a 240-volt outlet (or Level 2 charger) that time is significantly improved—it will take just 15 hours of charge time to reach full battery capacity, making overnight charging a possibility. The table below summarizes average at-home charging times based on the type of charger used: 
Home charging method
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Standard Range Pack charge time
2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Extended Range Pack charge time
Ford Connected Charge Station
10.1 hours
10.9 hours
120-volt outlet (Level 1)
95 hours
100 hours
240-volt outlet (Level 2)
14 hours
15 hours
Keep in mind that once your battery has reached an 80% capacity charge, the charger will automatically limit power—which may mean it takes additional time to go from 80% to a full 100% charge. Luckily, 80% is typically all the charge you need, and Ford even recommends unplugging your vehicle after reaching an eighty-percent battery charge. 
Key Takeaway In a 240V outlet, your Mach-E will reach full battery capacity in just 15 hours—but for a 120V outlet, it could take as long as four days.

Public charging speeds for a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

Public charging is generally faster than at-home charging, although you’ll still face variations in charge time depending on the type of public charger you’re using. 
Public Level 2 chargers, for example, will require the same amount of time as at-home charging in a 240-volt outlet,  adding an average of 20 miles of range per hour of charge time. But Ford-specific and DC Fast Charging stations can yield even faster results. 
Ford’s brand-name charging network—known as the
FordPass™ Charging Network
—includes over 13,500 public fast charging stations across the country that are capable of adding up to 61 miles of range to your Mach-E’s battery in just 10 minutes. This means you could reach an 80% battery charge in as little as 30 to 45 minutes depending on your battery pack! 
While FordPass™ offers Mach-E drivers access to Level 3 charging, you’re not limited to brand-only public chargers. A regular DC Fast Charging station will yield about the same amount of battery charge in the same amount of time. The table below takes a closer look at public charging speeds for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E:
