Efficiency

After considering the crucial aspect of range in electric SUVs, let’s pivot to efficiency – a key factor for many vehicle shoppers.

Imagine you’re running low on power; with the Mach-E, a brief 15-minute break at a charging station adds up to 60 miles of range. It’s the perfect opportunity to grab a coffee or reply to emails while your Mustang breathes in new life.


Tesla Model Y also impresses with its rapid charging ability, gaining up to 162 miles in just as little time at one of its Superchargers. But it’s about more than just mileage; it’s about convenience and accessibility. The widespread availability of fast chargers that support the Ford Mustang Mach-E means you can confidently venture far from Toms River, knowing that recharging won’t slow you down. Quick accelerations back onto New Jersey roads are guaranteed after these short pit stops, ensuring your travels are efficient and uninterrupted.
