Ford electric SUV sets energy consumption record


Ford’s new electric SUV Mustang Mach-E There will be a holder of one in the future with two available battery packs and a larger version of rear-wheel drive Guinness world record. The electric car was recognized for its high efficiency, which it demonstrated over long distance drives. It originated in John O’Groats, a place on the north-eastern tip of Scotland. The destination was Lands End in the far west of Cornwall.

According to Ford, an independent analysis of the data showed that the Mustang Mach-E traveled with electric power of about 6.5 miles per kilowatt hour. Based on a truly usable battery capacity of 88 kilowatt hours (kWh), the efficiency achieved shows a range of over 500 miles. This corresponds to a little over 800 kms on a single battery charge and thus exceeds the factory specification of 200 kms as per the WLTP standard for this variant of the Mustang Mach-E.

A total of 840 miles (1,351 km) from the north-east to the south-west of the island – the largest distance that can be covered by road in Great Britain – required only two small charging stops with a total duration of less than 45 minutes. , Ford reports the record drive was all about allaying potential border fears and doubts about the everyday suitability of electric vehicles. The 840 miles covered with two short charging stops proves that the Mustang Mach-E is suitable for all distances.

Conclusion of world record team member Paul Clifton, transportation correspondent BBC, as well as Fergal McGrath and Kevin Booker, who have already set savings records with gasoline and diesel engines: “This record is about the fact that electric cars are ready for mass use in everyday traffic. Not only for short city trips to work or as a second car, but also for longer cross-country trips. We’ve proven that a maneuverability has reached a turning point with this vehicle. Because the Ford Mustang Mach- The E’s efficiency and range are perfectly suited for everyday use. We covered about 400 kilometers per test day and charged the battery to 45 percent in the evening.
