Ford is happy that the new Mustang finally made it to the showrooms. And with a new record onto its name.
the Mustang Mach-E, is a GUINNESS WORLD RECORD holder after demonstrating its efficiency between John O’Groats and Land’s End.
Awarded for the lowest energy consumption in an electric car, independently verified data showed that the Ford Mustang Mach-E travelled over 6.5 miles per kilowatt hour (kWh) of electrical energy.
With 88kWh of available battery capacity, the efficiency achieved reflects well over 500 miles of range, adding more than 120 miles to Mustang Mach-E’s official 379-mile range – and trebling the miles per kWh target set by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for this new electric vehicle record.
The record-breaking performance on Britain’s most lengthy journey necessitated stopping for under 45 minutes of charging.
Leaving John O’Groats on full charge, the 840 miles to Land’s End required only two main charging stops at Wigan, in North West England, and Cullompton, Devon.
Ford’s Mustang Mach-E team took on setting a new benchmark “miles per gallon” for electric vehicles to help banish range anxiety fears. Easily tackling the UK’s most extreme direct distance with short charge stops proves the Mustang Mach-E’s viability for all everyday journeys.
Fast charging the rear-wheel drive extended range Mustang Mach-E, which set the record, at 150kW adds around 73 miles of driving range within 10 minutes of charging.
Lowest energy consumption driving from John O’Groats to Land’s End in an electric car is 6.54 miles per kWh, achieved by Kevin Booker, Paul Clifton (both UK) and Fergal McGrath (Ireland) from 3-4 July 2021.
