Ford Mustang Mach-E: Guinness record for economy-economy

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has a new Guinness record in terms of economy as reported by the British website Autocar. On the 1,352 kilometer route from John o 'Groats in the far north of Great Britain to Land's End in the far south west, the electric SUV managed 6.54 miles per kWh.

Converted to 9.5 kWh / 100 km. For comparison: The official WLTP power consumption is 16.5 kWh / 100 km.

The car was driven alternately by BBC reporter Paul Clifton and economy drive experts Fergal McGrath and Kevin Brooker. The journey began on July 3rd and lasted 27 hours. The average speed was almost exactly 50 km / h. The drivers only had to stop twice to recharge; however, the two stops together only lasted 45 minutes.

The Mustang Mach-E used was of course the version with the greatest range: the rear-wheel drive version with extended-range battery. The battery has a gross capacity of 99 kWh, of which 88 kWh can be used. The official WLTP range is 610 kilometers. In the record run, one load covered more than 800 kilometers, almost a third more.

During the record run, the driver team wanted to prove that electric cars are now also practicable over long distances. Most consumers believe that an electric car can travel less than 250 kilometers on average on one charge. That was the result of surveys by Ford. In the economy trip, more than three times this distance was achieved.
