Ford’s latest all-electric car, the Mustang Mach-E has been awarded a Guinness World Record after demonstrating its impressive efficiency on the lengthy journey from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
The vehicle received the accolade for the lowest energy consumption in an electric car. The Ford Mustang Mach-E travelled over 6.5 miles per kilowatt (kWh) hour of electrical energy. Such efficiency is equivalent to over 500 miles of range – which adds more than 120 miles to the vehicles ‘official’ range of 379 miles.
On the 840-mile trip from John O’Groats to Lands End, the Mach-E stopped for under 45 minutes in total to boost its battery. Leaving John O’Groats on full charge, the Mach-E stopped to charge just twice; once in Wigan, North West England and again in Cullompton, Devon.
The fact the Mustang Mach-E tackled the UK’s longest direct distance with such short charge stops proves its everyday capability.
Ford conducted some research on consumer perceptions towards electric vehicles, and found the average range which the public believe a fully charged electric vehicle can travel is under 150 miles. The Mach-E achieved three times this - and Ford hope this will help to banish widespread range anxiety fears.
