Ford Mustang Mach-E embarks on 1,000-kilometer journey in UK

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a Guiness World Record holder after demonstrating its ultra-efficiency between John O’Groats and Land’s End. Those places are located on either end of the United Kingdom

Awarded for the lowest energy consumption in an electric car, independently verified data showed that the Mustang Mach-E traveled over 6.5 miles (10 kilometers) per kilowatt hour (kWh) of electrical energy.

With 88kWh of available battery capacity, the efficiency achieved reflects well over 800km of range, adding more than 193km to the Mustang Mach-E’s official 600km range.

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 1,351km to Land’s End required only two main charging stops at Wigan, in North West England, and Cullompton, Devon.

The  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.

With the Highway Code recommending a break from driving of at least 15 minutes every two hours, the record feat shows that safety-conscious drivers pause journeys longer to refresh than charge their vehicles.

World record team members Paul Clifton, BBC transport correspondent, and co-drivers Fergal McGrath and Kevin Booker, who already hold petrol and diesel economy records between them, said: “This record is about demonstrating that electric cars are now viable for everyone — not just for short urban trips to work or the shops, or as a second car, but for real-world use on long cross-country journeys.

We’ve proved that, with this car, the tipping point has been reached.

“The Mustang Mach-E’s range and efficiency make it an everyday car for tackling unpredictable journey patterns. We did a full day’s testing totalling 402km, and the car still had 45 percent battery charge on our return,” they added.
