European Ford Mustang Mach-E Revealed With 600 Kilometers of Electric Range

Following the grand reveal in U.S. specification, the Mustang Mach-E has now shown its European counterpart. As the headline implies, the most important takeaway is the 600-kilometer electric range.

Translating to more than 370 miles, the figure applies to the 100-kWh battery and rear-wheel-drive configuration. The range is estimated in accordance with the World Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure, reflecting real-world performance much better than the New European Driving Cycle.

“85 percent of Mustang Mach-E customers” have pre-ordered this specification, which goes to show that range anxiety shouldn’t be taken lightly. When it comes to the Tesla Model Y, the most you can expect from the mid-sized electric crossover is 505 kilometers (WLTP) or 315 miles (EPA).

“Infrastructure is critical to helping consumers have the confidence to go electric, but we can’t do it on our own,” said Stuart Rowley, president of Ford ‘s European division. On the upside, charging for 10 minutes at 150 kW gives the Mustang Mach-E a range of 93 kilometers (57 miles).

Ford has invested in the IONITY consortium with the target to build 400 fast-charging stations in Europe by the end of 2020. IONITY will also offer preferential rates for Ford owners, but pricing has yet to be revealed. Customers who prefer charging at home can purchase the Ford Connected Wallbox, promising five times the charging power of a domestic socket.

European models benefit from specific tuning for the suspension, steering, electronic stability control, and all-wheel-drive system of the Mustang Mach-E 4 with two electric motors. Taking a look at the German-plated demo vehicle in the photo gallery further reveals gloss-black plastic on the wheel arches and side sills. So to speak, scratch marks will be inevitable.

When will the Mustang Mach-E arrive in Europe? Ford is skipping the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, so don’t expect to admire the e-crossover in the flesh next month. According to the Dearborn-based automaker, first deliveries in the Old Continent are scheduled for the end of 2020.
