EPA tested four versions of the car on the California Route 1 and confirmed the estimated figures previously published by Ford for the Mustang Mach-E. In the extended range and RWD configuration, the electric vehicle can cover 300 miles (482.8 km) with a fully charged battery pack.
Ford Mustang Mach-E is the first electric crossover built by Ford, and it was introduced on the market in August 2020. It is available with either rear- or all-wheel-drive systems, as well as a choice of two battery packs: 75.5 kWh for the normal version and 98.8 kWh for the extended range version. The vehicle is part of the new electric lineup of the Dearborn-based carmaker.
While it was not intended to be a sports car, such as the 2021 Mustang, Ford developed the Mach-E to meet the increased demand for electric vehicles. The 300-mile range version features a 258 hp electric motor and claims a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) time of 8 seconds, with a top speed of 112 mph (180 kph).
In the initial release, the American carmaker stated that the Mustang Mach-E could travel 230 miles (370 km) for the standard version with rear-wheel-drive only version. In comparison, the top model with all-wheel-drive and extended battery pack was able to run for 270 miles (434 km).
With the 98.8 kWh pack and RWD, the Mustang Mach-E claimed a 300 miles range. EPA confirmed all of the above and changed the rating for the version with a 75.5 kWh battery pack and all-wheel-drive. Ford claimed a 210 miles (338 km) range for that, and EPA declared 211 miles (339.5 km) on a single charge.
