As a result, it failed to pass the moose test conducted by Km77. The Spanish YouTube channel found it tricky to keep the Mustang Mach-E in between the cones during the evasive maneuver. For one, the back end has the tendency to skid when pushed to the limits, and understeer then kicks in, making it very challenging to return to the initial lane after avoiding the imaginary obstacle in the middle of the road.
The best entry speed achieved by Km77 in the American zero-emission crossover was 71 kph (44 mph), or 6 kph (4 mph) below the minimum. The tires, a set of 225/55R19 Continental PremiumContact 6, didn’t help it at all, according to the team behind the test, who reckons that it would have been “very hard to do better”. The ESC does kick in, but when it does, it is barely noticeable, they added.
The result is comparable to the 2022 Hyundai Tucson and new-gen Suzuki Jimny, both of which managed to stay away from the cones at a maximum entry speed of 71 kph (44 mph).
Its tail-happy nature is also visible in the slalom test. However, it can be kept in check by simply lowering the speed, so it shouldn't worry drivers. Keep pushing it, though, and it will eventually understeer, as demonstrated on film down below.
