Ford Mustang Mach-E travels 301 mi non-stop in Norway, 14% remaining

Are Ford's EPA estimates overly conservative?

From Norway’s capital city of Oslo, Per Gunnar Berg, Ford Norway’s CEO, drove the Mustang Mach-E non-stop to Trondheim, 301 mi (484 km) away, and the electric pony had 14 percent of charge left when he reached his destination. This drive gives us some clues about how Mustang Mach-E will perform in real world conditions.

From the contrasting stitching inside Berg’s Mustang Mach-E and the badge on the driver’s door, we assume he was driving an all-wheel-drive, extended-range First Edition model, which Ford claims only has an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles. Doing some quick and dirty math gives an estimated total range of nearly 350 miles to Berg’s Mustang Mach-E in the conditions he experienced on the road.

While Ford may bump it’s EPA-estimated range as we get closer to production (like it did with power figures), it’s likely they will not go as high as 350 miles for all-wheel-drive, extended-range models. But this does give a glimpse of Mustang Mach-E’s efficiency on the road, in real life. Ford estimates rear-wheel-drive, extended range models will get even better range.
