The new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV can reach the coastline from every European capital city on a single charge.
Range anxiety won’t be a worry when it comes to beach holidays this Bank Holiday, says Ford.
Sales of its electric models, notably the Mustang Mach-E, have already surged by 50 percent so far in 2021.
Now, Ford is keen to demonstrate that its electric SUV is ready to reach the beach in the UK and beyond.
With a fully-charged battery, Ford has calculated that the Mustang Mach-E could drive to the seaside from every European capital without stopping.
A Mustang Mach-E, configured in rear-wheel drive extended-battery specification, can cover 379 miles when charged. Even the high-performance Mach-E GT is capable of 310 miles on a single charge, according to official tests.
This would even allow a Mach-E driver to navigate from Prague in the landlocked Czech Republic, all the way to the Szczecin Beach in Poland.
At 310 miles, even the Mach-E GT could, albeit only just, make the trip without recharging.
London to Cornwall, Madrid to Marbella and Budapest to Trieste are also possible without the need to charge the Mach-E.
Earlier this year, Ford set a new Guinness World Record using the new Mustang. The Mach-E covered the 840-mile trip from John O’Groats to Land’s End with just two stops to recharge.
The Mustang Mach-E went on sale in the UK and Europe in June. Following its launch, the car topped the sales chart in EV-focused Norway.
