Ford Mach E will deliver 370km range
Ford Motor Company has just announced thatit is considering launching a 100% electric vehicle (EV). The brand has disclosedthat the future Ford “Mach-e” which is targeted to be presented verysoon is aimed to compete with the Tesla Model Y.
This first 100% electric Ford model will belaunched in 2020. From the limited information that we have gathered we knowthat this EV will take the form of a crossover also inspired by the Mustang.
The Mach E will have impressive drivingrange. “More than 350 miles” is the bold statement that has been shared. The teslaModel Y, for comparison, manages up to 300 miles of EPA-rated range on a fullcharge of the Panasonic lithium-ion battery.
Ford claims the Mach E is easily capable of 370 miles under the WLTP. That’s 595 kilometers in one go, and the EV industry is finding it hard to believe this claim given the size and shape of the Mach E and the limited technology know-how that the Ford Motor Company currently has in terms of EVs. The Tesla Model Y in ‘Long Range’ mode is rated at 540 kilometers (336 miles) under the WLTP.
