A Ford Mustang Mach-E without any upgrading, managed to achieve a world record at the hands of Paul Clifton, Fergal McGrath and Kevin Brooker where he managed to travel the distance between John o’ Groats and the UK’s Land’s End, a distance of more than 1,350 km and literally crosses the whole of England, stopping only twice and in total , 45 minutes to charge!
“The record is about proving that electric cars are a viable alternative for everyone. It is not only for short distances within the city or as a second car but can be used in real conditions, on long journeys. We proved it with this car. We have reached the turning point,” the group said.

Of course, as with any record regardless of the type of drive-train, there are some asterisks: The journey began on July 3rd and ended 27 hours later, with an average hourly speed of about 50 km/h. Even so, achievement doesn’t lose luster. The group of three Britons managed to far exceed the official range of 610 km according to the WLTP standard, traveling almost 10.5 km per kWh and charging for only 45 minutes.
It should be noted that the new record achieved by the Ford Mustang Mach-E comes a few days after a Renault Zoe equivalent. The French electric traveled 683.34 km on one charge but this was not done on public roads and the average hourly speed did not exceed 28 km/h.
But what made the American electric SUV is more impressive! In any case, however, “range anxiety” will be a thing of the past in a short time.
