The Ford Mustang Mach-E Extended AWD Premium, which costs 77,200 euros, comes to the consumption check. We determined an average consumption of 27.3 kWh.
The Mach-E doesn't take it that seriously when it comes to springs, but at least an update to the springs and dampers has given it more sensitivity. However, he does not succeed in the matter with the price advantage of the combustion Mustang: The Mach-E Extended AWD has become more expensive by 7,500 euros due to the most recent price increase, which burst in the middle of the production of this comparison test. With a little more equipment (but still without a head-up display), the basic price is now 77,200 euros. ,
Even with less power (269 hp) and a smaller battery, the Ford costs 69,200 euros. And what about the fuel and maintenance costs?
Our test consumption
Ford specifies a WLTP consumption of 18.8 kWh per 100 kilometers for the Mustang Mach-E Extended AWD Premium. He moves away from this value in everyday life. We have determined an average consumption of 27.3 kWh, which causes electricity costs of 14.47 euros per 100 kilometers. On the Eco lap, the Ford used 20.9 kWh, while on the Commuter route it consumed 26.5 kWh. If the Ford was moved in a sporty manner, consumption rose to 37.5 kWh. In November 2022, auto motor und sport calculated a total average price per kWh of charging current for using an electric car in Germany: 52.96 (rounded 53) cents.
Monthly maintenance costs
If you drive as resource-efficiently as we do on our eco tour, you reduce the electricity costs for 100 kilometers to 11.08 euros. The rather violent gait results in a sum of 19.88 euros. The vehicle tax costs 0 euros per year for the Ford, the liability insurance is 416 euros. Partial and fully comprehensive insurance cost an additional 182 and 799 euros respectively. Monthly maintenance costs of 286 euros are paid by those who drive the Ford 15,000 kilometers a year. If the mileage is doubled, the sum increases to 524 euros. We leave out the loss in value in this calculation.
This is how it is tested
This is how auto motor und sport measures the power consumption: 70% commuter consumption: short distances of 21 km driven several times with 70% city, 30% overland share. 15% eco-consumption: economically driven driving profile using the maximum range with urban, rural and motorway sections. Motorway speed 130 km/h. 15% sports driver consumption: Constant driving with 80% Vmax (maximum 160 km/h) plus consumption information from a comparison drive, country road and motorway.
The monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear part costs and vehicle taxes assuming an annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without loss of value. The basis for the calculation is the test consumption, a three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and fully comprehensive insurance with Allianz including discounts for garage parkers and the restriction to certain drivers (not under 21). At Allianz, SF12 offers a discount rate of 34 percent for liability and 28 percent for comprehensive insurance. ,
In the auto motor und sport test consumption, the 77,200 euro Ford Mustang Mach-E Extended AWD Premium ended up with an average value of 27.3 kWh per 100 kilometers. This means that the electricity costs over this distance are 14.47 euros. The monthly maintenance costs are 286 euros (15,000 km annual mileage) or 524 euros (30,000 km annual mileage).
