Ford Mustang Mach-E suddenly a lot more practical because of approval

August 3, 2022

Ford Mustang Mach-E

With a Mustang Mach-E, you can officially drive up to 610 kilometers on a full battery charge. Quite a distance, although of course in practice you always get a little less far. Also nice: with the right quick charger, about 119 kilometers of extra range pops into the battery pack in 10 minutes. An excellent electric car for touring to southern Europe or winter sports. So it was a bit disappointing that you couldn’t attach a roof box, mountain bikes, skis or surfboard on top of the Mach-E. Was disappointing, because from now on it is possible.


Of course, this was already possible, but officially it was not allowed. But now the model is officially approved for roof loads up to 75 kg. That’s roughly equivalent to three full airplane suitcases. So from now on you can travel to the Rhone with a Mach-E with a set of kayaks or to a winter sports destination with a roof box full of skis. Note: Do you have a Mach-E with the gigantic optional panoramic roof sitting in front of the door? Then you are only allowed to strap up to 65 kg on the roof. Then you will have to put the kayaks on the scales first so.
