With EVs on the rise, it’s only a matter of time before the police patrol the streets of Westland, Michigan, in zero-emissions vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E. The Michigan State Police recently put a Ford Mustang Mach-E prototype to work as part of its annual vehicle test and found that it’s more than up for the job.
According to MSP’s preliminary testing figures, the Ford Mustang Mach-E with all-wheel-drive sprinted from 0-60 mpg in just 4.03 seconds — about on par with the Mustang Mach-E GT available through North Brothers Ford.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E prototype also went from 0-100 mph in just 11.94 seconds. That makes it nearly 2.5 seconds faster than the Ford Police Interceptor Utility, which won MSP testing for all vehicles currently available to law enforcement officers.
Another key part of the Michigan State Police test was to see how well the Ford Mustang Mach-E retained battery power. In pursuit conditions, the EV did quite well, using less than 30 percent battery capacity in a five-lap, 13.38-minute run.
The future is electric, and Ford is right where it always is: on the forefront. Contact North Brothers Ford in Westland, Michigan, to learn more about the new Mustang Mach-E as well as the upcoming F-150 Lightning.
