The Ford Mustang Mach-E failed the elk test

The journalists of the Swedish publication Teknikens Varld conducted an "elk test" of the first electric crossover Ford - Mustang Mach-E. During this test, the driver's attempt to avoid a collision with an obstacle that suddenly appeared on the road is simulated, which could be, for example, a moose that has run out onto the road.


During the test it was defined that electrocross is not able to pass an obstacle at standard 77 km/h and even at low speed of 68 km/h the back part of the car skids and shoots down the cones. If you drive faster, you can lose control over the Mustang Mach-E completely.


The journalists of Teknikens Varld reminded that not all non-fuel "parkettes" demonstrate such behavior. Thus, electric car Tesla Model Y copes with "elk test" at 75 km/h, and Hyundai Ioniq 5 - at 72 km/h.


Recall that Ford has been producing the Mustang Mach-E since October 2020.
