Ford Mustang Mach E scores 5-stars for safety and environment

The fully electric Ford Mustang Mach E has achieved a 5-star double Euro NCAP and Green NCAP score for safety and the environment.

Ford’s all-electric SUV received the maximum 5-star ratings in assessments by both the independent vehicle safety authority and the independent initiative that promotes the development of cars which are clean, energy efficient and not harmful to the environment.

Mustang Mach-E’s performance in stringent crash testing produced scores of 92% for adult and 86% for child occupant protection.

Standard advanced driver assistance technologies including Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and Lane Centring, Pre-Collision Assist with Auto Emergency Braking, and Lane-Keeping System with Blind Spot Assist also contributed to the maximum safety rating. The SUV scored full marks for its lane support technologies.

Powered by a zero-tailpipe-emission, battery-electric powertrain offering up to 379 miles WLTP pure-electric driving range, Mustang Mach-E also recorded full marks in clean air and greenhouse gas tests during assessments by Green NCAP.

A 94% score for energy efficiency included full marks for operation in cold and warm condition laboratory tests.

Stuart Southgate, director of safety engineering at Ford of Europe, said: “Mustang Mach-E was developed from the ground up as an all-electric vehicle, so we could develop safety and environmental performance into every corner of the all-new design.

“The result is that customers can be confident they’re driving a vehicle that can look after them just as much as it looks after the environment.”
