The Ford Mustang Mach-E, The Best-Selling New Car In Norway

Author: |

In May 2021, the Ford Mustang Mach-E was the best-selling new car in Norway. The Ford Mustang Mach-E, the company's first significant, contemporary electric vehicle, accounted for over 10% of all new registrations last month, totaling 1,384.

Many consider the Norwegian market as a testbed for EVs. For the first time, EVs outsold internal combustion cars last year. According to the Norwegian Road Federation, battery-electric cars accounted for 60.4 percent of all sales in the country in May. The Toyota Rav4 hybrid was the second-best-selling car in May 2021, with 853 registrations, followed closely by the Skoda Enyaq (795) and the Volkswagen ID.4 (774).

Surprisingly, in May, the Tesla Model 3 (504) was just the sixth best-selling vehicle in Norway.

The base-model standard range rear-drive Mach-E goes from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds and is rated for 230 miles on a single charge by the EPA.

When all-wheel drive is selected, 0-60 acceleration is reduced to the mid-fives, but range is reduced to 211 miles. The battery packs in these variants are 75.7 kWh and can take up to 115 kW on a DC fast charger. Power output should be in the neighborhood of 255 horsepower and 306 lb-ft of torque.

The extended range Mach-Es have a 98.8 kWh battery that can be charged at up to 150 kW using a DC fast charger. We tested a dual-motor AWD Mach-E 4x with 346 horses and 428 lb-ft of torque, and it hit 60 mph in 4.8 seconds.
