Ford Mustang Mach-E Review | Driving an EV in 2022

The #Ford Mustang #Mach-E is an all-electric SUV and the first Ford to be designed specifically as an #Electric vehicle. In this video, Prohire CEO, Pat Skelly, reviews the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Hey guys and welcome back to another edition of pro bioshock tv um in this episode we’re going to look at the new ford mackie what we have mackie this is a standard range car um and there’s some really quite funky funky things on this and some of it is that’s the handle i mean who knew really really clever this has got a range of a wltp of 270 miles but

Of course as i always say and i can prove it and show it to you in under under probably five or six different models that we all operate ourselves now that wltp doesn’t mean a great deal you know i wish it did motorway mileage kills these kills electric cars around town i suppose the wltp is is manageable i’d like to say you should be getting something in the

Region of around about three and a half to four miles per kilowatt hour you know we’ve seen it less in the winter and as much as four in my own car in the summer so it’s going to be how it’s been driven and i think the better you drive this car the most sustainable you drive it the actually better you’re going to get lovely thing about this it’s got dc and ac

Charging which of course a lot of new models have it’s capable of onboarding 11 11 kilowatts thank you 11 kilowatts um ac and up to 110 kilowatts of dc charging which means you can charge this car from about 20 to 40 in about 45 minutes which actually to be fair it’s pretty decent however one of the things i’ve learned um over the last couple of years of tramping

The uk roads in electric cars is to take the power when you can so stopping at the right kind of charger doing a few emails and having a wee cup of coffee grab a sandwich and instead of having it in the car in your lap go and sit down take a break and 30 minutes of charging to this will give you a good 150 miles and that’s pretty decent you know you can carry on

And plan your journey the thing i advise for everyone really is to ensure that you plan your journey with electric i made some fatal mistakes at the beginning of course i’m a typical bloke you know push button to see what happens and hope for the best i think a little bit of planning here bringing in something like zap map so you can actually plan the charges you

Know where they are give yourself that challenge start off a little bit earlier than you would and the world will be very different and it took me some months to get used to being able to operate in that environment today um there’s nowhere in the uk today that i’m not i’m frightened of going as long as you’ve got a little bit of planning in front of it but look

At the car the car is a very very nice vehicle um i think when you looked at some of the other models we’ve seen and one of the things that always concerns me is storage and i think all electric cars have their challenges but we looked at the last one and of course it was very small this is actually you know more voluminous even though it is small you can get

A lot more in here so your tools and uh and certainly all your cables and all the things that you want to it but this is this is the the brilliant of electrics this is your work of the work screen wash put your cable away we’re good so really good heavy car lots of it’s really funky really chunky there’s this it feels solid which is great really good again

Look at this you know push button and the dashboard the display i have to say it’s just 2022 it’s state of the art and it’s everything you’d expect from a modern ev it’s pretty decent this is a good car and i’m going to tell you how good it is in six months time when we’ve got 15 18 000 miles on it and again in in 18 months time when we’ve maybe got 30 or 40

000 miles on it we’ve been in our ford we’ve tested the service regimes we’ve seen how much it cost and how because there’s lots of conversation about oh well you know servicing is going to be really cheap with electric vehicles that’s how they’re going to be so that’s how you can afford to pay so much fun we’ve yet to really test that there’s different models

Different manufacturers are really coming at this from very different arenas so again what we’re trying to do is support you by sharing the information that we’ve got it we do it through our all of our our channels and everything’s available from the pro hire website on our pro program page our pro world page please dive in there and if you need any information

You’ll want to look at what we’re doing then just shout and as always you know everything we showcase is available from program or pro hire on contract tire you know so we’re running this equipment we’re managing this equipment whether it’s electric vans trucks we’re moving into hydrogen all of those things are available for a conversation and great thing about

The presentations we do and the conversation we have it doesn’t cost you any money so our content in this world is about trying to help you get where you need to be and not trying to take something from it so it’s not trying to take advantage about trying to share real world information so you’ve got some proper understandable dialogue right the way across from

Charges from batch technology and beyond so with a lot of these things of course battery tech is great drives forward good range fast charging a cable tidy at the front but what’s the boot like let’s have a look you know um yeah to look a lot of the challenges the electric vehicles of course is the size of storage and and all the rest especially if it’s an

Suv or crossover because you’ve got a family to to manage this is not bad you know i have to say um you know as you can tell we just picked the car up lots of ford boxes it is brand new um so the next time we show it to you it will probably have some war wounds and some scars but that’s the only way you’re going to really tell how good something really is boot

Yeah charging points all sorts of bits and pieces under here we have oh look what we got here we’ve got a bag with something in it an air pump so i’m assuming well there’s definitely no spare because there’s no room for one so it’s it’s looking at how we let’s have a look at what’s in here even why not be rude to tempt you with a bag and not tell you what’s

In there but let’s have a quick look another set of cables so we’re going for house cables i guess as well with a seven kilowatt charging for home so that’s what you’ve got in there so this is capable of charging at home um on a seven kilowatt turn system but equally so my suggestion with with any of this stuff now is to ensure if you’re taking a bat a car with

Big batteries and and 70 kilowatts an upper or a decent size set of batteries you need to have a proper seven kilowatt um charger set into your home um and you can work from there because it really is going to make a big difference to you but not required you know not absolutely not required to operate these but i think as the world is moving into a different

Place people talk about infrastructure all the time and i guess the challenge about infrastructure is these cars there was more cars sold in march of this year uh 2022 than the entirety of 2019. so the the bit for me is infrastructure has planned its way forward and it is growing but what’s happening is the ev super highway is overtaking it and really moving

Out there so getting onto charges externally yes it’s possible yes it’s expensive yes electric is more expensive than it was it’s still far cheaper than diesel but doing it at home it’s where the controls gonna come from especially as we move forward over this next year or two so this is a quick delve into something we’re very pleased to see on our own fleet

We’re very pleased to be able to have one of these to to look at and we’re going to look at some more i’m delighted to be able to talk to you guys again from from pro i truck tv i said before please subscribe if you can we’re trying to produce content that people are are asking for and everything’s available on our pro hire website either on the program page

Prior truck tv page or the pro world page looking forward to seeing you guys really soon with our podcast and again our next video was already it’s in for for for two weeks time so take care guys and we’ll see you really soon
