Ford challenged Britain's smallest town to switch to electric with New Mustang Mach-E launch

FORD CHALLENGED BRITAIN'S SMALLEST TOWN TO SWITCH TO ELECTRIC WITH LAUNCH OF NEW FORD MUSTANG MACH-E

Residents of Britain's smallest town, the aptley named Fordwich, were invited to be amongst some of the first to try out the new Ford Mustang Mach-E as they took part in a unique three day mass test drive around the Kent countryside which started at local Brett Aggregates quarry. 

The 380 residents of Fordwich were challenged to switch to electric in the all new, all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E as new research* showed a large majority of those in the countryside (82%), small towns (79%) and villages (76%) would not currently feel confident purchasing an Electric Vehicle as their next vehicle, if the ban on petrol and diesel cars came in next week. 

About Fordwich

Fordwich, dubbed Ford-switch for the event, is a remnant market town and a beautiful ancient port on the River Great Stour.  Featured in the Doomsday book and dated as a town since 1184, although never having more than a few hundred residents, Fordwich is only 6 miles south from our dealership in Herne Bay, near Canterbury, Kent.

To encourage Fordwich residents to make the switch to an electric vehicle in the long term, Ford has also partnered with British Gas to install a public charging point at the Fordwich Arms pub.

About Ford Mustang Mach-E

Introducing the Mustang Mach-E: Ford’s first all-electric SUV. Beautifully sculpted design, state-of the-art technologies, and a maximum electric driving range of 379 miles. The Mustang Mach-E is an electric SUV that delivers instant acceleration, with the GT model capable of 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds.

Beautifully sculpted, the Mustang Mach-E does not compromise at all on style or design, so you can switch to an electric vehicle and still drive an eye-catching model. 

With a maximum range of 379 miles, you are not limited to driving around your local area and you won't get that range anxiety that is associated with electric vehicles.

There's a wide range of state-of-the-art technology that comes as standard with the Mustang Mach-E, including a vertical intuitive 15.5" infotainment touchscreen system with cloud connectivity, enabling real time route planning and traffic updates. The wireless charging helps you stay connected wherever you are on the road. The stylish charging pad keeps your interior clean of cables and cords.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is available to order today from £41,330 at County Garage Ford, Herne Bay with test drives being offered later this summer after the first customer orders from when the model was first announced have been satisfied..
