In an electric vehicle the remaining range before recharging, is a crucial parameter. Now car giant Ford make the expected range, as the car can run, even more precise, so you do rækkeviddeangst.
It writes Ford in a press release.
Why Ford equipped the upcoming Mustang Mach-E with the Smart Range, which accurately predicts the car's range and becomes more accurate over time.
- Elbilkunder must be able to rely on the car's rækkeviddeestimater, so they can be sure to reach forward without anguish. Therefore, we have developed Intelligent Range. It is continuously at the forefront of the Mustang Mach-E's range, so you can enjoy the trip without worries, says Darren Palmer, Ford's global director of electric vehicles, in the press release.

the Technology works by the car's battery to report on the amount of power available, while drivlinjen detects the actual power consumption. Since the hot and cold weather have different effects on the scope, take the Smart Range also the current account of weather conditions by collecting data from the local weather forecast. The collected data is stored in addition in a cloud, that continuously can provide more accurate estimates of the vehicle's electricity consumption.
The electric Mustang Mach-E can also pull in data from other datatilkoblede Ford-electric cars, which can help to clarify the scope further. Mustang Mach-E can record and store varying køreforholds different power consumption, which include the factors as f.ex. speed, terrain, and climate.

More Mustang Mach-E-cars can therefore form a cross-section of electric car usage to optimize the accuracy on the entire fleet rækkeviddeestimater - even on the routes and driving conditions, that no one has embarked on before.
Ford will continuously optimize the Smart Range function accuracy through online updates. One of the future updates will make the system able to take into account traffic conditions in real time and any downhill gradients and heights on the road.
The 100% electric Ford Mustang Mach-E is expected to have a range of up to 600 km.
