With the current EPA 2 cycle numbers the MME's efficiency slots it in just above the Jaguar I-Pace 2019 and Audi E-Tron 2019; both at the bottom. It's saving grace is the size of the extended range battery. Ford has a bit of room to improve efficiency based on initial numbers. They did not do bad, however, more battery weight and only about 15% difference compared to another's small suv's range. Possibly heavier adhesive was used to hold down the glass roof? Was I hoping for better, of course, but it works for me. Should also be noted they had room to open at least 6% more of the battery; which brings 15 to 9%.I think I'd just drive an ICE car rather than doing either. If I'm gonna be in fear of running out fuel to where I can't use the A/C on my fancy new $60,000 car, then it's staying home on road trips while I drive my Escape.
My guess is the 4x will get around 235 mi real world range (376 Wh/mi, 235 Km/mi) @ 70 mph, ran dry with air, based of the current EPA 2 cycle numbers and others performance. Pure guess. Start the guessing now, do it quick we should have some info soon. I think this vehicle will work no problem 99% of the time, down to about -10 F (-23 C), which works for me. Hoping new chargers pop up not the ones we have get congested.
235 x 0.7 / 70 mph = 2 hr 20 min (guess)
