Question discripancy between firing a particle with a given energy and using electric field to accelerate it to the same energy

I am simulating metal bombardment by proton. I can fire it with a given energy. in principle, I can also add electric field to accelerate it to the same energy. The later is what my simulation happens to model. However, the number of liberated electrons in each case is much different from the other. It seems adding electric field makes the step length very big, and hence, fewer interaction. Any explanation, as well as solution to the discrepancy?
