Ford competing with Tesla

Ford Motor has stated that it has the capacity to build around 600,000 electric vehicles globally within 24 months. Achieving this will rank Ford Motors second to Tesla as an electric vehicle maker in North America. Tesla currently leads and excels in manufacturing EVs.

Anika Salceda-Wycoco, the spokesperson for Lincoln comments, “too early to talk about specific details around the future vehicle or production plans.

Ford’s Electrical Vehicles under production

Ford Lincoln’s EVs will be a large crossover around the size of the Aviator and might go into production in late 2024 or early 2025 at the Ford’s Oakville, Ontario plant. This plant is part of the $1.5 billion changeovers from combustion-engine to battery-operated vehicles.

Apart from this, there are several other Lincoln EV crossovers, among which are the compact Corsair and the mid-size Nautilus built at the same plant in 2025 or 2016. There are no final plans yet disclosed regarding them.

Next-Generation of Ford

Ford’s EVs will sport an improved version of the electric vehicle platform, which supports the Ford Mustang Mach E.

The carmaker also has plans to manufacture a larger Lincoln SUV, a battery-powered companion to the big Navigator by 2026. Ford will be sharing a new dedicated EV truck platform with the next-gen Ford F-150 Lightning.

The plans to revolutionize the Lincoln brand in North America are focused on expanding the electrical vehicles market that offers premium utility vehicle parallels. A similar move has been seen by General Motors that is initiating to embark on a makeover for Cadillac.
