Electrifying news on future For
Ford is all set to power ahead over the coming five years with 13 new electric vehicles.
And it has now confirmed details of seven of them - a plug-in hybrid Transit Custom van will be joining its battery of models in Europe, and as well as hybrid versions of the iconic F-150 pickup and Mustang in the US there will be a fully electric SUV with an expected range of at least 300 miles for global sale.
Ford will be an auto and a mobility company, including leading in electrified and autonomous vehicles and providing new mobility solutions with a $4.5 billion investment in electrified vehicles by 2020 to bring greater fuel efficiency, capability, and power across Ford’s global vehicle line-up.
Applying approximately two decades of leadership in EVs and commercial vehicles, Ford also is working on a suite of services to make EVs even easier to live with and cooperating with several other manufacturers in Europe to create an ultra-fast charging network intended to be significantly faster than the most powerful charging system deployed today. An initial target of about 400 sites in Europe is planned. By 2020, consumers should have access to thousands of high-powered charging points.
