A new generation of fully-connected, zero-emission vehicles, will be joining the All-Electric Mustang Mach-E (available now), Mustang Mach-E GT (available now), and E-Transit (coming in spring 2022) as Ford accelerates global plans to boost electric and commercial vehicle capacity and achieve carbon neutrality across its European footprint of facilities, logistics, and suppliers by 2035.
As Europe’s top-selling commercial vehicle brand, Ford will be bringing four new electric vehicles to their iconic Transit range.
Leading the way will be an All-New Transit Custom one-tonne van and the Tourneo Custom multi-purpose vehicle, coming in 2023, followed by the smaller, next-generation Transit Courier van and the Tourneo Courier multi-purpose vehicle in 2024.
As for passenger vehicles, there will be a five-seat, medium-sized crossover offering a 310-mile driving range on a single charge, which will be revealed later this year.
From 2024, customers will be able to purchase an all-electric version of the Ford Puma, Ford’s best-selling compact crossover in Europe in 2021.
There will also be a second sports crossover – more details coming soon!
Ford Motor Company has also created a new global business unit – Ford Model e – focussed on developing new design concepts and technologies to improve the battery performance and connectivity of Ford’s future electric vehicles, as well as charging and recycling capabilities.
"Our march toward an all-electric future is an absolute necessity for Ford to meet the mobility needs of customers across a transforming Europe. It’s also about the pressing need for greater care of our planet, making a positive contribution to society and reducing emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement", said Stuart Rowley, chair of Ford of Europe.
