Lincoln has been Ford’s luxurious model for nearly precisely a century now—the Blue Oval purchased the Lincoln Motor Firm from Henry Leland on February 4, 1922. Now the model is preparing for its subsequent century with a raft of latest battery-electric SUVs due between now and 2026, in response to Reuters.
Final June, Lincoln introduced that it will develop into a totally battery-electric model by 2030. It is a no-brainer for the automaker, given how nicely electrical motors—with instantaneous torque and near-silent operation—are suited to luxurious autos.
On the time, Lincoln introduced that its first absolutely electrical mannequin would arrive in 2022, in each rear- and all-wheel-drive configurations. Though we’ve not seen any renderings or spy pictures of this primary Lincoln battery EV, Occam’s razor suggests it will likely be constructed on the identical platform as Ford’s Mustang Mach-E crossover.
Since then, Ford has doubled down on its BEV fever, rising manufacturing capability for each the Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, with sufficient batteries to provide 200,000 BEVs in 2023.
So it isn’t sudden that Lincoln will get even busier on the EV entrance in 2024. That is when the primary of the brand new EVs arrives, Reuters says. The automobile shall be a big crossover comparable in dimension to the Lincoln Aviator and shall be constructed at Ford’s manufacturing unit in Oakville in Canada. Ford is spending $1.5 billion to transform that facility into an EV manufacturing unit.
We must always see some smaller crossovers (to exchange the Corsair and Nautilus) in 2025 or 2026—these are anticipated to additionally use the Mach-E platform or an evolution thereof.
Lastly, an enormous SUV comparable in dimension to the Navigator is slated for 2026. This might use the identical EV platform that Ford will develop for the next-gen electrical F-150 pickup truck.
