Let the vision become a reality!
Ford reveals its latest step towards a zero emissions and carbon neutral future by introducing no less than nine all-electric vehicles in Europe by 2024. Comprising of three new electric passenger vehicles and four new electric commercial vehicles, this move certainly reaffirms Fords leadership as Europe’s top- selling commercial brand.
In the last few years, Ford has accelerated its plan to electrify its vehicle line up several times.
The Puma, Ford’s best-selling passenger vehicle, will be available from 2024 as all-electric version whilst the all-new Transit Courier, the popular light commercial vehicle, along with the Tourneo Courier, a compact, multi-purpose vehicle, will also debut as all-electric in 2024.
The first volume all-electric passenger vehicle to come out of the Ford Cologne Electrification Centre will be a five-seat, medium-sized crossover. In 2021, sports utilities and crossovers accounted for 58 percent of all Ford passenger vehicles sold in the continent, up nearly 20 percentage points from 2020.
EV push in Europe supports the acceleration of the Ford+ plan and global goal of 2 million + annual production of EVs by 2026.
Always with its finger on the pulse, Ford has recently revealed the creation of its new global business unit – Ford Model e-focused on the design, production and distribution of electric and connected vehicles.
Adding to the excitement of its all-electric, planet saving line-up, a further class -leading union has been formed in plans to form a battery Gigafactory in Turkey, phasing out emissions from commercial vehicles by 2035.
The investment between Ford, SK On Co.; Ltd and Koc; Holding, including support from the Turkish Government will directly benefit large and small commercial vehicle operators across Europe, reducing energy and running costs and providing a significant contribution to CO2 reduction. Furthermore, this exciting move is one of the most successful joint ventures seen in the global automotive industry.
Ford of Europe Chairman Stuart Rowley said: “Ford is stepping into our future and capitalizing our strengths to build a thriving, profitable business whilst playing our part in protecting the planet.”
