Ford’s pipeline of battery-electric vehicles may include an electrified Lincoln Corsair. A new report suggests an electrified Corsair could arrive in 2025 as a 2026 model.
Automotive News cites an industry forecasting firm as disclosing an electric Corsair. The forecast reportedly displays a Corsair-E model, which will ride on a dedicated EV architecture. The architecture is expected to be shared with other Ford products. Most products on the architecture are expected to be built at the company’s Oakville, Ontario assembly plant.
Last fall Ford announced plans to transform the Oakville plant to an electric vehicle plant. The announcement did not include any future product announcements. Subsequently, Ford has not confirmed reports surrounding the notion of a Corsair-E.
While an electric Corsair may be slated for later in the decade, it won’t be the first electric Lincoln. Rumors have suggested the company is working on a Lincoln product based on the Ford Mustang Mach E. Additionally, rumors have been floated around the possibility of a battery-electric midsize SUV.
In January 2020 Ford announced plans to build a battery-electric Lincoln SUV off of Rivian’s skateboard platform. Those plans were then scrapped a few months later due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ford is still planning to leverage the Rivian architecture for a future EV, but which brand will get it is still unknown.
Ford’s new CEO Jim Farley has also referred to EV’s as “fundamental” to Lincoln’s strategy.
