Ford is reportedly wanting to ride the coattails of success of the Mustang Mach E. The automaker is trying to speed up the execution of two more battery-electric SUV models that will share their underpinnings with the Mach E. These new models are expected to arrive in early 2023.
Ford Authority reports Ford is aiming to launch two new midsize SUV’s based on the Mach E. One will be for the Ford brand, while one will go to Lincoln. Both models are expected to be similar in size to the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of two new EV SUV’s from Ford, but there are more details this time.
The report suggests both new models will be built alongside the Mustang Mach E at Ford’s Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico. Supplier sources have reportedly suggested Ford wants to move 65,000 copies of these new SUV’s annually. Production is expected to start in late 2022 or the first quarter of 2023.
These are not the only battery-electric SUVs rumored to come out of the Blue Oval. Rumors have surfaced the company is planning to build other EV SUV’s at its Oakville, Ontario assembly plant. These SUVs could even be built on Volkswagen’s MEB architecture, which Ford has already confirmed it will leverage for certain European models.
