Ford CEO Teases Bronco EV on Twitter

Bronco Mach-E Coming?

  • Which is apparently how EVs are announced now

  • CEO Takes a page from Musk, engages with fans


With the Ford F-150 Lightning set for reveal next week, what about the rest of the automaker’s line? Well, it looks like for the Ford Bronco, at least, there could be an EV model coming soon. At least that’s what the company’s CEO is hinting at on Twitter.

Taking a page from a certain other automaker CEO, Ford’s Jim Farley has been spending more time on social media, though he certainly hasn’t been as controversial as Mr Musk (at least yet). A user of the social media site, in response to a post from Farley marking the anniversary of the passing of Carroll Shelby, asked “why don’t we have an EV opinion on the new product like the Bronco.” With most reports, and with Farley himself, appearing to take opinion to mean option, the CEO replied.

“Why do you think we don’t?”

That leaves little to the imagination that yes, Ford is planning to release an electric version of the Ford Bronco. Though it would be the first electrified model on the platform that Bronco largely shares with the Ranger pickup.

When will it be revealed? Of course, Farley isn’t going that far. He’s on the Lightning hype train right now, making it clear to critics of that vehicle that they need to wait and see what’s in store. Then, of course, to drive it.

Oh, and he also makes it clear that no, Ford is not currently accepting Doge for anyone who wants to place an order for their Ford.
