News Midsize EV Crossovers From Ford And Lincoln On The Way

Midsize EV Crossovers From Ford And Lincoln On The Way

Ford committed to a huge $11 billion electrification plan a few years ago and the new midsize electric CUVs from Ford and Lincoln are part of that plan

This information comes at a time when the race for EV-everything is heating up something fierce. Ford’s long been at the forefront of hybrid technology but they’ve slipped up somewhat on introducing full-electric vehicle. Both Ford and Lincoln will quickly address as it’s been suggested that a pair of electric midsize crossovers are on their way for 2023.

In a story by Automotive News, sources shared that these new utility vehicles will be built at the Flat Rock Assembly plant sometime in late 2022 for the 2023. These vehicles will be close in size to the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus and, respectively codenamed CDX746 and CDX747, they will be assembled on Ford’s dedicated battery-electric platform.

Now that this is known, is seems clear that the Lincoln Continental’s days are numbered. The big Conti never managed to sway luxury sedan buyers despite its numerous merits. Production is expected to continue in China however, as reported in the original story, it is doubtful that it will be imported especially given the tariff situation.

As for production n umbers of these new electric CUVs, it seems that Ford’s asked it suppliers to prepare for 65,000 annual units.
