Rivian + Ford = Lincoln Mark E Electric SUV

Rivian and Ford’s partnership will birth a luxury electric SUV for Lincoln.


  • The Mark E will share much with the Rivian R1S.

  • Expected for 2022.

  • Could offer a combined 700-horsepower or more.


Lincoln and Ford have been hard at work rebuilding the luxury brand’s image and so far, with the exception of the “new” Continental, every step taken has paid off with interesting and attractive models. This is no way means that the vehicles are selling however this upcoming fully-electric SUV from Lincoln and Rivian could prove to be a solid offering in the burgeoning luxury SUV segment.

Ford Invests $500 Million in Rivian To Develop Electric Vehicle

Almost exactly a year ago, Ford announced that it was investing $500 million in the EV startup company. The first confirmed vehicle will be, more or less, a rebadged Rivian R1S SUV which will be dolled up into a Lincoln. Like the R1S, the Lincoln Mark E will roll on the “skateboard” platform with vigor thanks to individual electric motors located in each wheel. This configuration will probably sport a Black Label moniker and fetch well beyond the $125k range. Speaking of range, a dual-motor setup will likely be offered in the US, with more range, however a de-tuned quad-motor unit could be offered as a base model for just over $100k.

When the Lincoln Mark E arrives in 2022, it will face off with the Jaguar I-Pace, Tesla Model X, Audi e-Tron, and future GM electric SUVs.

We do have one question: Will the Lincoln Mark E be able to do the tank turn?
