Suddenly all these car manufacturers are going electric … including Ford. I wonder why? 😛 Mind you I do like the Mustang Mach-E and the F150 Electric.
Taken from Engadget … Ford is taking an aggressive approach to its electrification strategy in Europe, announcing that all its passenger vehicles will be all-electric or hybrid by mid-2026. All of its consumer vehicles will be fully electric by 2030, meaning Ford will have one of the most aggressive EV roadmaps of any European automaker. On the commercial side, the company plans to have plug-in hybrid (PHEV) or all-electric vehicles in two-thirds of its lineup by 2030.
As part of that process, Ford will invest $1 billion into its assembly plant in Cologne, Germany, allowing it to produce an all-electric model in two years. That’s part of the company’s recently announced $29 billion global investment in electric and autonomous vehicles through 2025. “We are charging into an all-electric future in Europe,” said Ford of Europe president Stuart Rowley.
“We will offer an exceptional range of electrified vehicles, supported by customer-centric digital services and experiences, allowing our customers to come with us on the journey to a fully electric future, starting right now with the launch of the all-electric Mustang Mach-E.”
