Ford has announced their big plan for Europe as well as a brand new Ford Model E fleet of both consumer and commercial electric cars.
Ford has taken their electric division, Ford Model E, by storm and is already making huge plans for international markets.
Ford has just announced that it will be building one of its biggest electric vehicle battery plants in Turkey that will become the sole hub for Ford electric vehicles across Europe. Ford has also set out a goal to grow its EV sales up to around 600,000 units per year in Europe alone by 2024.
Ford knows very well that it will never reach this target with its current most popular EV, the Fords Mustang Mach E, alone. So, they have announced 3 brand new passenger electric vehicles and 5 brand new commercial electric vehicles by 2024 as well. Ford also announced that they will launch yet another crossover that is also based on the MEB platform.
So we can expect a total of 9 brand new Ford electric vehicles added to the Ford fleet that will include:
- Ford Puma electric vehicle
- Ford Sport Crossover electric vehicle
- Ford Medium-size Crossover electric vehicle
- Ford Mustang Mach E electric vehicle
- Ford Transit Courier electric vehicle
- Ford Tourneo Courier electric vehicle
- Ford Transit Custom electric vehicle
- Ford Tourneo Custom electric vehicle
- Ford E-Transit electric vehicle
With the massive Ford battery plant in Turkey, this will be the heart of Ford's electric vehicle production for the European market which is one of the biggest markets for the company and with Europe being one of the most strict continents around clamping down on emissions, Ford has quite frankly made the best decision by announcing their brand new EV fleet.
Furthermore, from a consumer's point of view, Europeans are currently experiencing record-high fuel costs and taxes, plus taxes on cars with higher emissions that in return make the idea of switching over to electric vehicles that much more attractive. And for decades already, Ford has been a popular car brand amongst the European market and that shows that brand loyalty is still a valid point. So if current Ford customers can stick with their brand of choice and still benefits from what electric vehicles offer, it just makes sense both ways.
