Inspired by the Mustang, with the size of a Kuga and autonomy for almost 500 km, Ford will launch a 100% electric SUV in 2020. At the moment, it gives us details and a first photo. We advanced it just a week ago: Ford will launch in 2020 Ford Electric SUV. Only 7 days later, the oval mark officially confirms it through a statement and shows us a first photo (or teaser) of how this model will be. Although currently not all forms are seen, something that you said is also confirmed: will be inspired by the lines of the Mustang. From an icon of the past and present, to which the icon of the future should be.
For the development of this new electric SUV, which was initially speculated with the name of Mach 1 that now seems to be dismissed, the brand announces an investment of no less than 11,000 million dollars. Ford’s goal is to launch up to 16 new fully electric vehicles throughout its global range of 40 electrified vehicles until the year 2022.
Thus, although there was also information that pointed to this new SUV would be based on the platform of the new Focus, and the next Kuga, in the end, it will not be like that either. Ford confirms that it has created a division, called Ford Team Edison, specifically commissioned to develop electric vehicles for everyone and located in Detroit. And for the moment they already confirm that they work in an inspired design as we have said in the Mustang.
Under the direction of Darren Palmer in Product Development, this new team was created with the mission of applying a fresh approach to developing prototypes: “With approximations to the final product that can be developed faster”, says Ford’s own statement.
