The move toward all-electric motoring is gathering pace - a welcome move, no doubt, with the increased volatility of fuel prices at petrol stations. In the latest development, Ford has announced plans to introduce three new electric passenger vehicles and four electric commercial models by 2024, with a target of 600,000 electric vehicle sales in Europe within two years. This move follows on from the success of its current lineup of electric and hybrid models, the latest of which are available from Birchwood Ford today.
The first of these electric options will be an all-new medium-sized crossover, with production being carried out in Cologne, Germany from 2023. This will be followed by a second model in 2024, and the electrification of the Ford Puma being developed in Romania. For those with an eye on commercial models, meanwhile, the iconic Ford Transit lineup will be joined by a new Transit Custom, Tourneo Custom, Transit Courier Van, and Tourneo Courier.
Speaking about the new models, Stuart Rowley, chair, Ford of Europe, said: “Our march toward an all-electric future is an absolute necessity for Ford to meet the mobility needs of customers across a transforming Europe. It’s also about the pressing need for greater care of our planet, making a positive contribution to society and reducing emissions in line with the Paris Climate Agreement.
“These new Ford electric vehicles signal what is nothing less than the total transformation of our brand in Europe – a new generation of zero-emission vehicles, optimised for a connected world, offering our customers truly outstanding user experiences.”
