Lincoln EVs are expected to arrive in 2026, four years ahead of schedule.
5 Lincoln EVs Until 2026
Last summer, Lincoln declared that it would only sell all-electric vehicles by 2030.
Still, a new report from Reuters claims that a complete portfolio of electric crossovers would arrive much sooner, with at least five EVs due by the end of 2026.
Here are the major highlights:
- Three anonymous sources told Reuters that Lincoln plans to launch five new electrified vehicles by the end of 2026.
- When it goes into production in late 2024, the first Lincoln EV will be comparable to the three-row Aviator.
- By 2026, the Navigator will be joined by an electric version based on the dedicated EV truck platform of the next-generation Ford F-150 Lightning.
The Company does not currently sell an electric vehicle (Aviator and Corsair plug-in hybrids can travel more than 20 miles on electric power alone), but it plans to do so shortly.
According to three anonymous sources quoted by Reuters, the first electric Lincoln will be about the size of a three-row Aviator.
It is expected to start production in late 2024 or early 2025 at Ford’s Oakville, Ontario, facility, allocated $1.5 billion to convert from producing gas cars to electric vehicles.
This is most likely the SUV Lincoln has indicated will appear this year (perhaps dubbed “Mark E”).
In 2025 and 2026, the Oakville facility will begin producing electric successors to the tiny Corsair and mid-size Nautilus.
According to Reuters ‘ sources, these designs have not been completed, but they are expected to be based on an improved version of the Ford Mustang Mach E’s electric platform.
In 2026, an electric version of the full-size Navigator will debut, based on the specialized EV truck chassis that will underlie the next-generation Ford F-150 Lightning.
Lincoln’s electrification is part of Ford’s $30 billion investment in electric vehicles and batteries through 2030, with the company intending to produce 600,000 electric cars annually in the next two years.
The electric Lincoln lineup will compete with the Cadillac EVs that will arrive in the future years, notably the Lyriq SUV, which will be on sale this year.
