The latest information says the Ford Explorer Electric will be put into production in late 2024, and its market launch is scheduled for early 2025.
Sometimes the Blue Oval changes the timing for the availability of its models for objective and subjective reasons. In particular, recent reports say the company has pushed back its plans on the all-electric Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator. They are now on track to enter the market in early 2025, according to Ford Authority.
The production should begin in late 2024 – neither at the Cuautitlan Assembly plant in Mexico nor at Ford’s facility in Chicago, but at the Ford Oakville Assembly in Canada. The manufacturer is going to retool the Canadian factory for the production of five new EVs.
The same as in the case with Ford F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E which have interested the public largely because they wear the iconic ‘F-150’ and ‘Mustang’ nameplates, the Ford Explorer Electric is a potential success.
The last will apparently carry over a number of features of the former two, like a large touchscreen and’s other ‘goodies’ Ford offers in its newest vehicles.
The Ford Explorer Electric has been underway since 2021. According to Ford’s CEO, the electric version won’t look similar to the traditional Explorer, because the company wants to differentiate its EV range from gasoline models.
