According to some signs, Lincoln has been preparing to launch its first battery-electric vehicle – a close relative to the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Ford Motor’s premium brand Lincoln announced in June that it would electrify its entire lineup by 2030. The company plans to introduce its first fully electric model next year – just in time for Lincoln’s 100th anniversary. We recall that Henry Ford bought the Lincoln Motor Company in 1922 and made it a Ford division.
The other day, Ford Authority’s spies caught a camouflaged test mule. They concluded it was an early prototype of the Lincoln EV.
We do know that someday Lincoln intends to spawn an electric vehicle inspired by the Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover. The Lincoln model will ride on the same flexible platform adopting both rear- and all-wheel-drive layouts. And we don’t know yet whether Mach-E’s premium sibling will be the very first Lincoln EV.
In fact, the company has already revealed some info about its upcoming battery-electric vehicle. When Lincoln teased its new car it mentioned a more spacious interior with “a striking, modern aesthetic, thoughtful details, clever storage solutions, minimalistic panels, a larger, expansive panoramic vista roof, a coast-to-coast display, and a new digital design language – Constellation”.
The forthcoming Lincoln vehicle will represent the “Quiet Flight DNA” design philosophy. To understand what it’s about, look at the Zephyr Reflection Concept.
