Ford Motor Co. plans to build a pair of new all-electric midsize crossovers at its Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico.
We’ve known of it thanks to Ford Authority. The company changed its plans several times before choosing the facility in Mexico, where it has been already producing the Mustang Mach-E.
Ford Motor Co’s intention includes one Ford and one Lincoln model, sized similar to the Lincoln Nautilus. Reports say the forthcoming EV crossovers are codenamed CDX746 and CDX747.
They will join the EV range of the brand, which now includes the Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover, E-Transit van, and the Ford F-150 Electric truck. Plus Ford is readying a BEV for Europe that will share Volkswagen’s MEB platform.
Ford’s new electric crossovers will go into production in late 2022 or early 2023. We’ll see them at dealer showrooms as the 2023 models. Previously the automaker estimated to sell annually around 65,000 vehicles (combined).
