Ford is currently in London as part of a European tour to introduce and get consumers up-close and personal with their first electric vehicle (EV), the Ford Mustang Mach-e.
During the stop in London, Ford confirmed to Autoblog that the automaker plans to launch the new EV at the same in both North America and Europe in late 2020.
The European EV market is seen as possibly the second largest market for early adopters of EV’s. That’s due in part to the strict rules around CO2 emissions, that automakers must comply with or face heavy fines.
To that end, Ford has announced that by the end of 2021, they will have as many as 18 EV’s for sale, up from 14 they hope to have on the market in Europe by the end of 2020.
To help support the growth in sales of Ford EV’s in Europe over the coming years, they also announced plans to build 1,000 charging stations over the next 3 years. Ford also partnered with IONITY, which also has plans to build an additional 400 fast-charging stations in Europe before the end of the year.
Canadians prices for the Mustang Mach-E are in the range of $50,495CDN for the lowest ‘Select’ model, to $71,995CDN for the now sold-out 1st Edition.
