Ford will launch a full slate of electric SUVs by 2026 under its iconic Lincoln brand in North America.
The company will introduce at least five new EV SUVs by 2026.
This includes the replacements or supplements to current gas-powered models, including the Corsair, Nautilus, Aviator and the Navigator.
Lincoln representatives did not provide specifics around the move to electrify. However, we do know some things.
The first of the new Lincoln EV SUVs will be a large crossover about the Aviator’s size. This vehicle will begin production in late 2024 or early 2025 at Ford’s Oakville plant in Ontario.
Lincoln also plans to introduce potential replacements for both the compact Corsair and the mid-size Nautilus in 2025 or 2026. Currently, the Oakville plant will also produce these vehicles. However, productions plans are not finalized as of yet.
A larger Lincoln SUV will then go into production in 2026. This SUV will share a new dedicated EV truck platform with the next-generation Ford F-150 Lightning.
The electrification of Lincoln is part of a broader plan by Ford to electrify its lineup with a $30 billion investment through 2030.
Ford wants to rival General Motors in the premium utility vehicle space as per the sources. So, we should expect Lincoln to take on Cadillac over the next several years.
