Rumormill: ‘Ford Model E’ Electric Vehicle To Enter Production In September 2019

While rival General Motors prepares to launch its new Chevrolet Bolt pure-electric vehicle and newcomer Tesla Motors continues to sling Model S sedans and Model X crossovers at a subset of buyers hungry for hip, eco-friendly coaches, Ford Motor Company sits more-or-less on the sidelines, the relatively short-range Focus Electric its sole offering in the battery electric vehicle (BEV) space.

Of course, with the automaker’s December 2015 announcement regarding plans to invest as much as $4.5 billion into electrified vehicles by 2020, we’d expected that might change. Alas, change it shall; according to Autoline, a “Ford Model E” BEV is in the pipeline, and expected to enter production in September 2019.

The Ford Model E will allegedly be produced at Ford’s future plant in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. That plant has yet to be officially announced, although we reported back in February on the automaker’s plans to build a facility there. Autoline expects an announcement confirming the San Luis Potosí plant “any day now.”

To hear Autoline‘s report on the rumored Ford Model E, watch the video above. (Comments occur at around the 3:45 mark.)
