Earlier today, Ford Motor Company shared seven of the thirteen forthcoming electrified vehicles that the automaker will introduce by 2020 – a list which includes a small, battery-electric SUV with at least 300 miles of total range.

The SUV, whose name has not yet been disclosed (but could include the “Model E” moniker for which Ford filed for a trademark in late-2013), will be built at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant and sold in North America, Europe, and Asia. The Flat Rock plant currently builds the Ford Mustang pony car and Lincoln Continental luxury sedan, and will add a new, volume-production autonomous car within the next few years. An investment of $700 million will be poured into the plant during the next four years to accommodate the additional production.

Ford has two decades of experience designing and building electrified vehicles. Today, the automaker is the second-biggest in America in terms of electrified-car sales volume, and first in plug-in-hybrid sales.
