Future Ford EV Platforms Coming For Wide Range Of Vehicles

Sponsored Links

Just yesterday, we reported that a pair of new Ford EV platforms were in the works, each designed for a different range of vehicles. Now, these new Ford EV platforms have been officially announced at the automaker’s Capital Markets Day virtual meeting with investors. The two platforms are designed to underpin a wide variety of vehicles, lowering development and production costs as well as simplifying both processes.

The first platform will be used in both rear- and all-wheel-drive applications in segments including active lifestyle vehicles, cargo vehicles, mid-size trucks, rugged SUVs, and larger two- and three-row crossovers – possibly the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator, as well as the next-gen Ford Mustang Mach-E. As Ford Authority reported earlier today, an all-electric Explorer is already in the works.

The second of the two Ford EV platforms is designed to underpin full-size trucks and utility vehicles, like the Ford F-150, Ford Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator. Ford provided a few photos of the new platforms during its presentation, which feature rough outlines of the types of vehicles they’ll be used in, but that’s the extent of the details it’s willing to reveal at this time.

According to yesterday’s report, the smaller of the two platforms will be called GE2 and will represent a next-gen version of the GE platform that underpins the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The larger platform is reportedly called TE1, and will be used on the Ford F-150 Lightning.

Ford has one and possibly two new European EVs built on Volkswagen’s MEB platform on the way as part of its new partnership with the German automaker and will build one EV on Rivian’s skateboard platform as well. But with a bevy of new electric vehicles in the works, including Ford and Lincoln branded crossovers for North America, the automaker will need its own dedicated platforms for future products.

  1. LMAO! Good question GreggT. FoMoCo can’t finish/deliver the stuff sitting around or waiting for release. Sheesh 😬🙄, what a freakin’ joke.

  2. Build it and they will come…. FORD is so far ahead of the competition the next guy thinks he is leading! As with every disruptive technology, it will take a decade to take hold and flourish…. once all the automotive dinosaurs have passed!

    • What good is “technically advanced” vehicles if they cannot deliver? At least Toyota is suppling their customers and dealers unlike Ford.
