Early last year, Ford announced that it would transition its entire European passenger vehicle lineup to EVs by 2030 or sooner, a move that has since been fortified by a planned investment of $50 billion by 2026 as FoMoCo aims to produce two million all-electric vehicles annually by that same date. Right now, the already-successful Ford Mustang Mach-E is the only EV currently on sale in the region, though it will soon be joined by the E-Transit, a Puma EV, and one or two models built on Volkswagen’s MEB platform. Now, the full Ford EV lineup in Europe has been revealed, and it will consist of a total of seven new vehicles by 2024.
Including the Mach-E, Puma EV, and E-Transit, the European Ford EV lineup will consist of a mixture of passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. In 2023, an all-new five-seat mid-size crossover will enter production at the Ford Cologne Electrification Center in Germany following its reveal later this year with a range of 500 kilometers (310 miles). It will be followed by a second EV – a “sports crossover” – on that same production line the next year. Additionally, Ford announced that the Puma EV will enter production at the Ford Craiova Assembly Plant in Romania starting in 2024.
Meanwhile, the Ford Transit range will gain a total of four new EV models – a Transit Custom one-ton van and Tourneo Custom multi-purpose vehicle in 2023, followed by the next-generation Transit Courier van and Tourneo Courier multi-purpose vehicle in 2024. Both the Transit and Tourneo Courier EVs will be built alongside the Puma EV at Ford’s Craiova Assembly Plant.
These plans align with Ford’s previous announcement that it would focus its future EV efforts on the automaker’s iconic models (which now include the Puma) and commercial vehicles. However, Ford doesn’t expect its all-electric lineup to be profitable until its second generation of EVs arrives following its recent split into two entities – Model e and Ford Blue – as Ford Authority reported last week.
