Ford EV Production Will Surpass Two Million Units Annually By 2026

This morning, Ford announced a significant reorganization that will separate its EV and ICE vehicle businesses into two distinct entities – Model e and Ford Blue. As part of that announcement, the automaker also revealed that it plans to produce two million all-electric vehicles annually by 2026, which it anticipates will account for around a third of the total global EV production by that date. This goal also builds upon Ford’s previously announced plan to double EV production to 600,000 units per year by 2024.

Ford continues to move the needle in terms of its electrified vehicle plans as it invests heavily in the production of those vehicles, as well as the batteries that will power them. The automaker previously announced that its future EVs will consist of its more iconic models, as well as commercial vehicles, but that portfolio is growing rapidly.

Higher-than-expected demand for the automaker’s first mass-produced EV, the Ford Mustang Mach-E, has thus far exceeded FoMoCo’s production capacity, which prompted it to recently announce that it will double that model’s annual production at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant to 200,000 units by 2023. Reaching that goal meant that it also had to push back the launch of the forthcoming all-electric Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator to 2024 – which were originally slated to be produced alongside the Mach-E in Mexico, however.

Meanwhile, FoMoCo will also roughly double its planned Ford F-150 Lightning production at the Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center to around 150,000 units per year by mid-2023 and is also exploring ways to expand E-Transit production. These models will soon be joined by a Ford Focus EV, as Ford Authority recently reported, as well as a Ford Puma EV, with many more likely to follow in the coming years.

    Oh, no! That means at least (at the very least) two million fewer internal combustion engines, and probably many of them of the very patriotic coal-rollin’ variety! WHAT WILL WE DO?? Two million will become 20 million in ten years!
    This is an onslaught of our rights! The very sky above us, although getting cleaner as a result of more EVs, IS GONNA FALL RIGHT ON THE CONSTITUTION AND THE FLAG! Them EV owners are gonna make us be WOKE, and have to have PRONOUNS!
    THE HORROR!

    Calm down.
    Try to not be so easily triggered by something that doesn’t really affect you in any way, shape or form.
    Take a deep breath.
    You’ll be okay.
    And remember: if you don’t want one of these librul-gubbamint EVs, you don’t have to buy one.
    That’s fine with the rest of us.

      ” if you don’t want one of these librul-gubbamint EVs, you don’t have to buy one” Except, you do have to subsidize them and the infrastructure to support them through the taxes you pay so the libruls can pass out more money to their political friends. Let’s not interfere with the free market and let the costs of EVs and the EV network be fully borne by the people purchasing them.

    Somehow I have my doubts that half of what Ford sells in 2026 will be an EV.

    We ordered 2 ICE vehicles for 2022, one already came in and the second has a production date next month. They can build all the EVs they want but they will not replace a ICE for long trips, unless you like adding hours to your trip. Many people park where there are no chargers, street parking, they can’t tow, they have issues with their 12 volt batteries dying, software issue, poor heat in cold weather and shorter distances for range. What will be the resale after the 8 year battery warranty is over. Replacement packs are 20 to 28K for the Mach E and materials for batteries have stopped going down. Hybird are logical, full EV not yet.
