Back in April, Lincoln revealed its new Star Concept, a highly-stylized, futuristic vehicle that was designed to preview the luxury brand’s electrified future. However, it isn’t the last Lincoln EV Concept by a long shot, and in fact, the latest preview of the brand’s future lineup will debut tonight at 8pm EDT, as Lincoln has revealed via Twitter along with a short teaser clip giving us a glimpse at what to expect from this new concept.
One hundred years of innovation and counting…
Today at 8PM EDT, we will debut our vision for mobility in the future.

This new Lincoln EV Concept looks much more coupe-like than the Star Concept, which is a taller crossover, though its front end design looks very similar. Though the clip does a pretty good job of concealing this new model, we can clearly see its thin, curved front light bar, prominent Lincoln “Star” badge, and curvy rear section as the concept flashes across some stark looking terrain.
Back in August, Lincoln trademarked the “Star” name in the U.S., signaling that it could be used on a future EV. However, FoMoCo’s luxury arm will be launching a grand total of four new all-electric vehicles by 2026. Additionally, every model currently in the Lincoln lineup will have an EV variant available by 2027, while the luxury brand also plans on adding at least one all-new EV model by that same date. Of those four new EV models, Lincoln plans to launch three of them by 2025, with the fourth following in 2026.
As Ford Authority reported in December, the Lincoln Aviator EV was originally expected to launch in 2023, but was recently pushed back to 2024 – along with the Ford Explorer EV – as FoMoCo works to increase production of the Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Blue Oval initially planned on building the Aviator and Explorer EVs at the Ford Cuautitlan Assembly Plant in Mexico alongside the Mach-E. Now, it’s unclear where those future models will be produced, though recent rumors suggest that both may be built at the Ford Oakville Assembly Plant in Canada.
